Classic Investments Opens Brand New, State-of-the-Art Paint and Body Facility; Expose in “Parts and People” Magazine
In 2015, Stephen Bell, owner of Classic Investments, purchased a 7,600sqft industrial building opposite to the existing facility at 3940 S. Mariposa St.
Formerly the home of a wood-working shop, Stephen immediately set to work planning the rehabilitation of the building to meet the needs of his expanding restoration business. Within a year, Classic Investments boasted a brand new showroom; beautifully lit and featuring some of our finest inventory and completed projects awaiting their delivery.
A second part of the building was then still home to a wholesale clothing outlet who’s lease was soon to expire. Once they had vacated the property, demolition began to make way for a dedicated paint and body facility. Following the extensive renovation, a state-of-the-art Garmat Zephyr, triple downdraft paint booth was ready for its first run. The attached –though fully isolated– body shop can accommodate 4 cars; including the wash-bay.
The Classic Investments paint works is thoughtfully designed to save time and money in a number of ways: Renting paint booths can be expensive, slow progress by requiring transportation and encountering scheduling delays, and increase the potential for mistakes. Quality control can suffer as well under varying conditions. Our new facility is complete with a vast number of LED lights; not only to see clearly ANY flaw in the body work or contamination of surfaces, but also to greatly reduce energy consumption. The brand new Mattei rotary vane compressor is also much more efficient, quieter and maintenance friendly, and reduces the potential for water contamination in the lines – which are fitted with redundant desiccant filter/dryers.
This quarter-million dollar facility is now fully operational and has left room for expansion of the existing metal shop and detail bay in the original 8,000sqft shop at 3940 S. Mariposa St. It is our home base for all things paint-and-body and additionally can be made available to rent for the discerning painter. We are always happy to answer questions, and are available M-F, 8am-5pm Mountain Time. As always, feel free to Contact Us.
