Below is a collection of my latest auto restoration projects in Los Angeles. After I finish a project, I move the entire photo gallery and description over to my portfolio so you can see the final BEFORE versus AFTER pictures.

I usually don't get many requests to restore American muscle cars from the late 1960s and early 1970s, but the owner of this 1967 Chevy Camaro 2+2 liked my portfolio and asked for my help.
He hasn't decided on all the interior upholstery customizations yet, except for a red stripe down the middle of black leather seats and red stitching with the black leather dash.
I'm currently reupholstering another 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4. However what makes this project unique is that this four cam Berlinetta (chassis #10311) is one of about 17-19 cars built with an all alloy body; all other 275 GTB/4s were steel-bodied. As a result, this version is extremely desirable by collectors and commands a premium.
In 2008, it was offered for sale by Bonhams at the Quail Lodge. It was not sold. To read the complete history, click here.
Today the car has been repainted in racing red (Rossa Corsa). I have been tasked to reupholster the entire interior in a custom made tan leather.
Once finished, it will be shipped to the owner's estate in Ohio where it will join his collection of rare Ferraris.
This 1970 Mercedes 280SL convertible arrived a couple weeks ago. The body will be repainted in light grey. The interior will be updated in the original blue color.
This 1974 Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster will be undergoing a full interior restoration.
