WHAT WE DO

If you understand the term “Metalhead” is a really good thing then we’re probably the automotive shop you’ve been looking for since you bought your first car. Our name comes from a conversation our owner was having over what it is that we do at the shop, and to make things easy for the “tech guys” to understand he finally said: “It’s easy, Metal is Metal and if somebody has a need to maintain it, repair it, restore it or give it a facelift we can do it.” Our automotive area is not your typical corner garage with a tool chest and a lift. Sure we can and do all the scheduled maintenance on cars and truck but that’s were everybody else stops. We’re the guys that your current mechanic refers to when he says: “I’ll have to send this out to have it done right.” You can think of us as the “Do Right”, Did Right and Done Right” guys. You won’t find a fancy waiting room or mints on the counter but you will find over 70 years of experience in making sure the jobs were done right!

But your job is easy… just bring your problem to us and PROBLEM SOLVED!

Our fab shop also get’s call’s for fancy or so called decorative items for various different locations, such as restaurants , dinner’s, garages, retail stores, and so on. Some ask for a fancy sign frame, some may ask for a stand to keep the microwave off the counter, other’s may want a net around their fish pond. Last year we even had to make an aluminum swordfish for the front of a truck. So if you have and idea of something different, and your having trouble finding someone to build it for you, just give us a call.

Our shop has been in the welding, Automotive, Marine and General Business of Metal for the past 40 years. Over that period of time we have accumulated items some pertaining to our business and some which may not, but whatever the case may be, they are available for purchase. We will be posting them periodically, so take a look once or twice a week to see if any of the item’s are of your interest.

And talk about unique… we even built our own machine that uses high pressure water and an aggregate mix that will “sand blast” anything without harming the metal surface.
