Completed Restoration: 1967 F-100

The 1967 Ford F-100 full restoration is now complete! This classic truck restoration has been an extensive restoration project for a few months now. Many restorations don't involve a complete disassembly where we take the cab and bed off the chassis, like we did here. For this one, we took the entire truck apart to repair every part and panel, and assembled it all back together. The truck originally belonged to the owner's grandfather. So, for sentimental reasons, he wanted to keep the cab of the truck. We definitely understand this way of thinking. We feel the same way about our cars, especially those that we remember driving 'back in ...

So much progress on the F100 Resto

There has been a lot of body work done on this truck. We've been spending a lot of time on the cab of the truck, repairing rust and getting the body ...

Progress on the ’67 F-100 Restoration

Restoration on the 1967 Ford F-100 stepside truck is in full swing. As you can see, the truck started out green. It will be getting a new shiny 'holly green' paint job that will have it sparkling in the sun. Most of the body, including the hood and doors, was sanded down to bare metal. There was a lot of body work to be done. The shop definitely smelled like bondo for a couple days! All the body work done on these auto restorations is well worth it to get those smooth, flawless lines we need. After the truck is painted, you will be able to see every little ding or wave in a panel, so we make sure the body work is always done perfectly so ...

Chevy K-20 Pickup Truck Paint Job

The latest full paint job was done on a big 1986 Chevy K-20 pickup truck. It was to be painted back to it's factory-original colors; a brown and gold two-toned theme. The Before Pic... There was some body work needed before paint. All of the parts were taken off, including the bed, and sanded down and repaired. To prevent rust from popping up underneath the truck and on the bed, we undercoated it, and brush-coated a rust prevention coating called POR on the bed. The glass for the windows was also replaced, as was the rubbers for the windows and doors. After primer, the first areas to be painted were the back of the bed, that is pushed ...

Fiberglass repairs on the big rig

This is probably the biggest rig to come into the shop! And with the exhaust stacks, it doesn't even fit all the way inside. This Freightliner tractor trailer is in for some fiberglass repair work for some small cracks and holes in the body, and then painted back to original color. It belongs to a customer we have done a classic car restoration for in the past, and she continues to bring us all of her vehicles for any body work that is needed.
