Every place we take the car, it makes a huge impact. Going out to dinner draws crowds to the parking lot. The honesty, integrity, and skills are all top notch. From the owner down to the builders, each person was a pleasure to work with. When I dealt with each employee, it was like they owned the project. They are all committed, responsible and skilled. Thanks guys.
Well you guys really did it - a restoration worthy of an AACA First Junior And Senior, both in the same year!
Thank you for keeping me on the road.
Thank you for all the hard work on my NKI.
In 2011 we had taken our 1990 Ford Mustang to have interior restoration work done which includes front and rear seat covers, replace floor carpet, replace elastic on door panel pockets, and recover door panel inserts. He also replaced our rear window motor. All was completed in a timely matter and within the quote they had given us. Paul also kept us informed by e-mailing as to the status of the work in progress. We were very satisfied and pleased with the workmanship and professionalism in completing our project. We would highly recommend Metropolitan Restoration! We get many complements regarding the appearance of our car.
It is easy for me to give the folks at Metropolitan Restoration the highest of accolades. Their work is to perfection and is driven by their love of the cars they are working on. I brought them my Crosley Hot Shot, hardly a Metropolitan, and they went beyond my expectations in the restoration. I'd love to bring them a Stanley Steamer!!!
I had a 1954 F100 pickup truck that developed a loud banging noise inside of the engine block one evening. I called MRS, Inc and they came and picked it up. The problem was in the restoration the previous owner did. They assembled some internal parts incorrectly which lead to the breakage of these parts. MRS, Inc quickly diagnosed the situation and emailed me pictures along with a solution. I didn't have to leave work to deal with the issues. They gave me an accurate quote to repair the damage. After the repair was completed they checked the other side of the engine block for similar assembly faults. After they completed the repairs, other small issues such as timing, carb. rebuild, exhaust system replacement, etc were done to the truck. A year later they replaced the steering column with a rebuilt one and fabricated an oil filter seating flange as the one on the truck was too thin and allowed oil leakage. The truck has been running flawlessly ever since.
Paul and his team of very qualified mechanics and restoration experts worked on my 1958 Nash Metropolitan in 2012. The car was in pretty good cosmetic condition but the mechanics needed considerable work. All of it was performed professionally and at a fair price. The scope of the project and changes to it were communicated clearly and on a timely basis. I would recommend MRS with hesitation.
Overall experience with the Reeder family has been very positive. Excellent body restoration on my metropolitan. Communicating with them is easy. They always answer all questions, give good advice, and return all phone calls. Parts department is well stocked with high quality parts, and are shipped immediately.
I've had a non-running Metropolitan for a few years. When I decided to get it repaired, the choice was easy. "Metropolitan Restoration Service" did an excellent job from start to finish. I was in continuous contact throughout the process and saw many pictures of the progress. I highly recommend their services.
