(Just an FYI, the pictures are in chronological order so the newest will be at the top! )

After paint and the bed liner, this CJ5 Jeep is ready for the final buff! 


Time for the reveal! Here we are taking the tape and paper off the Jeep after applying the spray on bedliner. You can never have enough - seriously.





This 1980 CJ-5 restoration is ready for the spray on bed liner. We always suggest going with this option for the CJ Jeeps because it protects the tub and is easy to wash out after a day in the elements 🙂

New head light lenses and bezels have been put on after we painted the grill. We also installed the new fender flares, the park lights, bliner lights, and other pieces that could go on.

Below is the Windshield cowl going on to the bottom of the CJ5 Jeep window frame before we mount it to the Jeep. A note to our DIY Jeepers - the new rubber will always make it a little difficult to screw the windsheild back onto the body... So make sure you have a few people who can pull down on the windshield while the other gets the screws into place!

The windshield is almost ready to go on with new glass from Accurate Auto Glass, visors, rear view mirror, and weatherstripping.

Once the CJ5 Jeep was dry we moved it back into the prep bay so that we could put on the hood tie downs, lights, and flares. 


The name of this awesome paint color is "Forest Green Metallic"... pictures and fluorescent lights just don't do it justice. Can't wait to see it in the sun!

Here's the Jeep ready for paint in our prep bay - it has been sanded down and primed with Valspar black primer. The taped off, wiped down with "wax and grease" remover, and then gone over with a tac rag.

We taped up the inside even though we are going to shoot a spray on bed liner later because it keeps any dust from kicking up - a little extra effort here saves a lot of time on the other end.

All the little parts get repainted or replaced as well - we've got seat brackets, license plate bracket, the jack, and we even do the screws

Before painting the tub, we painted the inner fenders, firewall, and grill support...

New BF Goodrich All Terrain tires have been mounted and balanced onto the original rims that we cleaned up and painted black. These are great tires for the Jeeper who wants to hit the pavement and something off the beaten path every once in a while. 


BFG KO2s Tires 33x12.5



You can see that we steam cleaned and undercoated under this CJ5 Jeep - and this was a phenomenally clean Jeep. We just went "WOW" once we started taking it apart  because some of the pieces still looked almost new!

Basic Tips for Classic and Muscle Car Care [from our Shop of Muscle Car Restoration Near Naples Florida]

Auto Body TipsJune 2, 20170 Comment

6 tips for classic and muscle car care for beginners from our shop for muscle car restoration near naples florida



Below you’ll find some tips that might seem a little basic for an experienced classic or muscle car owner, but for beginners, we hope they’ll be helpful as sometimes these things are overlooked. 


Owning a classic muscle car is a point of pride, and so you should do everything you can in order to keep it in the best shape possible.



Classic muscle cars are different than their newer counterparts, and as such, they have different requirements when it comes to taking care of them. While the things you need to do for your specific car will vary there are some basic, simple tips that apply for all classic and muscle car care.









After spending time and a small fortune investing in a classic car, the next thing that you have to make sure of is that the car is properly cared for. If you are a real car enthusiast, you will feel the commitment and responsibilities that you owe these classic cars. You have to look after your car to make sure that it are going to last for a long time and the value won't diminish through the years.



So what do you have to do as a responsible owner to look after your classic muscle car?



Here are tips to care for your classic muscle car:




People buy classic muscles cars not only for how they run, but for how they look. Owning a muscle car that looks old and rusted is missing the point. So if you are going to own a muscle car, you should take the opportunity to give it a good detailing.



Give it a good washing – including underneath – and then apply a coat of wax after a buff. You want your car to look its best. A thorogh detailing takes a bit of skill, time, and elbow grease but it's worth it.


Watch this video for a pre-buff tip that will save you clean-up time 🙂





Classic Muscle cars are not meant to be in extreme weather. If the temperatures near you get very hot, or very cold, you will want to get your car away from them.



Storing your car in a garage is the best way to keep it away from the elements, and out of direct sunlight.




Who knows, maybe your car will end up like this 1969 Corvette!





If the temperatures are going to be fine, and you are able to store your car outdoors, you will still want to get a good cover for it. Don’t allow the wind and sunlight to damage your car by getting soft cotton, or other recommended cover.



If you don’t plan on driving the car for a while, it is a good idea to open up the windows underneath the cover to allow for better air circulation. Cover your car each time you are done with it to protect it from any debris that may be flying around.



muscle car restoration shop near naples






As a new classic/muscle car owner, you might be tempted to save a little bit of money by buying or using parts of less quality. While we always want you to look for the best deal - at Palm Beach Customs we never use an untrustworthy brand.


