Petty’s Garage Has New Equipment for “The King”

RichardPettyfavorites0005They call him “The King”. He’s a legend. A champion NASCAR driver for his record setting Daytona 500 and NASCAR championship wins. Richard Petty IS NASCAR. He began racing in 1958. In all, Petty accumulated 200 victories, and seven Cup championships, before retiring in 1992. He started more races, won more races, and made more money than any stock-car driver in history. I don’t have to tell you how amazing his career is.

 

Now, Petty’s name is on a high-performance speed shop in his hometown of Level Cross, NC. Petty’s Garage modifies all sorts of cars, focusing on Mustangs and Jeep Wranglers; through a deal they have with Ford. The engines are louder, the paint job is sleeker and the rims are off the chain. These cars are sweet. What’s even more interesting to us is to see the guys in the shop modifying these cars. How they do it, what equipment they use and the process.

When Petty’s Garage started to modify a lot of cars at once, they found a need for some equipment upgrades in their shop. Standard Tools and Equipment Co., based just 20 minutes apart, had everything they needed.

We are so excited to announce that Standard Tools and Equipment has partnered with Petty’s Garage to offer some of the best equipment on the market for their needs. So, what are they using in their shop? This video will give you a sneak peek inside their speed shop, with The King himself.

Over the years we have had customers from all industries and fame-levels. Here in North Carolina, Richard Petty, is the ultimate local icon. It was such an exciting experience to provide ‘The KING’ with equipment to do what he does best, modify cars.

Petty’s Garage has a custom sanding and prep booth and a side-downdraft paint booth for that custom petty paint job. There is a Sure-Cure air makeup unit attached to the paint booth for easy temperature control and quick cures. After all, they have a lot of cars to do and don’t have time to wait for it to dry.

Down the road, still in Level Cross, sits a storage building with eight storage lifts from Eagle Equipment that house racecars from the past. Cars once driven by Richard, Kyle and even Adam. See photos of those lifts on our blog.

We also have some tire equipment and our alignment system over at Petty’s Garage. After all, once they put those big tires on the Jeeps, they need to make sure they go straight.

At Standard Tools, we believe that with the right equipment, you can be the King of your garage. We want to assist you in selecting the equipment that will not only fit your needs, but also be there when you business grows and changes. Give us a call at 800.336.2776.

Richard Petty is sport’s most enduring and perhaps endearing figure. Both Petty’s Garage and Standard Tools’ are trusted and established brands in our perspective industries. Petty is an icon in the racing world, but moreover, he is known as a man who is passionate about what he does, works hard and is a perfectionist about his work. That’s someone that we’re proud to have as an advocate for our brand.

Paint Booth Customer: HARDCORE CHOPPERS + HARDCORE HOT RODS

HARDCORE CHOPPERS + HARDCORE HOT RODS
STERLING, VA

newpaintbike2Alfredo is the owner of Hardcore Choppers and Hardcore Hot Rods out of Sterling, VA. Recently they called us for some new equipment for a new shop. They purchased a Mid-Sized Semi-Down Draft paint booth from us in 2006 (notice the old-style booth doors. The new style can be seen here). He said that they really love using the booth they purchased from us and still use it a ton!

They have used our booth for years and have painted some high profile choppers that have appeared on Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off and on the V Twin Channel. Up until a few years ago, he was strictly a custom bike builder. Once the recession hit, the custom bike market dropped dramatically. This caused him to move into the car restoration business.

Alfredo is putting the finishing touches on his new shop in Sterling, which will include an Eagle MOBILEMAN lift, 10 new Eagle 2-post lifts and 1 new 4-post lift. This will give him the equipment he needs to continue to grow his business and Eagle is happy to be a part of it! Can’t wait to see more photos from Alfredo.

AUTOMOTIVE EQUIPMENT PICK-UP GUIDELINES

 

Our products are designed to be shipped via common carrier freight lines and this is the shipping method that we recommend. However, for convenience, we will allow customers to pick up their automotive equipment within the following guidelines:

1. All orders picked up will be subject to applicable North Carolina sales tax unless buyer has provided a NC Sales Tax Exemption Certificate.

2. Customers are not allowed in the warehouse area without a salesperson. Customers may not assist or interfere with the loading of the auto equipment.

3. Customer is responsible for any damages to the equipment and/or their vehicle resulting from the loading and transporting of the equipment.

4. Vehicle weight restrictions will be strictly observed. Customer may be asked to provide weight restriction information on trailers.

