About Us

The Metal Surgeon has a car restoration workshop located in Denver, Colorado that contains equipment and skilled professionals necessary for a complete ‘frame off’ car or truck restoration.

Our Denver restoration shop does work on classic cars, vintage cars, hot rods, street rods, trucks, muscle cars, European sports cars (Porsche), even bicycles and motorcycles. We work on any make and model older than 1980. We have experience creating factory-correct restos, hot rods, and resto-mods!

We would like to help with your restoration project by providing complete service from disassembly, media blasting, metalwork, fabrication, bodywork, through paint and assembly, or just metalwork and fabrication.

We offer the following classic car restoration services:

Metal panel fabrication – aluminum and steel

  • Custom or ‘one-off’ panels
  • Rivet work, solid riveting aluminum, copper, steel, etc.
  • Complete car body build (body in white) in aluminum or steel
  • Custom shape work
  • Recreating or copying an original panel (for those panels/fenders/etc that you cannot buy reproductions). For this service, we’ll need a panel to copy, so from a left fender we can create a right, or we can use one you have that is too far gone.


  • AC/DC TIG welding (aluminum or steel)
  • Oxygen acetylene gas welding
  • MIG welding


  • We work with several vendors who can provide different levels of finish, tailored to your unique project. As well as different specialties such as Porsche factory correct finishes.

Mechanical and Electrical work

  • All chassis mechanical work – brake/suspension conversions and rebuilds
  • Electrical – installation of a new harness or problem solving
  • Full custom electrical features – door poppers, reverse cameras, heating, and AC systems, radios, GPS, anti-theft systems, and more
  • Air ride installation – including tanks, bags, sensors, compressor
  • Engine swaps – LS motor, Coyote motor, Chevy 350

Precision Body/ Metal Finishing

  • Metal finishing – eliminate body filler and rescue original panels
  • Lead work – we have over 20 years of experience in lead loading

Custom car restoration services

If you can imagine it, we can build it out of metal. This is a short list of custom fabrications:

Project Management

Whether your vintage car is a daily driver or a show-quality concourse vehicle, we can cater to your car restoration budget.

We like to keep our clients informed of every step that is taken on their cars. Our primary goal is to get your classic car repaired or customized in line with your vision. Regular assessments and appraisals of the agreed work remaining will take place at the interval you feel comfortable with. Clients are always welcome to drop by the shop and take a look.


The shop rate is $95/hour. Materials and parts that we purchase are marked up 15%.

Clients are invoiced every two weeks. Each invoice is detailed explaining every task undertaken and performed. Invoices are accompanied by photos documenting work completed. Photos are taken daily for each project.
