  • Shaving the Column- Custom Steering Column Mods

    I had previously covered in a few steps how I had come up with the steering setup on the truck. To make it short, I'm using a Packard steering column housing, a custom column shaft, and a Ford steering wheel. To make all of this work together took a bit of work, but I've got it all bolted up and it should all jive pretty good when done. Now I need to finish up the small details that will make the column not only look good, but also work smoothly together. I'll be covering the latter in another post, but for now I decided to show you how I went about shaving the unneeded holes from the column housing.   Click Here To Read Full Post...

  • Hobby Month Customer Spotlight- Marc M. Bike Klub After-School Instructor

    This entire month we've been talking about customers that are crazy for their hobby and some of their beautiful creations. For our final feature we're going to spotlight a guy that took his hobby even further than most and married it with his profession. Marc has been building Motorcycles and Hot Rods since he was a kid alongside his father. During that time he's learned the ins and outs of building his own projects from scratch. Not everyone can fall into doing their hobby as a profession and Marc was no different. He's spent the past 17 years in the education industry and specifically the past 10 teaching Canadian youth in public schools. During his time as a school teacher he's taught everything from Math to Metallurgy. You can see where were going with this right?!  Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • Customer Car Spotlight- Rafael T. 1969 Chevy Camaro Restoration

    We're firm believers that the "Motorhead bug" runs in the family. Most times when talking with an enthusiast you'll find someone in their family got them into cars at a young age. You can fight it, but it will find you at some point in life and you'll be tinkering with your own project car eventually.   Click Here To Read Full Post...
