That’s right, even Richard Petty trusts none other than AEI with his equipment installations and maintenance.  Automotive Equipment Installation has done a tremendous amount of work for many popular drivers, which is quite a testimony to their professional and quality services.  So take it from a few of the best in Nascar! “The King” Richard Petty and others including Rusty and Steven Wallace have used Joe Mendola and his crew for lift purchasing, installation and maintenance for some of their favorite toys. Check out the galleries below to see the work these pros have had done, and hopefully find some inspiration for a project of your own.  Please do not hesitate to call us or email us for more information or a quote.
