Saving the world, one Mopar at a time.

BODY SHOP 

Doing body work was not my original specialty. I picked up most of what I know by watching "old-timers" in action. I've converted most of what I learned into practical experience by working on my own cars. Then again, being an ASE certified Master Body & Fenderman doesn't hurt either. :-)

The test of a good bodyman is the quality of his work. Not only must he make the car safe and correct for operation, a good bodyman should NOT leave any tell-tale signs that he was there. Here are some modest examples:

MECHANICAL SHOP

Variety is what keeps one going. When the body shop is getting on my nerves, I know it's time to break up the monotony and do some mechanical work.

There never seems to be an end of things that need fixing....

 

 

Just maybe I'll get a chance to finish MY car!.... 

 

John G's Z28 needs some engine work...

Maybe 'Cuda Bob's other car will be next.....  
Danan picked up the Lime Green '70 GTX from Chris G ...

 

PAST PROJECTS

 

 

Keith's Volvo is getting a quick freshen-up.....

 

The Deer-tona got a badly needed paint job!...

 

Curtis C's Harley Davidson fuel tank went bonk! 

 

Chris (my step son) got a notchback VW that looked like a canary...

 

Chris F had a (fiberglass) Cobra shell that is literally straight out of the form...

 

Duster Mike had been waiting patiently 

Allan G's '67 GTX Race car needed some help...

Tom's 'Cuda needed some attention...

Should I power MY CAR with a 440, or some other drivetrain?

Chris G.'s '70 Challenger was nice, but was showing it's age....

Dennis needed an engine built ...

Don's '69 Charger R/T... 

Tony's '69 Monaco needs some attention....

Allan's '70 GTX.... 

Tony's '65 Coronet Convertible...

Mike's '70 340 Swinger....

Slantbert.....

Tony's '66 Lemans... or is it a GTO...?? ... 

 

Time to work on 'CudaBob's car!!.....

 

Fred's '49 Studebaker pickup....

 

Fred's daughter mashed her '99 Toyota: 

 

Richard's '70 Challenger convertible (the paint job from hell!). 

 

 

This was a '69 Charger that I did while I was "between real jobs". Real easy considering it was the same color as the '69 Charger I used to own.

Oh, and let's not forget the '70 Charger R/T that I started doing rust repair on, then the owner sold the car before it was done, and stiffed me for the bill....

This is what happens when you try to merge on the freeway with the lugnuts on the front tire of an 18-wheeler.

4 days later, good as new.

Then again, even the best of body men just can't fix everything......
