Services

Pro Comp Custom offers a variety of services. Whether you are looking to simply change paint color or do a full turn-key restoration, our team has the experience and expertise to deliver the service of your choosing with incredible results.

Complete Restoration

We take exceptional pride and care when restoring your investment-grade beauty. Whether it is a 1960s Ford Mustang or a vintage 1950s Chrysler Imperial, we will restore it using exacting specifications. Our white glove service includes all steps and processes required to restore your car to its original pristine state.

Custom Paint

Life is too short to drive a car with factory paint. With many years of combined experience, our body shop, painter, and paint finisher will leave you with the best paint job around. We can create a custom paint job to be as mild or as wild as you’d like. And rest assured no one, anywhere, will have the same paint as you.

Custom Fabrication

At our state of the art facility, we have the ability to create exactly what you are looking for with your vehicle. From our many chopped and sectioned cars, to the ones with hand made dashboards and exhaust systems, we can virtually do it all.

Pro-Touring

We can take the stock appearance of your car and replace as many of the moving parts as you desire with modern upgrades (drivetrain, steering, brakes, suspension, etc) Also, we can restore and modify your vehicle to your specifications, so it is better than new in the way it drives and performs, but still retains that factory fresh look of an original car.

Engine Tuning

Engine tuning is an adjustment, modification of the internal combustion engine, or modification to its control unit. It is adjusted to yield optimal performance, to increase an engine's power output and/or durability.

Resto-Mod

A restomod car has that timeless appearance of the original, but the outdated guts of the car have been replaced with much more modern, high-performance parts available today. You'll achieve the same great look, but your vintage car will be revved up with all the latest bells & whistles to create a much better ride for the owner.

Pro Comp Custom only employs the best. Our team has the experience and expertise to deliver the service of your choosing with incredible results.

Bruce Harvey

Bruce is a genius when it comes to building, painting and restoring cars. He has a one-of-a-kind gift that one rarely sees. Between the custom paint colors, airbrushing, and body fabrication it is no surprise he has won over 100 awards including 12 Best of Show awards and the Darryl Starbird Personal Pick Award. In addition, his cars have been featured in movies, countless magazines, show venue billboards, show tickets and promotional items, and even a few have been displayed at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Bruce knows it’s a team effort. He collaborates with the Pro Comp team and customers to build a unique car no one has ever seen. Around the shop, Bruce is always hard at work. He doesn’t sit in a cushy office; he’s out working on the shop floor wearing the same work shirt as the rest of the employees. His favorite Pro Comp cars are the 1970 Charger, Willys, Ratical Rod, and the 1964 Corvette (featured in Vette Magazine). When he was 12 he would sketch cars all day with the dream he would have his own custom shop. His dad was instrumental with this dream by having Bruce help him in the garage after school and on weekends. In 1988 Bruce opened Pro Comp Custom and has been living his dream and building cars like no other.

Matt

Matt is one of those rare people who uses both his left brain and his right brain. He has been dazzling Pro Comp customers with his artistry and mechanical abilities since 2008. He started his career as an electronics engineer, but his passion was cars. At 14 he began welding and tinkering with cars. Wanting to live the dream, he went back to school where he specialized in street rod and custom fabrication and graduated from WyoTech receiving the coveted Most Distinguished Student Award in his field. He is a true artist doing easel painting and car sketches using pastels and airbrushing. He is a nationally recognized rally race car driver (in his custom built 1994 Honda Civic) with a growing collection of trophies and accolades. In his spare time, you’ll find him at home hanging with his dog or out in the woods on his mountain bike. Also, Matt still owns the car he had in high school, a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle. His favorite Pro Comp car is the Renault Alpine A110 Berlinette with the Porsche 996 twin turbo drivetrain.





Matt

Will

Will moved to Pittsburgh from Moses Lake, WA to attend WyoTech, because of the school's top-of-the-line reputation. This speaks volumes of Will’s love of cars, his passion for restoration, and his desire to be the best. At 15 Will bought his grandfather’s ’77 Chevy pickup and once he got his hands on it he knew his destiny was to restore cars. He is well-versed on all aspects of car restoration, from mechanical to custom fabrication. In fact, he can say he built a chassis from scratch — and it is mind blowing! His favorite Pro Comp Custom car is the '66 Chevy Nova Pro Street and he has a long line of diverse personal favorites. His hobbies are mud racing, home improvement projects, and working on cars, but he most loves spending time with his two boys, and his wonderful wife, Kate.





Will

Jimmy

Jimmy is one cool cat. And for so many reasons. He was in the Navy, he’s lived all over the US, he was one of the original six members of the V-Dub Culture car club, he designs and builds dual purpose furniture, he’s an outstanding cook, he could star in his own outdoor adventure show, plus he keeps his mind fresh with reading everything from human behavior to economics. But the reason we value Jimmy is his work ethic, intelligence, and his mad fabrication skills. His favorite Pro Comp built car is the 1949 Mercury and his favorite personal car is an air-cooled VW. When not at the shop, you’ll find Jimmy spending quality time with his two best friends — his beloved dog, Highway and his dad.





