We Are


Welcome to BodyWorks Auto Body Repair in St. Pete, Florida

In March of 2003, BodyWorks Auto Body Repair opened its doors for business in St. Petersburg, Florida. For the past 17 years, we have proudly served as Tampa Bay's most trusted auto repair and restoration shop.


Your vehicle is a vital part of your everyday life. It's what gets you from Point A to Point B, and everything in between. That's why it's crucial to have a reliable company you can turn to when disaster strikes. And when it comes to protecting your investment, you deserve only the highest quality services from a team of dedicated experts.

Our History

Mel Mendez, owner and restoration artist, pursued his passion and

founded The BodyWorks Auto Body Repair in 2003. Today, he and his

team continue to offer his expertise and experience to residents across

north St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area.

With each and every project that comes along, Mel holds fast to his

philosophy, “I believe that if you do a great job at a fair price, and hold

to your promises, you will receive business based on this reputation.”

At BodyWorks Auto Body Repair, we understand that each vehicle's

damages - and needs for restoration - are unique, as are the

circumstances for each vehicle's owner.


At BodyWorks Auto Body Repair, we work with both our customers

and their insurance companies to restore damaged vehicles to

road-worthy and factory standards.
