  • Learn from a legend- Gene Winfield Custom Metal Working Class

    I decided to make a trip to Harmony, PA (about 35 minutes outside Pittsburgh, PA) to Hahn-Vorbach & Associates Collector Car Restoration to visit Gene and become a student of "Windy Winfield". The metal shaping classes are always small in size and very intimate. This isn't a class where you'll be sitting in a chair listening to a lecture and just taking notes, Gene gets EVERYONE involved and is happy to take on any and all questions. The classes are commonly two day events starting promptly at 9AM and lasting until whenever everyone is exhausted. If you want to attend these classes, be sure to get plenty of sleep ahead of time because it's high paced with little to no breaks.  Click Here To Read Full Post...

    The body then went to primer and paint and was covered in a lovely shade of deep red. This thing is REALLY red, reminds me of the red found on a certain Italian super car manufacturer. With the body all painted and assembled the crew married the body and the roadster shop chassis together and continued reassembly. This is where the fun (and stressful!) part of the project begins. As each shiny part is bolted to the car the Impala takes shape and we can really see how great this thing is going to look rolling down the street.   Click Here To Read Full Post...

  • Tips to save time when Powder Coating Harley Wheels

    These wheels originally were polished aluminum factory wheels on a Harley and after a years of daily-riding the wheels had some pretty heavy corrosion and baked-on brake dust. The first step was to disassemble the wheels completely (remove tires, all bearings, grease, seals, etc) and media blast them until we were left with clean, virgin aluminum.  Click Here To Read Full Post...
