Machine tool builder SMTCL-Americas, City Of Industry, Calif., has partnered with West Coast Customs by supplying a CNC machine tool to the Burbank, Calif., custom auto body shop. The VMC2100B vertical machining center will allow West Coast Customs to create customized wheels and body parts in-house. This partnership will also allow SMTCL customers to purchase the West Coast Custom Edition VMC2100B.
"We're excited to be able to work with SMTCL and can't wait to see what we are capable of by using this great machine,"said Ryan Friedlinghaus, founder of West Coast Customs.
Friedlinghaus and West Coast Customs were initially featured on MTV's Pimp My Ride, where they redesigned cars with unique and unusual features. After the show ended, West Coast Customs, spurred by popular demand, launched a new show on Fox Sports, in which Friedlinghaus and his team develop unique custom cars for celebrities, including Sylvester Stallone, Justin Bieber, and will.i.am. West Coast Customs airs on Fox Sports, Sunday nights at 7PT and 10ET.