Jimmy

Jesse

When you want unique artistry in your metalwork, look no further than Jesse. We are impressed with his creativity and perfectionistic welding skills. He can create a clean, modern look or an intricate custom pattern depending on the build. Jesse was educated early in the art of metal fabrication, since his dad had his own business of refinishing and selling muscle cars. He furthered his expertise by graduating from Wyotech with concentrations in Street Rod and Collision Refinishing. Jesse’s hobbies are all right-brained (as one would expect) and in addition to drawing, he is a professional tattoo artist. His favorite car is the Datsun 240Z and his favorite Pro Comp car is the ’49 Mercury.





Jesse

Randy

Randy grew up in Lancaster and like many of us, started wrenching on the family vehicles with his dad. It didn’t take long for Randy to discover his passion for fabrication and customization. Randy started his career working on Subarus. Now a highly skilled metal worker and mechanic with meticulous attention to detail, Randy lives for that first drive after a completed build. When he’s not working at the shop or at home on his chopped ’28 Studebaker, he throws a leg over his Electra Glide and heads to the pool hall for a night of shooting stick with his wife Caleigh. Randy’s all-time favorite car is the classic ’69 Chevelle and his favorite Pro Comp build is the ’40 Ford Coupe.





Randy

Ian

We always marvel at Ian’s impeccable appearance. Even though he is dressed in mechanic’s attire, he always looks polished. Equally marveling is his vast knowledge of any and every subject. Ian began his higher education at Temple, but his love for cars was too strong not to pursue. We have his dad to thank for Ian’s car enthusiasm. He had a home garage and Ian would watch his dad work on a variety of projects. In grade school he would hand his dad tools AND help change brakes and shocks. While Ian can do about anything, he leans toward wiring and interiors. His hobbies are baseball, playing guitar, graphic design, and (of course) working on cars. Not to mention he gets to daily drive his ’70 C20 pick up. His favorite car is the iconic Corvette and his favorite Pro Comp build is the 1000hp 1962 Bonneville.





Ian

Nick

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Nick started working on cars at the tender age of 4 and his job was handing wrenches to his grandpap in the family garage. When he was 12, Nick received his first project of his own, a 1982 Chevy C10 that belonged to his grandpap. Nick has kept the old Chevy on the road and still drives it regularly. Nick received his technical education from Pennsylvania College of Technology. With new paint and body projects rolling in and out of his home garage, Nick stays busy, but he does find time to enjoy his other hobbies, hanging out on his boat in the summer and carving the slopes on a snowboard in the winter. Nick’s favorite cars of all time are the Trans Ams of the late 70s and his favorite Pro Comp build is the ’62 Bonneville.





Nick

Joey

Joey discovered his love for old cars on his father’s shoulders wandering through endless rows of classics at the local hot rod shows. But, the defining moment for Joey was on a trip to his grandparents’ house in Missouri for Easter when he was about 7. He was awoken early Easter morning by the distinct sound of a growling Hemi, when he looked out the window, sitting in the driveway was a gorgeous ’67 Coronet. Joey was hooked. Joey’s specialties are metal fabrication and body work. Outside of the shop, Joey finds his peace tending his home garden. His favorite car of all time is the ’69 Hemi Roadrunner and his favorite Pro Comp build is the “Solo” ’70 Charger.





Joey

Rob

Rob is by far the best detailer in the universe. He started his path to excellence as a teenager washing big rigs at the local Mack truck lot. He quickly discovered the satisfaction that comes from taking dirty vehicles and returning them back to showroom condition. Rob spent years honing his technique and eye for detail and now, as our lead detailer, he is responsible for the final finish of each of Bruce’s incredible paint jobs. In his free time, Rob enjoys landscaping and he keeps his yard as well detailed as his truck. Rob’s favorite car of all time is the C4 Corvette and his favorite Pro Comp build is the one-of-a-kind ’31 Chevy coupe.





Rob

Steve

When Steve was a little kid, his older brother picked up a cherry ’66 LeMans convertible to drive back and forth to school. Cruising the strip with his brother, top down in that old LeMans was the epitome of cool and became the foundation for a lifetime obsession with all things cars. After graduating from Penn State with an engineering degree, Steve affirmed his passion for cars and started his career tearing down engines at a local machine shop. After the machine shop, Steve shifted gears into a parts role and says his favorite part of the build process is hunting for those hard-to-find parts tucked away on a shelf in a garage, covered in dust, just waiting to be added to one of our wild custom or concours restorations. Steve’s favorite car of all time is a ’41 Willys Coupe and his favorite Pro Comp build is, fittingly, the wild green and black ’41 Willys Coupe.
