Our Special Services

Custom Paint Matching

No “Paint Code”???  No Problem.  We have matched paint for virtually anything imaginable.  Bring in a sample and we’ll have you painting in no time.  Interior colors included.  If it’s an original factory color you’re after, our database goes back to the 1920’s and covers just about anything with an internal combustion engine.

Aerosol Paint Can Filling

Once you’ve got that hard to find paint, let us fill an aerosol can or two for you.  Spray cans are convenient to have around for matching accessories or quick touch ups.  We can fill cans with pretty much any solvent borne paint; basecoat, enamel, lacquer, even interior dyes for that used dash or door panel.

Brake Shoe Relining

We can reline flexible and solid brake shoes and bands.  None too big or too small.  If the lining was riveted on…we can replace it.  We have offsite lining services available for bonded units as well.

Brake Drum and Rotor Resurfacing

Our lathe will handle drums and rotors up to 20″ (that’s not a misprint…20″).  We can often turn your iron while you wait.

Starter, Alternator and Battery Testing

Our electrical test equipment is state of the art.  Our electronic capacitive battery tester will pick up problems that traditional load testers fail to show.  Our automated alternator tester can more closely duplicate the on board electronics of today’s vehicles for a much more accurate diagnosis.  We perform these test free of charge.

Press Work

With our 30 ton electric over hydraulic press, we’re ready to take care of your front wheel drive bearings, axle bearings, whatever you’ve got that needs a little extra persuasion. We also do u-joints, ball joints, king pins, control arm bushings, piston pins etc.

Hose & Fittings

We can make and repair hydraulic, air, and pressure washer hoses 1/4″ through 3/4″, and limited 1″.  We also stock a wide selection of steel hydraulic adapters.

Key Duplicating

We have the ability to duplicate both traditional andelectronic “chip” keys for automotive applications, as well as many door locks, pad locks, cabinets etc.  Electronic keys can be very expensive and extremely inconvenient to purchase at the dealer after you’ve lost one.  (Some vehicles actually need to be towed in to the dealer for lost key recovery).  Get a spare set today!
