Default Restoration Shop

Looking for an established, reputable shop capable of a frame off restoration.
Prefer something closer to the VVest Side of the state, but........

Start up and at home shops,.... not in this reply please. I don't want/need the .

I am getting too old to finish all my projects and I want my J20 on the road and totally useable as a working 3/4 ton pickup.

Don't rule out home shops, as long as it is reputable and the recommendation comes from a restorer. The guy that did the work for me on our A you go to his house. His shop is in his back yard, and he does some high end stuff. He has employees and everything.

Most of the Model A 'points car' restorers all work from home shops as well.

Lots of good input guys.........thanks.

Bow Extreme,...........a frame shop for a complete frame off restoration?

Not looking for just a few up grades.........looking for a complete resto. with a "maybe" towards a new powerplant.

I have given several people here "opportunities".
I hope to be able to say that I learned from those mistakes.

If Ever again I hear the phrase......Now, here's the thing..........I might need to be restrained.

My shop may be willing to do it for you, however you would need to fill out an application, along with proof of available funds. I will also need references from repair or resto shops you have used in the last 2 years.

Give them a call and tell them what you want. The owner and his crew are very talented. Frame shop is part of their collision repair.
