All About Us
My name is Terry Steagall and I have been in business as Steagall Fabrication since 1997 doing plastic blast, paint and coating removal and sand blasting. Also, sheet metal shaping of antique auto parts and industrial prototype fabrication. I do all sorts of street rod work from small jobs to complete turn-key cars.
My background has been some sort of mechanical work all my life. My early years were general auto mechanical repair and cut and install auto glass, and a few years later, auto body and painting . I also worked in specialty shops (auto machine and transmissions shops).
In the 70's and 80's I did industrial machine repair and industrial electrical as well as machine design and building.
What We Do and How We Do It
Here at Steagall Fabrication we can do any type of repair, modification or custom work required for street rods or antique cars or trucks. Parts not available anywhere can be fabricated in house with specialized machines such as the English wheel, Pullmax forming machine, flanging machine, and others.
We can do top chops, sectioning or any kind of custom work. We also specialize in odd ball problem solving such as: linkages, brackets, mounts, and mechanisms. We do plastic blast, paint removal and sand blasting.
My greatest claim to fame has been my "shrunken truck", dubbed the "Amazing Shrunken Truck" by Hot Rod magazine which was a 1948 Chevrolet truck that I reduced in size by 15 percent and appeared in at least 14 magazines.
All speciality metal work is done by myself, Terry Steagall. My background has been in "hands-on" engineering having worked as a engineering technician at General Motors Advanced Engineering in Warren, Michigan for a number of years specializing in sheet metal shaping.
We are a small, home-based business currently working out of a 2300 square foot shop with one full time employee, Jimmy DePaulo, who does most of the media and sand blasting work. He has been with me for over 7 years. A new shop of 4800 square feet is currently being build to better serve our needs.
