New in the shop

Welcome once again to what's "New In The Shop". 

We are still building the body that we designed for a Model T hill-climber race car.    We'll post photos to show you the progress.  It is designed to have that vintage speedway racer look and appeal.  Does that sound like fun or what?

We are still feverishly working on that project at the same time as the 4-inch top chop on a 1930 Model A.  The top is fully welded and metal-finished now, so we're only left with fitting and welding the door-tops on and welding and re-installing the garnish mouldings.  As much as we would love to put in some more time on our very own SPEEDSTERS Tulip T and Closed-cab pickup truck restoration projects, we are making the client projects priority.

I just have to show off our master craftsmen's handy work here.  We received a brand new pair of hood sides for a '32 Ford, and spiced it up with louvers, then riveted on some blisters.  Here's how those turned out looking:

We hope you had the opportunity to make the road-trip to Chickasha, Oklahoma a few weeks ago (March 18th & 19th) for the annual pre-war automobile swap-meet.  And, naturally, we hope you visited us at our indoor booth.  We proudly displayed the "T" racer and a few other metal-finishing projects in our booth.

If you have a car project that you would like to see displayed on our website, we would love to see your photos.  When we receive them we will view them, possibly crop (simply for file size), and display them for everyone to see.  Send us a few photos attached to an e-mail to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
