Specialty Metalshaping & Coachwork For The
Discerning Auto Collector & Restoration Industry


Services offered at Contour Metalshaping are specialty fabrication and metal shaping. At all times we strive to produce high quality panels and parts for the classic and vintage car collector.

Aside from the metal fabrication end of the shop, all coachwork is done in house. Coachwork (or ash framework as it’s often called) is the inner wood structure that is the skeleton for autobodies of prewar and some postwar cars. The wood shop is well equipped to handle all woodworking operations needed here at the shop where building wooden fixtures and station bucks are a regular task. The wooden substructure of these autos is the foundation for these beautiful bodies where correct body sweeps and symmetry is needed.

Styling clay is used for surface development and to render mock ups from time to time to aide in the development of station bucks for panel fabrication.

Contour Metalshaping also welcomes architectural projects and one-off concepts and ideas which can be rendered in clay or urethane foam for 3D mockups and prototypes.
