Boy have I sucked lately at keeping up on the blog! Jacob took the torch home and she's been running great. Of course the kiddo doesn't get to drive it yet, she got grounded for hitting a parked car. We've all been there.. Now we have a 69 c10 we are redoing the sheet metal floor on. She was pretty rough in the flooring but the bracing was horrible. So it's all getting cut out and replaced. We have a 66 mustang now! She's getting a 5.3 & 4l60, because as you know the best way to make a ford cool is to put a Chevy in it. Then the hearse has the big block back in it, we reset the motor location moving it up a few inches and back, losing the factory ac but that's life. Sometimes you have to sacrifice parts to make a beast of a motor fit. She's getting custom made headers tomorrow. Then her sister- the cadmino- is still at paint for the body side, now the frame is sandblasted and tubbed but we are waiting on the rear end to finish that up.
Gabe had been busy making harnesses, especially Randi's for the snowcone. We have to retain some factory wiring on that one, so it's taking a bit longer. Also did a harness for a 4x4 recovery vehicle, Joe Osuch... And another for a local restoration shop.
Eric has come a long way and think we finally found his niche. That boy has the vision with metal! He had been fabricating a turbo set up, working on the cadmino and hearse. We are keeping him busy and in 2 weeks we have another c10 coming in for c-notches and a 4 link set up.
Mike and Jeff have been working on all kinds of daily driver work. Jeff got himself stuck on a few little buggies, one to be made street legal for the customers hosier in the white mountains. Bringing those back from a few years sitting has been quite the task. Especially finding parts :(. Mike has pulled a 90 something tpi motor out of a Trans am since it continued to have intermix after another shop in michigan supposedly fixed it. Waiting on that block to come back and see if she's cracked.
Manh's 67 c10 made it back to fallbrook just before the fires started in San Diego county! Thankfully Manh, his family and the truck all came through just fine!!!
Phil and Randi made the decision to forward the shop phone to Randi's cell so we don't miss any calls. It's much easier to communicate with our wonderful customers when we don't have to call back or have you repeat yourselves!!
Lastly- if you bring us a children's you between now and June 15,2014 we will give you 10% off. All toys will be donated to children in the hospital battling cancer. Fiends of ours recently went thru cancer treatment with their lil guy, same age as miss k, luckily he is currently in no evidence of disease stage!!! Go parker!!
