RP Enterprises was created by Rick Paris in 1988 serving as a high end, award winning, automotive restoration shop, geared towards Ferrari, Porsche, and one of a kind Automotive Masterpieces specializing in Sheet Metal and Painting. Of particular interest, RP Enterprises made a name for itself as the exclusive auto body and paint shop to work on Gerald Wiegert's Vector Supercar.
Rick Paris sold RP enterprises shop in 2006 after a near-death experience. Under Roy Payumo, the shop grew as a local staple and became a fixture in the South Bay. RP Enterprises was no longer exclusively doing restoration work, they leveraged their extensive talent and tools and expanded into collision repair for high-end automobiles.
In 2021 SoCal Auto partners bought RP Enterprises and rebranded as ARS Collision under Adam Berger. Adam brings 22 years of experience working for the Volkswagen Group as a transformational leader in both Lamborghini and Audi. ARS Collision may be a new name for the shop, but it also marks a period of going back to the start. We're focusing on high-end, creative body-work and restorations.
