RESTORATION SERVICES
Each job starts with a through examination of the car with numerous photos to document the current condition of the
vehicle and a discussion with the owner to determine his or her goals for the finished car. From this information a
good faith estimate and timeline for completion will be provided for approval.

Customer interaction is requested in the parts procurement process or I can do that as well at the same hourly labor
rate as the restoration work.

overhaul, upholstery replacement, glass setting, and replace full body panels including lead work.

DRIVER
Some local outside services include media blasting, chrome, powder coat, painting, plating, acid dipping, and
machine work.

Here are some general guidelines to the 4 levels of restoration I offer. Of course each car has it’s own specific
needs depending on its state of disrepair and customer requirements.

Thanks for your consideration.
I specialize in 68 to 72 GM A body cars. My main focus is on Buick GS and Chevy Chevelles. That’s where I have
the most experience, reference material, access to outside vendors, and used part networking. Other cars would
be considered.
As concourse correct as current knowledge and materials permit.
•        Complete body off frame, every component refinished or replaced.
•        Complete body off frame, every component cleaned, refinished, or replaced.

      possible. Lead work is available.
