Phase 6 - Trim
In order to expedite our processes more efficiently we perform the metal fabrication and trim phases simultaneously. All notations made during the intake phase are applied to pre-fitted trim components and any adjustments or repairs are completed.
Phase 7 - Paint 2
This is our second milestone involving the paint color selection.
This phase involves the painting of the inner body, exterior body and chassis. Prior to the color application there is a number of “pre” paint steps that are performed to ensure our quality standards are being met. First, we start with corrosion prevention of bare metal surfaces, next is an epoxy coating prior to any filler work, seems are welded, and repairs treated to prevent flaws in the final color coat. All repaired and rough fit trim is placed for a final fitting prior to color application. Finally, a color coat application is applied to primary polish.
Phase 8 - Assembly
The assembly process is where the fruits of our team’s efforts begin to show. As it implies, this is the phase where all the existing, repaired and new parts of the vehicle are put back together. In addition to the assembly, initial discussions of the upholstery work can begin in this phase.
Phase 9 - Upholstery
This is the third milestone. Early on in the assembly phase we will begin talking about finalizing carpet and leather selections. You will be invited back to the shop to see the progress first-hand as well as to select the upholstery colors to coordinate with the painted car.
Phase 10 - Refinement
Our rule of thumb is 5/50/500. We test drive your finished vehicle these distances with full safety inspections and tuning minded alterations performed between 5 and 50 miles. Once we have covered 500 miles, your vehicle will perform better than intended by the original manufacturer. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of this phase due to how it affects your impression of the vehicle’s place in your collection and our overall service.
Phase 11 - Release
This is when the fun begins. We are allowed the opportunity to re-introduce you to your vehicle at the venue of your choosing. Many of our projects are debuted at major concours events across the nation. If rejoining your collection is its final destination, logistical arrangements can be made and carried out by our team. We provide a flash drive with all relevant photographs and documents of your project as well as a binder crafted as a gift from our team to yours.
