A Little Bit About Us:

FastLane Rod Shop is a fully equipped shop that can handle most jobs. Equipment such as TIG and MIG Welders (Miller Square Wave 250 and Lincoln SP250 respectively), Bridgeport Mill, South Bend Lathe, Horizontal and Vertical Band Saw, English Wheel, Shrinker/Stretchers, Bead Roller, Sheet Metal Brake, Slip Roller, Glass Bead cabinet, Oxyacetylene Torch, among other tools help keep as much work in-house as possible. This keeps transportation costs down and reduces the problems with different shops doing different things (which usually result in costly redo work and finger pointing). Also within the shop is a chassis jig and spray booth, along with an attached 2000SqFt building for storage of parts, keeping them fresh and out of harms way.

We work hard to keep overhead costs down and shop rates affordable.

Over the years we have been blessed with some national recognition. The following is a list of awards accumulated by projects we have been associated with:
