FFR Fabrication & Repair


Tony Ruiz started FFR Fabrication & Repair as a one man operation, with a focus on quality and customer service. Clients were drawn to the quality of his work and no bullshit attitude. That was back in 2008 when Tony realized there was a need for high end classic car service, repair and restoration in San Jose.

Today FFR is a one stop shop for all things automotive. We can provide regular auto repair and maintenance for your daily driver at the same time as we are building your custom dream car. We have a great team of fabricators and technicians with a broad range of skills that allow us to build and repair just about anything.
