FPM Metals is a leader in the production and development of "Pattern Polished Metals" for automotive and architectural applications. Dashboards and firewalls of the 1930's were common places where this finishing style could be found.


FPM has duplicated numerous pieces for the restoration of such marques as Duesenberg and Bugatti. FPM Metals has also been proudly displayed at such prestigious automotive events as the Geneva Auto Show and Pebble Beach Conquers. They now have brought this once tedious process of engine turning into the 21st century and expanded on it to include an inspiring array of patterns for your auto or show room applications.

All engine turned patterns are produced in either aluminum or stainless steel. Thickness is available in .030" or .063" in either metal. Sheet size can be as large as 48" wide and 96" long depending on the pattern selected. As a rule of thumb the larger the piece required the larger the pattern you may want to consider. For example a dash insert would normally use our DGL-50 pattern. While a fire wall for a T-roadster would look great with a DGL-100 or DGL-150 pattern. FPM Metals can supply engine turned polished metal in sheet form, polished dash inserts or custom make pieces to fit your application. Please click on one of our standard pattern designs.
