Frame off restoration

The ultimate process of creating an exceptional vehicle restoration.  The body comes off the vehicle to allow for painstaking inspection, repair, and detail.  The frame is measured for correct specifications. The body is reassembled on the frame to repair, sand, prep, seal and fit every panel. Special attention is paid to maintaining correct body gaps.  The body comes back off the frame for final preparation and paint.  Then final reassembly.
