Jeff will be happy to talk with you about your Muscle Rod Shop build and will provide you with plenty of information regarding the process, how your expectations and desires will be met, and how to get the process started.
We may be able to accomodate you right away, but there may be a delay as current projects are moved through their stages and space for a new project is created.
Your project car does not need to be nice. We work with everything from clean restos to junkyard scrap heaps. Our rust repair skills are extraordinary. There are no parts we have not replaced or repaired.
Prior to beginning your project, we will come to an agreement of the time and costs involved. We will understand your vision for the car. We will discuss powertrains, body mods, what the look-and-feel of the car is to be and what your performance and driving expectations are. We can have a rendering created to help nail the look. However, renderings are at the discretion of our consulting artist, who is not an employee of this shop.
We follow a pay-as-we-perform business model by creating an invoice at the end of each month for time and materials. No big down payments. The more we're able to do in a month, based on your financial comfort level, the faster we will be able to get the build completed. However, we do have several projects under way at all times... shop resources need to be shared.
Additionally, we'll create a schedule for the procurement of parts so that come reassembly, we have the necessary items ready to go, saving you time and money. We will work to provide you with a fabrication schedule, a paint schedule, and a reassembly schedule, and provide all preparation and support for coordination with an interior shop should your project call for work beyond our in-house services.
By entrusting your dreams to Muscle Rod Shop, you are going with one of the most creative shops in the world. When it comes to widebody builds, we are the innovators and the leaders. This comes from an understanding of design, flow and stance, and we avoid the tacky mods that so many builders these days can't seem to steer away from. Our creedo has always been to Respect the Original Design, but enhance it, make it exotic, sleek, and more modern. Too much, and you end up with a car thats cool for maybe a year or two, but which quickly becomes dated and obsolete as trends change.
Above all, we're not here to build extremely expensive over-the-top show queens. We want you to DRIVE. This is your toy - one to play with. Hammer it. Have some fun. And feel that way-cool feeling knowing that as you cruise the highways or pull into shows, you are king, and being the king is cool.
