There are moments in life and time that are golden.

You may not have realized it then, but in the rear view mirror, it’s crystal clear. We help freeze frame those memories; not with cameras. But with paint and metal.

Our Story

They don’t make them like they used to.

We’ve seen it all. Our experience and love of car culture has instilled a passion for restoring and preserving automobiles back to their former glory. To us, car restoration is not just a job.
We care about the stories behind vehicles and the people who drive them.

Simply the best around. Brandon Huhtala is down-to-Earth and skilled at what he does. I always focus on the small things, and I noticed that he paid special attention to the details and made sure to give my repair the highest level of care and attention that I have ever seen. He gets the job done, the right way, the first time.

Car Restoration Process

1

Discovery

We will assess the condition of the car and work with you to understand your vision and your desired outcome for the car restoration.
2

Disassembly

We dismantle the car, then catalog and strip the parts. This step reveals the true condition of the project and lays the groundwork for the rest of the project.
3

Preparation

During this step, we establish a solid foundation and quality parts and products.
4

Metal and Body Work

Based on the condition of the car, this may include dealing with dents, scratches, rust and corrosion.
5

Paint Work

We prime and paint projects in our in-house paint booth using high quality paint and finishes.
6

Assembly

We love watching all of the pieces we have restored come back together culminating in your dream car.

It’s more than a car; it’s a moment in time.

We help keep those moments alive with every vehicle we restore.
