MECHANICAL / SERVICE
Our services range from basic tune-ups, to hydraulic system repair to complete engine rebuilding. Automotive International’s master technicians have the deep expertise and understanding of how vintage and current era automobiles function and how to service them for optimal performance. Whether it is simple maintenance, a complete overhaul of any of a car’s systems, a rebuild of an engine or sorting the electrical systems, we have the expertise. We have the specialized tools and technology to allow us to service and/or repair all major systems of the cars. Through the years, we have learned what parts should be repaired or rebuilt versus those needing to be replaced. This provides maximum value to our clients. We would be honored to service your fine motor car.
BODY SHOP / RESTORATION / PRESERVATION / INTERIOR
We have a full service body shop with a state of the art paint both to service our Rolls Royce/Bentley clients. Our capabilities range from minor collision to complete frame off restoration. Whether your automobile is aluminum, metal, wood, or wood framing clad with aluminum or steel, we have the experience to repair and, as needed, reconstruct to the original design or customize to your preference. We are experts at spraying a variety of paint finishes such as lacquer, solvent or water borne paints to meet any client’s requirements. Our meticulous preparation and painting processes through final waxing provides each client’s automobile with a show quality finish. We have years of experience refinishing trim to its original luster, having chrome restored to concours quality, hand polishing aluminum and stainless and gently massaging an original trim piece to its proper original form. We would be honored to work on your prized automobile from the classic eras through today.
Our interior craftsmen can provide full service to bring your interior back to its original glory or custom fabricate upholstery and trim pieces. Whether leather repair and dying, or as intricate as refurbishing the complete interior from dash to carpet to headliner, we have the expertise. Through long standing relationships with providers of some of the best and most authentic materials in the world we can replicate original interiors.
We can also bring to life the original wood trim, often making the finish appear deeper with better grain quality than when the automobile was new. We can repair damage or just refinish as needed.