Try to stick with Made in USA, well-known brands (like Edlebrock for engine and carb), and reproduction parts licensed by Ford, GM, or Mopar.


Depending on your car, some parts may be hard to come by and so the cost skyrockets - but don't be shocked. Make sure to do your research and always choose quality over quantity. 



muscle car care tips for beginners naples florida






Lastly, it is important that you take your car out for a regular drive. You do not want your car sitting for too long, or you could experience some problems. A quick 30-minute drive each month is probably enough to ensure that your car does not corrode and that the fluids remain okay.



If you are unable to find the time to drive it, you should at least start your car a few times a month and allow it to run for a few minutes.






Classic and Muscle cars can be great to own, but only if you take proper care of them. This means you have to have a little pride in your car! But you wouldn't be here if you didn't, would you 🙂





Using the tips mentioned above you should be able to keep your car looking great, and driving well too.


While these methods certainly won’t prevent your car from breaking, and they won’t prevent every issue, they are a good start when it comes to caring for your muscle and classic car.

How to Keep Rust from Attacking Your Classic Car

Hate Rust? Here’s How to Keep Your Classic Car from Rusting


If you’re a classic car lover then this article should help you…


Unlike many of the new cars in production currently, some of which have the bodies and metal parts dipped a zinc-coating or anti-corrosion primers… One of the best car manufacturers out there for protecting the bodies is Porsche. They were way ahead of the curve.


Unfortunately the classic and muscle cars, when they were built back in the day by the Big 3, they used very little sealer and virtually no paint on the undersides.


Below is how to keep your envy-inspiring dream machine from, slowly but surely, turning into a rust bucket:



First of all, if you are just building and restoring a car, then you are going to be able to take different steps than someone who already owns a complete car.



These steps are if you are building a car and what to do as you are building it to prevent it from rusting away due to moisture.


Below you will see my weapons in the war against rust when I restore a classic or muscle car:



  • PPG DP90 Epoxy

DP90 Is the first step in how to keep your classic car rust free


PPG makes an awesome product that has been out for a long time. When we do media blasting on the frames and the underside of the bodies, DP90 is a nice Epoxy Primer that comes in black which is awesome for the chassis and steel bodies. This would be my first line of defense. Of course then at that point, it will be refinished in whatever color we are shooting the chassis and undersides.


how to keep rust from attacking your classic car

  • Debeer Primer

The Debeer Primer is the best I've seen in 34 years. We started using this primer about 10 years ago. What turned me onto it was that it was a very heavy, high-build primer that came in black, white, and buff. Most high-end automotive finish paint companies don't offer high-solids urethane black primer (which is absolutely necessary if you plan on having your high-end job laser straight after body work).


  • 3M Bare Metal Seam Sealer & 3M Heavy Bodied Seam Sealer



The 3M bare metal seam sealer is, believe it or not, on the 64-70 Ford Mustangs and the 67-69 Camaros, the factory did horrible with sealing the cars. This let water come in from the inside and from underneath. We use the 3M bare metal seam sealer in certain areas and then we use the heavy bodied seam sealer where were are filling big voids.


  • RusFre (brand) Clear Inner Panel Undercoating

This is really good stuff to shoot inside:

  • Inner panels
  • Doors
  • Inside Quarter Panels
  • Inner Front Fenders
  • Inside Wheel Wells
  • Inside Rocker Panels
  • Even Inside Frame Rails


This is basically like the old war days when they used to shoot the cosmoline on the military Jeeps so that they wouldn't rust on the transport ships overseas.



Pay Careful Attention to Underside and Wheel Areas.


Due to the accumulation of mud, sand, road salt, and everything else on the road - rust is likely to target your classic car’s underside and wheel areas. Pay special attention to these spots.


Also, be careful when using a high-pressure washer, as these can remove the protective under seal.


We suggest rinsing out your cars when you get them dirty and make sure to keep dirt out of the wheel wells. You can even use a blow-gun to blow-dry the car when you're done to remove the water from behind the stainless moldings and whatnot.



I'm sure everyone has heard of the Mother's Spray mist where if the cars not dirty just give it a little mist and wipe it down. This keeps your car dry.

The smartest and best way you can keep your classic car looking and running beautifully for years to come is by befriending with a classic car restoration specialist in Florida.


You’ll get the expert advice you need to keep rust and other threats at bay.
