The "polished" build takes a restoration to the next level of cleanliness, clarity, and shine. By removing the rough edges, porous surfaces, and slight indentations we can bring a glow under your bonnet. The bodies of the carburetors are taken a step further to bring a brighter surface appearance and the brass parts are buffed; The suction chambers are spun on the lathe and wet sanded to over 1,000 grit and then buffed to a nearly mirror finish. For those looking to attain the "best in show" and "cleanest restoration" awards, and those looking for an eye catching piece in the engine bay.

We rarely take rushed or hurried work. Our process takes time and it is only fair to serve our customers in the order that the work requests arrive. We have a queue and we are working hard to make our way through this line. We keep our costs as low as possible so that we can provide the best service to you, our valued customers. Rushing a project results in increased costs and lowered quality of service.
Cost, Time, Quality. You can only pick two.
This is the Brit Carbs standard restoration level. A nicer-than-factory finish with freshly plated original hardware. Clean and durable finish that will hide years of wear and scratches without removing large amounts of material. This will have a soft satin appearance accented by the bright white of zinc plating on the ancillary steel hardware. Painted components will have two primer layers as well as a minimum of two top coats of color. We can also zinc plate or powder coat parts and components of any size.

The shop is ever growing and expanding. We now offer more services and hopefully, with more tooling and space we will be able to expand even further. That being said the Vapor Blasting service is available for nearly anything that will fit in the cabinet. We have enough room to safely blast just about anything up to the size of a cylinder head of 6 cylinder and manifolds. A new, bigger blast system is also in the works. We offer many services outside of carburetors, as listed here.
