SLC Customer - 1955 Ford F-100
Read More
I have always wanted to own a classic Ford truck but had no idea where to start? So after looking around at several hot rod shops I decided to take my vision to Straight Line Customs. I met with Dan and right away knew this was the right place for me. Dan not only helped me find a 1955 Ford F-100, he drove with me 4 hours to pick it up. I had SLC do a complete restoration on the truck the way I wanted plus add a few surprise custom touches that went above and beyond what I had expected! My entire experience from start to finish was great and I would highly recommend SLC. -- Adam Paulson- Owner

We bought our 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette in Boston off Craig’s list and bought it sight unseen. We soon realized it was going to need some TLC to bring it back it to the head turn is once was. We started looking around for customs shops and soon found Straight Line Customs. After a few conversations with Dan, we soon knew we had found the right guy to trust our Corvette with. After listening to what we wanted done, and him going over everything with us, we made the decision to have him do the work on our toy. The process went smoothly, the communication was excellent and it turned out fantastic. Straight Line will be the only place we take the car if we need custom work done. Thanks Dan and Straight Line for bringing our Corvette back to the head turn it once was. -- Sincerely, Don and Jolene Ramm- Owners

We took our 2012 Mustang Shelby GT500 to Dan at Straight Line Customs with a vision of customizing it to set it apart from other Mustang’s. We wanted a sophisticated and powerful look when complete. What Dan produced was beyond expectations. He kept the Shelby baseline look while adding edge. We are extremely happy with the work Dan has produced. The work was completed in a timely manner and his pricing was very competitive. We HIGHLY recommend Dan and his team at Straight Line Customs for any automotive project. Dan is an artisan of his craft and we look forward to showing it off in Las Vegas at the Mustang's 50th Birthday Celebration on April 17, 2014 as well as many other shows. -- Thank you, Jerry & Khris Chapman- Owners
SLC Customer - 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback & 1956 Ford F-100

I’ve known Danny for a long time. Lucky for me our paths crossed a long time ago, me being a car guy but not having the capabilities or talent to work on them. This is where Danny steps in. Danny has performed and done work on over 12 of my company vehicles and has done an outstanding job. He’s restored vehicles for me, from rebuilding motors to fixing rear ends to everything in between. He has built me a killer 1966 Mustang Fastback that I get compliments on everywhere I go. Just recently he has built me a 1956 Ford F100 dream truck in a 6-month period. From the amazing black paint job to the awesome interior. This truck shows top notch workmanship. Every time I walk past this truck in my shop it puts a smile on my face. If you’re looking to have work done on your vehicle, Danny will have both you and your vehicle’s best interest in mind. Danny really will make your dreams become a reality. Good Luck with your future projects. -- Russell Sobiech- Owner

I came to Straight Line Customs to discuss a restoration on my 1970 Camaro Z28. They were thorough in talking with me about my expectations were and their process of restoration. The work is top notch and meticulous. I handled the installation of the wiring, motor, transmission, and interior myself. They worked with me to make sure the transition between my responsibility and the shop's was handled efficiently. The car was finished in 2 years. I have received MANY compliments on the quality of the paint and finish as well as the body gaps and body lines that flow perfectly. Three trophies so far, including a Best of Show at the Car Queenz Show in Burnsville last summer. I am very pleased with the final product and recommend to anyone in need of body work or full restorations.

Straight Line Customs took on my disassemble 1970 dodge Charger Project in late August of 2014. They delivered it back to me mid November of 2014. The work performed was body stiffening, reassembly of the suspension, fitment of all sheet metal, and complete body and paint inside, bottom and outside. The finish is outstanding, and body fit perfect. The edges of the painted on graphics clean and sharp. They spent a lot of time custom mixing and painting test panels, as I wanted a pearl version of the stock color. All in all I am very pleased with the crew. They are top notch craftsmen. I consider working with them the high point of my build.

Dan and his team are very accurate in their assessment and quotations in doing the work needed (in my case a problem with a leaky rear main seal) They found a few other problems while working on my 67 Chevelle that they informed me about and quickly fixed. As I looked around in their shop, I quickly realized just how good these guys are in the restoration business. I have dealt with a few places similar to Straight line in the past and I can attest to Straight lines highly professional communications and work efforts. I plan to use them again, should I need work on my prized chevy.

I have a custom 1979 Camaro Z28 that needed an update, and that update was a Chevy LSX454 engine. I needed a shop that could do the entire install including engine, new fuel system from gas tank forward, computer with all wiring, and custom exhaust. Also, old fuel system and wiring for computer needed to go away. In the process of looking for a shop to do the work, Straight Line Customs kept coming up from parts vendors, as well as fellow "'car people" as a shop to check out. So I went there, was impressed, got an estimate, and they got the job. I am very happy that I chose to take my car to this shop. I worked directly with Dan, Scott and Rob - all were great to work with. They explained in detail what they were doing and any fabrication questions they had, they contacted me before doing the work so I knew what was happening during the entire process. Everything turned out perfect - especially the custom exhaust. Tucking up a 3 inch exhaust system - nice and tight on a lowered Camaro - truly a thing of beauty. Their work is much appreciated. This is my new "go to" shop, as I will going to them for additional work in the future.
