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
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.
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
1955 Chevy Belair Hardtop

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
