Paint & Body

With an in-house paint and body shop, we offer artisan-quality autobody craftsmanship and custom paint jobs to your specification.

Whether you want 3-stage special effects or simple flat black, we can deliver a beautiful coat of paint. But the vast majority of a successful paint job lies in the prep work; paint hides nothing. In addition to skilled spraywork, our body technicians offer expertise in panel fitment and alignment; welding, grinding, and filling; block sanding and wet sanding to remove waves, pinholes, and other imperfections; and color sanding and buffing to achieve a mirror-smooth polish.

We use De Beer and House of Kolor award-winning products; whether matching an original shade, choosing a unique color, or creating a one-of-a-kind formula, our focus is a high-end finish that you will be proud to show off.

A quality shop doesn’t mind showing you their process firsthand so you can see where your money is going. We invite you to tour our facility and check out the goods for yourself. You will find we we work with extreme care and precision to put out an excellent product that you can enjoy for many years.

Steps of our complete paint job include:

Disassembly and tear down
Stripping away old paint, rust, and grime
Metal work including rust repair and panel replacement
Panel hanging and gapping
Bodywork including applying primers, body filler (i.e. Bondo), and sealers, as well as extensive blocking, sanding, smoothing, and surface prep
Disassembly, prep, mask, and tape
Spraying multiple layers of paint and clear coat
Color sanding and buffing
Reassembly

We’d love to meet you and discuss a plan for your project. Call 972-442-9793 or contact us online today.

We occasionally receive inquiries about painting over old paint or someone else’s bodywork. In such a situation, there is no way to know what materials were used, when the outside work was done, or whether it was done properly. Media blasting, whether through our shop or elsewhere, is highly recommended to ensure a clean palette for bodywork. We are unable to guarantee any paintwork over previous surface work done outside of our shop due to potential chemical reactions beyond our control.

  1. My 65 Impala SS is in the shop right now and has no motor in it but was wondering if your company could go to the shop to look at it. Possibly intested in Media Blasting the fram and car while the motor is out. The car is located in McKinney. Can, will, or do, you guys go look at vehicles and is there a charge to do so. Thanks

    1. Ed, we appreciate your looking to our business for your Impala. We can perform on-site inspections for serious inquiries, depending on scheduling; McKinney is not far so there would be no travel charge. You would like us to assess the frame and shell for blasting and priming, correct? Please give us a call or email at your convenience so we can discuss your needs further and set up a time.

  2. I have a 2013 Chevy cruze I dinged the front bumper and hood a little and figured this is the time to get what I want I have a spider 3 hood skin I want to have put on but it will have to b choped and molded to my original hood so far no one will accept my challenge simply because it sounds harder than it’s really going to be and their are not many custom shops in north TX I’m aware u specialize in older cars and hot rods but do u have any recommendations?

    1. Corey, sorry to hear about the damage. You are correct that we don’t handle late model customization; we have a few shops we refer to for regular paint and body but don’t have a lot of direct dealings with anyone in particular for specialty work such as what you are needing. Best bet is probably to bring the car and hood with you to visit a few shops so they can look at the work needed first hand.

  3. I am looking to have my 2006 Ford Mustang (Silver) stripped and painted metallic black and was wondering how much this would cost, just a rough estimate atleast.

    1. Marcel, thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, we will not be able to assist on a late model vehicle. We are a resto/rod shop and focus primarily on cars from 1973 and older. If you would like a referral to a local shop that can work on your Mustang, please let us know, and be sure to contact us in the future if we can be of assistance.

  4. I wanna get a qote for a chrome paint job on my 2006 ford mustang it has a dent on the back driver side fender not big though its a little oval shape dent and has paint peeling off the back bumber and little bubles under the paint on the hood thank you.

    1. Angel, thanks for looking to our business to work on your Mustang. Unfortunately, we are not able to assist with a 2006 model. While we do have a paint and body department, we are a restoration/hot rod shop and focus on 1973 and older models. If you would like a referral to a local shop that can handle this for you, please let us know, and feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance in the future.

  5. I’m wanting to paint a 2005 nissan altima white and install a new body kit and have a new custom carbon fiber hood installed. How much would that be?

    1. Johnny, we appreciate your looking to our business for your project needs. Unfortunately, we are not able to assist you with your 2005. We are a restoration/hot rod shop and, while we have a paint and body department, we focus on 1973 and older models. We have sent you an email with a referral to a local shop that should be able to handle it for you. Thanks and please let us know if we can be of assistance in the future.

  6. Hi Ive got a new 245″ rear engine dragster chassis is already powder coated looking for someone to paint body it is aluminum and never had paint on it

    1. Hi Bruce, thanks for your inquiry. The labor required for a paint job can vary quite a bit, especially if any panels need to be straightened or there are to be any stripes or graphics added to the paint scheme. All work here is done by the hour and materials are not included in the hourly rate. If you are available to call or visit the shop, we’d be happy to discuss your project, and it would help us to be on the same page about what you are needing done. Thanks and look forward to speaking with you.

  7. I have 69 ford bronco needing to be blasted and primed so that I can replace the rusted floors , it is off the frame and ready for the flip stand
    the frount finders are removed and the hood but they to need to be blasted and primed. could you give me an estimate

    1. Hi Doug, thanks for your inquiry. Blasting is charged out by the hour, and priming by time and materials. There are several variables that can affect labor time; for example, are you wanting to blast just the shell, less the floors, fenders and hood? Is it in original paint? Is there any undercoating or body filer? If you could give us a call for a quick Q&A, we can give you a ballpark idea of what it would take.

  8. Hello NTC,

    I have a ’66 Nova I have been working on for years now. I moved to Germany for a few years and returned back last year and now I want to start back working on the car. My goal now is not to complete the car 100%. I want to clean up all the rust powder coat few items and get it to a rolling chassis and hopefully someone else may find this project interesting enough to complete it. Currently I have removed the Mustang II front clip and it needs media blasting and powder coated.

    1. Mr. Mays, we appreciate your looking to our business for your project needs. The first step would be media blasting to remove all rust; from that point, we can assess what needs to be done to restore it properly. The vehicle will need to be completely torn down and mounted on the rotisserie in order to blast. If there is further tear down needed beyond removing the front clip, we can handle it here, or if you prefer to save on labor, you can tear it down and bring it to us. Please give us a call at your convenience so we can go over some additional questions and get you scheduled in.
