Introducing: Resurrection Diesel Performance


Resurrected Deisel LogoMy name is Rory Smith-Bell, and I’m the owner of Resurrected Diesel Performance. After serving 5 years in the Marine Corps as a fixed wing safety equipment mechanic, I knew I wanted to start my own business. I decided to use my passion for trucks and experience as a mechanic to start a shop. I started Resurrected Diesel Performance in a single-bay garage in California. I knew the potential was there but California wasn’t where we needed to be. So I called up my friend Dalton, who was a Panama City Beach native, and he told me PCB needed a shop that specializes in diesel repair. After months of planning and trips out to Florida we knew this would be the new home of our business. We couldn’t have been happier to have moved into such an amazing community. Since opening our doors here we have expanded our operations to include diesel repair and custom fabrication. Our services range from routine maintenance work and engine rebuilds to custom suspension and upgrades. Something that makes us different is the addition of our CNC plasma table. The opportunities are endless with it, we can make just about anything from custom brackets and traction bars to signs and art.

Our team is committed to providing excellent service and an open line of communication to ensure you feel confident about the work done on your vehicle. We know that you not only rely on your vehicle to get them from point A to point B, but a lot of you use your trucks to run your businesses as well, so getting you back on the road as soon as possible is extremely important to us. When we get a truck in the shop, we thoroughly diagnose the issues at hand, create a list of recommended repairs with pricing and timeline, and promptly repair vehicles as soon as the parts come in. Honesty, efficiency and reliability are the pillars that I built Resurrected Diesel Performance on five years ago and we strive every day to provide the best service possible. We are here for all your diesel needs!
