Any Builders around Dallas

I would like to visit a few builders in my area and see what kind of quality they produce. I will be needing a IFS installed as soon as my frame and sheetmetal has been blasted.

Chevy,

Try "Southwest Paint and Body" in Lewisville, TX.

I bought a set of reproduction '41 Willys headlight assemblies from them via eBay. Since I work in Richardson, I requested to do a "local pickup".

Until I went over to the shop, I did not realize that they are in fact a "Rod and Custom" shop, not a ding and dent repair (no offense intended).

"Minnie" (I think that she is the owner's wife) was kind enough to show me around the shop and some of the "works in progress". These guys do it "all except upholstery and charging the AC" according to her. I saw some FANTASTIC work (including a beautiful frame - I forget what she said that it was for) that they have done and are/or doing.

There is a guy on the Stovebolt.com site with the handle "coilover" who has a shop in the Plano area. Place a query there and see if he can help you out.
