C.H. Topping has specialized in automotive braking systems since 1931. They are the “one stop brake shop” for anything brake related. They have a full machine shop, a full service shop, which includes “on the car” work, and they re-line friction surfaces in-house. They take pride in what they do and are trusted by industry professionals and various car museums. Their team can handle any brake related challenge. They fix the “tough” braking issues that other shops and local dealerships cannot handle. They also do the brakes on “daily drivers”. Whether you drive a Honda or a vintage Ferrari race car they are able to maximize your braking potential and fine tune the braking system to meet your needs.
Vince Bunting has owned C.H. Topping brakes for over 35 years. Vinny Bunting, Vince’s son, has been helping his dad in the business since he was a kid. Vinny was born and raised in Long Beach, he graduated with a degree in fire science and mechanical engineering from Cal State Long Beach. He has been offered jobs at SpaceX and JPL but has instead to work with his father at CH Topping and work on special projects on the side. Vinny is now an associate member of the Execs.
Vinny’s talk gave us insight into what work they do at CH Topping Brakes. At CH Topping, they work on any brake issues for current vehicles with around a half day to day turn around. They also work on a lot of vintage vehicles too. They currently are taking appointments more then a month out for the vintage cars. Vinny explains that fleet vehicles usually have a lot of brake issues due to the weight and amount of work the vehicles take on and at CH Topping they can upgrade the brake systems so they will be able to handle the workload. Vinny let us know that they install brake systems on RVs, boat trailers, and industrial brake systems as well.
Vinny also provided some great tips. Find brakes that work for your type of driving so you are not replacing them as often. You can also resurface your rotors a few times before replacing them which is much cheaper. He also informs his clients that they should flush their brake lines every few years as it will also help their brake systems. If you ever feel that your brakes just aren’t doing the job anymore go see Vince and Vinny Bunting at CH Topping Brakes.
