Every month I receive multiple requests regarding companies I trust to have Bronco work done. Because of the number of requests I decided to add a page containing companies I have used in the past. These companies all have one thing in common. They all do outstanding work. Although I recommend these companies, I want you to do your own research to see if these places are right for your project. I receive no compensation for my endorsement but can certify that each and every one of these companies I have done business with in the past and that I was very happy with their products or service. Each one of these shops is located in the Ventura County area.

Note: I have had several vehicles painted at Hub Auto Body and I am very happy with the work. What impressed me the most is that instead of hiding damaged metal and rust using Bondo, they cut and replace the metal, then skim coat to match. Truly outstanding work. I guess that is why so many people take their restoration vehicles and hot rods to Hub for paint.

Note: I have had 3 motors and heads rebuild by this shop. Also, many of my fellow hot rod and 4X4 friends in Ventura County had work done there as well and overall were very happy. The turn around time is a little long (3 weeks) but I'm usually not in a hurry to throw the motor back in as I do usually bigger projects. Overall I a very happy with the work and never had a problem with my motors.
