Early iron and upholstery is no problem. Sams father taught him right and also how to things right. There is no substitute for experience and we have that. Young guys have no clue to how the early tops and seats were done. Along with these two cars we are also building a complete interior and top for a 1910 Model T. We are not afraid to tackle any job and will make it right.
Sam pays great attention to detail, as can be seen in the door panels. He hand made the arm rest and sculptured the door to fit with the console design.
Sam is fabricating another custom leather interior for this 1956 Chevy Belair. The body work and paint was started at another shop,we all heard this problem before.The customer pulled the car and BCP finished the body and paint and assembled the car. Sam is doing a fantastic job designing the console and door designs. The pattern follows all through the car,kick panels to qtrs. Of coarse the seats have a very interesting design also. Sammy puts a lot of detail into his work and fit and finish is his specialty. Wait until you see this interior in person and you will see why we are setting ourselves apart from the other competition.
We not only do our own upholstery, but will do your upholstery even if we didn't build your car. This leather upholstery was for a 1963 Nova we built. It has a custom built console and sculptured door panels. We pride ourselves on original ideas and not repeating the same designs. The meticulous workmanship and stitching is what sets us apart from the competition.
Again ,another car pulled from other shops to get finished. This 1957 Thunderbird had most of the bodywork done when it arrived, however we found much of the work had to be redone and fine tuned to meet our and our customers expectations. The doors were fitted along with the hood and deck lid. The body was blocked several times and painted completely with black urethane. The body was mated with the frame again and assembly began. This car will be judged and is expected to do very well. We will keep you posted on progress and judging.
1949 Mercury Limo
The building of the limo started as a four door car. I had no idea what I got myself into when this project came my way.Sometimes it is hard to say no to such a challenge. This is a tribute to the quality of technicians at Bobs Custom Paint, that can think outside the box and perform to the most challenging project we ever took on.
1975 Ford Bronco
This customer owned this truck since it was new. They raised their kids in it and was the wife's grocery get er for many years. We are pulling it all apart, rebuilding the motor and all suspension, brakes, steering, and body. The body was sent off to get blasted and floor panels ordered. However for a Bronco the body was intact and the body was solid due to being an Arizona car. Dad wanted to scrap it, but Mom wasn't done driving it ,so Dad is fixing it back to new for Mom. Don't tell me wife's don't have a say on how men spend their money.
This Blazer was recommended to us from Chucks Speed Center. They are rebuilding the engine and transmission while we straightened the body and aligned all the panels., The body was sprayed,core support and aprons powder coated and all new trim was added. We upholstered the interior in the original plaid and white. What a great way cruise the family around Keep an eye open for one cool Blazer Oh by the way the complete job was done in less than two months! I t would have been shorter but we had to wait on the plaid material.
Its a classic that we made a few improvements on. We made a three piece hood, added a gas door and had a complete metal roof made by one of the finest metal shops in California. The doors were fitted and the body massaged to be readied for the PPG paint. The chassis was fitted with independent suspension and a Ford fuel injected motor was added along with the A/C and power windows. The final assembly is in progress and will be finished with a full leather upholstery
This 1955 Chevy came to us in rough shape. After fitting all the panels it was blasted and straightened, and fitted with a new LS1 and 4L60 tranny .Two tone paint was applied,A/C added, disc brakes, all stainless polished, and a new interior was added. We are sure you will be seeing it around town as the customer can not quit driving it
