Even the best new speakers cause speaker panel distortion. Home audio speakers typically come in well crafted, heavy boxes to eliminate this distortion - a solution that is impossible (or at least impractical) in your car. For your car, Dynamat is the solution. Applying Dynamat to the panels surrounding your speakers eliminates speaker panel distortion by transforming the flimsy sheet metal into a solid non-resonant baffle.

Restore A Tag was started  after I starting my own personal license plate collection. The antique license plates that I found contained rust, dents, dimples, extra holes, peeling paint, and more. In the beginning, I sent some plates out for restoration – and was very disappointed in the results. As a metal fabricator by trade and a perfectionist at heart, I embarked on developing a process to fully restore license plates to their original - if not better - quality.  See what we can do for you.

We are very pleased to have the great folks from Nu Relics Power Windows onboard with us.  Earl Cornelius has built Street Rods for over 40 years. During these years, he wanted power windows that were easy to install and worked properly - keeping the window level and straight as it went up and down. As a result, he developed a set of power windows for his 1940 Ford using the original manual regulator as the base for the power window. It was not long before his friends wanted these wonderful power windows for their cars too. Thus the establishment of Nu-Relics.   They now have over 300 models !
