We have been wondering what had happened to Aron’s coupe since it sold on ebay and left to the west coast -it’s made a you tube video appearance.

Steve’s 55 -now with pics!

The 60th Detroit AutoRama is open –so now I can finally post the pictures of the truck –including the shots at the show.  It was nice to see all those pieces come together at the end. Check it out!

Had to break them down into categories for easier uploads

And at Detroit

Steve’s 55 Ford

  Is on it’s way to Detroit, soon I’ll able to post the entire build -Wow it’s turned out nice -Joe and the guys at Deez Rodz and Ridez did an amazing job on the paint, and we’re a huge asset in the reassembly process, we used their awesome shop in Uxbridge and thanks to Terry at TK Customs for doing a great job on the interior. I’m looking forward to seeing it at the show, Stop by and say hi if your going to be there.

Das Bootch has left the building

Pulled a few all nighters to get this one ready for the next stage –interior. Then to Megaspeed. I love this car, now I want one. The pics tell more than I can describe.

Feb 9th @ 7 and 11pm will be the welding segment and the chop will be on Feb 13th @ 7 and 11pm, they split them up and reversed the order through the magic of TV!

More fun in the shop right during show season! I’ve been talking with one of the show producers about a segment in the shop for a while now, but I finally made a date Jan 31 and Feb 1st, we’ll be chopping a roof of a 40 Dodge pick up. It will be aired during Garage Gurus week Feb 13th-17th – This also gives me the excuse to paint those unsightly walls on the second floor of the shop

The truck is almost back from paint –sorry, I’m still not allowed to post shots of the truck yet. The colours Steve’s wife chose are brilliant, very 60’s. We reassembled the chassis and sent it off back to Deez to have the cab reinstalled and painted –should be back here this coming week for a massive push to get it reassembled so we can get it to Terry at TK customs for interior ASAP –Detroit is coming up fast!

Rob’s 32

 It was nice to work on something so clean but what a mess, I guess it was made into a street rod back in the day, and then it got hit, remade into another street rod, then another rod, and so on. Really nice shape, just bazaar mods done to it –It fun to diagnose what has gone on over the years with cars and check the quality of the work done back in the day, but when you chop a roof and don’t even line up the doors! Eeesh. We had to remove the roof, cut the cowl section off just to get the doors in the right spots. We reworked the rear door and frame, fixed the overlapping roof, added new drip rails, installed the Bitchen floors, removed the rust, door gaps, etc –the usual. Rob’s the nicest guy and we want his first hot rod to be a fun experience, now he’s got a great base on which to reassemble.

The Bootch

Is back and is being reassembled, I really like the contrast between the engine turning and the black paint. I think for me the most stressful time of the build is the reassembly –thinking 10 steps ahead wondering if I got that right or allotted for this or that and the big one -“is it to late to change it?”

It’s getting cold out

But Dave doesn’t care, he’ll drive till there’s snow on the ground.

I hope your cars have heaters! My neighbors at HyHope farms are having a car show on the 22nd and have asked me to be a part of it.  There will be bands, food etc -the usual stuff -last chance before the icy cold hands of winter lock down on us to get out, come check out the shop if you’re so inclined. If there’s snow -we can toboggan
