It's probably pretty obvious if you've looked at our site, that we are first and foremost your go-to for anything to do with muscle or classic car restoration in Florida.
But we also have a few more tricks up our sleeves (after 34 years you would hope so, right?). Palm Beach Customs also offers new replacement steel bodies and sheet metal for select classic and muscle cars.
These are the Tri-Five Chevy, 47-57 Chevy Trucks, 67-69 Camaro, 70 Chevelle and Challenger, 66-67 Nova, 65-70 Mustang, CJ-7 Jeep, and Art Morrison chassis.
The steel bodies are made by a Florida company and all the steel bodies are licensed by GM, Ford, Chrysler, or Mopar. We only work with reliable manufacturers so we can safely say that we sell and use products of excellent quality.
Palm Beach Customs offer something truly unique to our steel body customers!
When you purchase a steel body from us, you have 3 options to choose from:
This is for our customers who want to build from the bottom up themselves.
This second option allows our customers to get their steel body with a paint color of their choice. We use high-quality epoxy primers, base coats, and high-solid clears. This also includes a 3-stage wet sand and buff before delivery.
This option offers our clients a complete build where we work with you to bring your dream car to life. We do the engine, interior, chassis.... everything to make your steel body to life. See a turn key build for a Tri-Five here

Down Draft Paint Booth and Paint Mixing Room
This is my last spray booth install its a 28 ft by 14 ft Down Draft Bake Booth with 3 ” walls it will ramp up to 165 degrees with a 1.5 million direct fired gas heater you can really speed up the drying cycle .Normally we paint @ 80 degrees and with a variable speed Freak drive on the exhaust side you are able to adjust the flow of air movement as the filters get dirty on the exhaust side the operator can speed up the motor allowing for positive pressure at all times to keep dust from entering the booth .
This was the far best investment I made for the booth its called a Chisum air bag lift for painting it operates with a airbag so its safe for the spray booth environment it made painting full paint jobs a pleasure
hope you enjoyed the post on Down Draft Paint Booth and Paint Mixing Room

Your car is your life on the road.
Up-to-standard repair work of your vehicle is literally a life-saver. This is why the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) offers training programs for collision repair technicians.
Palm Beach Customs in Ft Myers is a ASE Certified Repair Shop, because John Russo, the owner and head technician holds the ASE Collision Repair Technician certification.
John Russo has earned a specialty certificate in Structural Analysis and Damage Repair, which qualifies him as an ASE Collision Repair Technician. Coupled with hands-on repair experience since 1980, you can be absolutely sure that your car will be treated with complete professionalism, and the repair job will be to a like-new level.
Thanks to this formal education and experience, your vehicle will be repaired to factory specifications. This means you will have the car back to a pre-crash geometry of the suspension, which ensures your car will not “pull” to the left or right so you won’t need to steer it back on track.
Also, you will be worry-free because the repair procedure, all the welding and body-work will be done according to factory specifications, ensuring that the vehicle is structurally as sound as it was before the crash.
So, don't hesitate.
Rest assured that your vehicle will be repaired to factory specifications (or better), and the paint job will be flawless, for pre-crash looks of your car.
