Are you in need of having your Volkswagen chassis restored and not sure where to start? Our chassis shop has spent years removing the guesswork for the customer. Simply just drop off the stripped down chassis and let us give you back a beautiful, functioning foundation for your project that's built to suit your needs. We’ve developed a process that will make you feel comfortable that the foundation to your restoration is in the right hands, and is of the highest quality every single step of the way. Our goal is to not only produce a chassis that looks beautiful, but functions as it should and beyond all, safe. With our experience, collection of fixtures & machines we work very hard to provide high quality chassis work that is not only affordable but delivered with great customer service and lighting fast turn around times.

With chassis work there is no wait time to drop off and we are accepting drop offs at any time Monday-Friday 9am–6pm & Saturdays with appointments. Any chassis build, or repair whether it's small or large can be accommodated. Turn around time on stock chassis is typically two weeks or less but may vary as chassis are built in the order in which they are received.

Factory stock (Type1/Type 3/Ghia/Thing) Street car builds, Drag chassis builds, Shortened chassis for Manx/Dune buggy & 356 kit car applications are some of the builds we offer.

Frequently Asking Questions:

“I'm out of state but would like to have you restore my chassis, how do I get it to you?”

-It's not uncommon that we have chassis shipped to us for restoration. If you are unable to deliver the chassis then having a transportation company pick it up and bring it to us is your best bet. After we finish our part, and the chassis build/repairs are completed we will prep the chassis to be shipped back to you in the same manner it was delivered. For shipping we recommend starting with www.U-ship.com to see if there are any transport companies able to assist you with delivering your chassis to us.

“Do I need an appointment to drop my chassis off?”

-No, you do not. On chassis work we accept chassis without appointment and we build them in the order in which they are received. Average turnaround time on stock chassis restorations are less than two weeks from drop off.


“When I drop the chassis off to you, do I need to have all the parts?”

Although you can drop the parts off with the chassis if you’d like, No we do not need anything but the bare bones chassis. We will order all necessary parts and handle everything. We only use the best parts available to build our chassis.


“What is required of me when i drop the chassis off to your shop for restoration?”

-Depending on the year of your chassis, and the extent of the build we are going with we will need a deposit before beginning the work. If your chassis falls into the flat rate build category, we will take the flat rate labor cost, blasting and parts cost upfront before beginning any work.


“Should i remove my rusty pans”

No, please do not start removing your pan halves. We have a quick and effective system to remove and prefer to do it ourselves. Oftentimes customers have attempted to remove pan halves in the past and actually added more work for us.

“How should I prepare my chassis prior to drop off”

To keep the cost down and qualify for the flat rate labor cost we suggest you remove all bolt on components prior to drop off. Example, no suspension, no brake lines, no shift rod etc. Do not worry about cleaning grease or sludge off the chassis as that is included in the blasting/cleaning fee.

We will drop off and pick up your chassis from the media blaster/powder coater free of charge.





Metal work is the most important stage of every restoration as it is the foundation your vehicle is built on. It’s important that it is done once and done correctly. We have a passion for classic cars, many years of experience, and take pride in providing our customers with high-quality work in a timely manner. The final product is finished in bare metal so there is nothing to be hidden. We set ourselves apart with detailed work orders, outstanding communication, and countless photographs throughout the process to keep you up to date, involved and comfortable that your project is in the right hands. We are here to meet and exceed your expectations.
