I’m an old car nut and I enjoy refurbishing them. A few I will keep, but must I will sell after a season of driving them and going to car shows.
A common problem that I have is that finding the old parts for replacement that are no longer made can be very difficult. I found Protomatic and they were able to machine the parts that I was looking for with no problem at all.
This last project I had was just the worst. I had so many problems locating the refurbished parts. I finally almost got it done until things get even worse than before. I was looking for these engine brackets and I just couldn’t find ones that fit anywhere. I looked for probably three months online and I called a bunch of people that I’d done business with in the past, but I didn’t have luck at all. I even spent hours in my local scrap yards trying to find a replacement part.
Finally, I tried calling around to machine shops, and I called lots of them. I found Protomatic sort of by chance I guess. I talked to them and sure enough, they were about to machine the brackets that I needed without much trouble at all. Since then I’ve referred a lot of my buddies to the same company, and they’ll all been happy with the way it worked out.
Programmatic is able to reverse engineer the parts that I need to fit my exact specifications. They are a lifesaver when it comes to manufacturing custom vintage auto parts and they are very easy to work with.