5. Eagle recommends side loading of car lifts onto vehicles. When this is not possible, the automotive equipment will be rear loaded. Eagle will make its best effort to center the load weight. However, customer will be responsible for any shifting or falling of equipment or off-centered load that results in damage.

6. Equipment will only be loaded right side up.

7. Customers are responsible for strapping down their equipment on the vehicle.  No load will be allowed to leave the premises without being strapped down.

8. Pick up vehicles must have sufficient width and length to insure that the equipment does not protrude illegally from the vehicle. Trucks with tailgates must be able to fully close the tailgate with the equipment inside.

9. Car lifts will not be loaded onto pick-up trucks.

10. Automotive equipment will not be loaded onto vehicles that appear to be unsafe or lack proper equipment. This will be determined at the sole discretion of the Eagle warehouse supervisor.

These requirements have been established to help insure the safety of you, your vehicle, and your equipment. If your vehicle does not meet the above requirements, we suggest that you let our logistics department obtain the best shipping quote possible for your equipment.

I have read, understand, and agree to the requirements above:

Receiving Your Shipment of a Car Lift, Tire Changer, Wheel Balancer, Spray Booth or Auto Body Shop Supplies

Thank you for choosing Eagle Equipment for your automotive equipment needs.  Whether your order ships UPS, LTL (Less Than Load, i.e.  Estes, FedEx ), below are a few tips to make receipt of your car lift, tire changer, brake lathe, wheel balancer, spray booth or other auto body shop supplies as easy as possible.

Our shipping department makes every effort to ship your order in a manner that allows for easy offloading, including arranging a carrier and extending the discounts provided to us by our shipping partners. When possible, a flatbed is used to transport larger items.

If your order consists of a product(s) that ships LTL, you are responsible for offloading. Please note there are additional charges for residential delivery, delivery to construction sites, college campuses, etc. If you are unsure as to whether you have a special circumstance, contact Eagle Equipment’s Customer Service department prior to the shipment of your order and we will gladly assist you with special handling.

We will contact you the morning following shipment to advise you of the estimated delivery date, as well as other pertinent order information.  If you require a specific delivery time, we will provide you with a tracking/PRO number and the phone number of the delivering terminal.  The dispatcher will then schedule the delivery at your convenience.

A car lift, tire changer, brake lathe, wheel balancer, spray booth or other large auto body shop supplies may require the use of a forklift and are too large for the use of a truck with a lift gate.  A lift gate can be used to offload items such as; tire changers/balancers, power pullers and ductwork.  In addition, certain paint spray booths are shipped in special large crates that require the use of a forklift with extensions to support the extra weight.

Careful inspection is required in order to make sure your order has not sustained any damage during transit.  Upon delivery, please visually inspect the external packaging for any crushed corners, loose box flaps, broken straps, retaping etc.  While you have the right to refuse any shipment you feel is damaged, we ask that you accept delivery and notate possible damage on the delivery receipt. IF THE DAMAGE IS EXTENSIVE, YOU MAY CALL US WHILE THE DRIVER STANDS BY, TO DETERMINE IF THE SHIPMENT SHOULD BE REFUSED. We recommend that you make a copy of the delivery receipt for your records.

Please retain all shipping containers and internal packaging, as it is likely an inspection will be required if your order arrives damaged. Call us immediately and we will instruct you on what to do, should your unit require replacement. We may ask you to take pictures using your cell phone or a digital camera and forward them to us.  Photos are a great way for us to expedite the process of filing a damage claim if necessary. Rest assured that should a replacement be needed, we will handle it as quickly as possible.

Smaller items that are shipped via UPS or FedEx Ground may not require a signature.  If delivery is attempted for packages requiring a signature and no one is there to sign, two more attempts will be made before the package is returned to its origination. If an order is returned to its point of origination and you want it reshipped, you will be billed for the outbound shipping charge.

While every effort is made to ensure your order ships correctly, from time to time, errors occur.  PLEASE REPORT ALL SHORTAGES AND/OR DEFECTS TO US WITHIN SEVEN (7) DAYS OF RECEIPT.  FOR AN EASY INVENTORY OF PAINT BOOTH COMPONENTS, REFER TO THE BILL OF MATERIALS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY HALF WAY THROUGH THE INSTALLATION MANUAL. THIS DOCUMENT LISTS ALL COMPONENTS ACCORDING TO QUANTITY, DESCRIPTION AND PART NUMBER.

AFTER SEVEN DAYS, YOU WILL BE CHARGED OUTBOUND SHIPPING FOR ANY ITEM(S) RESHIPPED.

Please feel free to contact us. We are here to ensure your experience with us is a pleasant one.  Again, thank you for choosing Eagle Equipment.
