We are located at 5700 Ami Dr, Richmond, IL 60071, just behind Dog n' Suds, off of HWY 12. There are two points of entry: Ami Drive, and Commercial Drive. Our customer parking and front door are located on Ami Drive.
We perform complete restoration services, ranging from simple classic-car maintenance to full rotisserie, show-quality restorations.
We design and fabricate frames/chassis, fuel tanks, mounts, and many other components in house.
We also perform a variety of modifications to meet our customers' needs. These may include:
... and many more!
While often asked, it is impractical to predict the total cost of a restoration when considering the countless factors of a project.
Factors which affect the final cost include:
These and many other variables impact the total cost of your project, but we will work with you to plan your project and bring it to life.
In the restoration industry, a firm or fixed quote cannot be given.
However, a member of our team will walk through our planning check list with you to cover every possible area of your project to be touched. From there, we will build an estimate which identifies the cost of all parts discussed, common labor hours used in each area, and raw materials and consumables to be used in the project.
Expect the final total to be different from the estimate.
Our current shop rate, or labor rate, is $95 per hour. We bill based on actual work done by our staff on a weekly basis.
Other charges may vary from that, such as storage rates, and pick up or delivery costs.
We purchase all parts for a project through our distribution channels. All parts will be sold at retail cost, plus any shipping or other fees that may be incurred.
You may bring any parts you have already acquired for the project, however once it is in our shop, we will not accept customer supplied or purchased components. If these components fail, or are incorrect, the customer will be billed for any time lost replacing the component and/or finding a replacement.
In short, we do. We consider ourselves a one-stop restoration shop, and that includes parts.
Because we have agreements with manufacturers, distributors, and other vendors, we are able to access most of the components your restoration needs at competitive pricing with rapid delivery.
Please keep in mind:
We regularly take photos of our process as a form of record keeping and to keep the customer "in the loop."
We also take photos or video throughout the project for social media, as well as featuring projects in our monthly video updates (posted to YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook).
At the end of the project, we like to give each vehicle a more formal session for our customer and our website.
If you do not wish us to share your name (first name only in most cases), we are happy to accommodate you. Sharing our work is how we're able to do this thing we love and keep building amazing machines.
