Roger and Nadin Suppiger (Soo.P.Grr) moved to San Antonio from Zurich, Switzerland pursuing The American Dream. they left behind a successful full-body repair and motorcycle business getting squeezed by european emission standards. these new regulations led many of their classic and custom car, motorcycle, and chopper customers to sell their vehicles. Roger and Nadine did not want to sell their 1968 customized dodge charger, nor did they want to focus their entire business on daily drivers. they can do it all, as you will see on this website, but they have a passion for old-school American Muscle. so, after more than 30 years in business, they sold their shop and moved to the U.S. in search of a new one. They purchased Kayser Automotive in August 2019 and rebranded it as Steelbodywork.

A car tune-up is a type of preventive maintenance performed on a vehicle to ensure it continues to perform well. A tune-up is typically regularly scheduled and offers the chance for you to get all of the preventive maintenance your car needs at that time. Getting a car tune-up regularly will help you maintain your car's performance and extend its life. Most older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions should be tuned every 10,000 to 12,000 miles or every year, whichever comes first. Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are scheduled to go from 25,000 miles to as many as 100,000 miles without needing a major tune-up. Please come by so we can check what does your car need.
Our goal is simple 'fixing it right' and restoring your vehicle to pre-accident condition, without cutting corners. Please feel free to come by for a free estimate.

"Steelbodywork is the best, and most trustworthy, garage and bodyshop in San Antonio. I trusted them with my vintage 1961 Ford Thunderbird. They rebuilt my front end, installed a entirely new exhaust system, properly aligned and mounted my radial tires and chrome wire rims, attached a far better functioning battery and basically gave me the ride I've always wanted in my dream car. They did everything so quickly, and their work so far exceeded my expectations that I will never take my family's four vehicles anywhere else. Our other cars are from 2012-2014 and Steelbodywork can do whatever we need, regardless of make, model, or age. Take your Classic Car here or take your daily driver. Roger, Bryan, and Nadine are the most professional and trustworthy people I ever met in the auto business. I trusted them with my Classic Car, you can trust them with your car too."
