Who We Are

Our business started back in 1978 when Bob Skrip opened Skrip’s AutoBody. We became one of the leading collision repair facilities in our area, constantly updating our equipment, and getting the training necessary to meet with the ever changing vehicles as they’re produced. Our skilled craftsmanship would bring in collector cars from time to time where we could broaden our skills to the exacting standards of the restoration world. As restorations became a larger part of our business the decision was made to open a location specifically-designed to handle the demanding requirements of classic restorations and resto-mod building.

We have a passion for the old ways and old world craftsmanship. The best part is that we use our own two hands to mold the quality back into your prized automobile. No project is too small or too big. If you are looking for quality work for your collector car or resto-mod, give us a call. Let us get our hands on your project.
