TRADE MATCHING SETS OF CALIFORNIA BLACK PLATES FOR CREDIT TOWARDS A RESTORATION!!! ASK FOR DETAILS.
To be brief on some of my approach to repair, I do any metal repair needed to the plate(s) after blasting them clean of rust. I straighten out the edges and can seal holes. I can also remove denting and even replace small/medium-sized pieces. Cracks and holes are repaired if present. The back of the plate(s) are refinished to new condition too. Surface prep is key for a smooth finish. The lettering is smooth, consistent and has an original look, no brush marks.
I do accept most state or country, metal embossed plates from 1903-1980. I have accurate information for correct colors on all states. Premium grade automotive paints carry out the job, not some cheap, rattle-can spray paint from your local hardware store.
I DO NOT MAKE DUPLICATE PLATES!
I DO NOT ALTER MODERN PLATES TO LOOK VINTAGE!
The charge is $100 for a complete restoration of a single plate. This includes motorcycle plates too. Identical pairs are $195. These prices include light metalwork. Shipping is $10 in the U.S.
Extra holes/cracks and extensive pitting/denting costs extra but are not a problem to fix. Just ask for an estimate. Please note: Plates with excessive damages can possibly take up to six extra weeks to complete.
Canadian orders add $25 to cover shipping (standard size plates).
CURRENT COMPLETION TIME IS 8-12 WEEKS
