My name is Jerry Kassis, AKA Dr. J. I have been in the restoration business for over 30 years, in partnership with my brother Steve in The Filling Station, LLC, Chevrolet & GMC Quality Reproduction Parts.
I have been a gear-head most of my life and have recently decided to get out from behind the desk and put my experience to practical use. I have been building my home shop for the last 15 years with a home restoration business in mind. Having this business at home and doing it on my own, I am able to work undisturbed (most of the time) and keep my overhead down. This results in better quality work and savings for my customers!
My idea is to “help” you complete your project. I am not into full restorations (for the most part), but I will help you on different facets of your restoration to help move your project along. A common problem with restorations is that you can get stuck on a certain part and lose momentum. If this happens and you are having trouble moving forward, this is where I can help.
I specialize in classic cars and trucks, mostly Chevys, but I will work on most any make or model. I now have a 6 bay shop at my home in Lebanon, Oregon.
One bay has an in-ground hoist, another bay (not seen in this picture) has my motorcycle/ATV lift, the third is an area where I do much of my welding and fabricating, the fourth is my machine shop, complete with a Sharp LMV manual milling machine, an Acer lathe, drill press, grinders, hydraulic press, etc. The fifth bay will be my sandblasting booth (not completed yet), and the sixth bay will be my paint booth and mixing room (still working on this also).
I have been very busy with jobs since I started the business in February of 2012. Unfortunately this is making it very difficult to find the time to complete my paint and sandblast rooms, but I will get them done, hopefully in the next year or so.
If you are interested in following my projects and what is going on in my shop, check out my Facebook page (Dr J’s Restoration Rx).
If you are interested in having me do some work to help you along on your project vehicle, just go to my “Contact Us” page and give me a shout. I would be happy to discuss your project with you and see if I can give you the right prescription to move your project along.
Thanks for checking me out, and Happy Motoring!
