Maupin Metal, a custom Impala shop based in Dallas, purchased Brunner Trim and Glass garage, and it will be featured in an upcoming TV episode.
Brunner Trim and Glass, located in the Casa View area at Garland Road and Jupiter Road, has been around for decades. The building will have 15 car bays to accommodate retail automotive services and custom frame-off builds. Services available include mechanical, metal fabrication, paint and body, custom interiors, convertible tops, glass and upholstery.
While the garage is under new ownership, the Brunner staff has been retained by Maupin Metal, a company founded by Brian Maupin, a former CIO at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit who lives in Lake Highlands.
The garage will be featured in an upcoming episode of My Dream Car on Fox.
“Our growth has been off the charts, and we can’t wait to operate out of this larger shop so that we can ramp up even more,” Maupin says. “We’re so proud of the national and international reputation we have built around restoring replicas of the Supernatural Impala and look forward to showing the world the passion and creativity we bring to restoring all classic cars.”
Maupin started his journey with classic cars in 2015, when he, his daughter and father began building a replica of the 1967 Impala, as seen on the Supernatural TV series. Soon, his hobby became a business venture, and he leased a garage and hired a few employees. The business grew in popularity as Maupin and his team began to ship cars across the world.
Maupin Metal’s latest acquisition, the former Brunner Trim and Glass, is located a couple miles east of White Rock Lake, at 11424-G Garland Road.
