Are all auto body shops created equal?

Jeep Restoration Shop Florida at Palm Beach Customs

Are all auto body shops created equal ?


This is a good story of a Jeep CJ-7 total frame-off restoration done in our auto body shop at Palm Beach Customs. The customer, Ann (real name), is a real cool girl - she runs her own small business serving Lee County with her own construction company.

Ann is a dedicated CJ fan – so this was going to be a fun project.  We dismantled the Jeep and did a complete assessment of the parts needed for the job and we ordered all new sheet metal to get the project started.

Choosing Your Auto Body Shop...


 

When choosing your auto body shop for a project like this you need to be careful because not every body shop is capable of doing a ground up restoration – it takes a different mindset.

 

 

Then, most of the collision auto body shops are all about the numbers – how fast a task can be completed this is important in the bottom line, but a much different approach is used when doing a frame off restoration.  It’s more about procedures and quality rather than “how soon can this be done?” I’m sure you get my point

 


 

Everything on the body we prepped, sanded, and replaced with new metal where it was needed. The frame needed new perches, new body mounts, complete stripping, and then undercoating. It’s interesting to see that when we were cutting out and cleaning up any previous work (30 plus years old) you realize how many hands have been in the pudding before you.

Our auto body shop is one of the few that provides a spray on bedliner service and we get tons of Jeeps in, as well as the pick-up truck beds, boats, and trailers. CJ-7 Jeep

 

That was great for this particular jeep because we sprayed the complete underside of the body tub, then flipped it over and sprayed liner into the passenger compartment, which sealed it up nice. All the body parts were epoxy primed, filled, and block sanded.

 

An all new windshield frame with windshield and new gaskets were also put on to replace the older parts.

The client chose a beautiful House of Kolor paint – Kandy Tangerine for her color. We applied the nova orange ground coat before the tangerine – along with many final coats of high solids clear to finish it off.
