Fantastic Restoration

With all the Shite flying around about resto shop problems, I thought some well deserved positive would be nice.

Take a look at what Mike and Chris do at North American Overland.



If you are looking for someone to give you a low ball estimate and then let your truck sit (or be driven under the influence) for years, these are not your guys.
They will charge you a fair price (read "too much" if you are a cheap ass) and you will need to take a ticket and get in line. That being said, I think too many folks are realizing that the faster and less expensive options are neither faster, nor less expensive and often come with an unexpected additional invoice from legal council.

Mike deserves all the positive feedback he can get... ultra nice and meticulous restorations, and a great guy as well. I'm not aware of many people more motivated than him

Yeah, I've heard nothing but great things about Sandone...though haven't had the pleasure to meet him in person yet (was hoping to at some events this past summer, but neither of us were in the same place at the same time). But his work quality (from what I've heard) is on par with ECR-ish.

Coincidentally I just had a customer pick up a bunch of parts to bring to Mike for a restoration.

Great guy, he does great work, I've been to his place many times, and have seen this truck in person, he set it up very nicely! He is always busy restoring trucks, so i am sure that speaks for itself.

yep - agreed...I saw his Series truck he did a couple years ago. It was inspirational when I did mine.
