We have been busy at the shop, Had a 08 C6 corvette in the shop for repairs, this was a car that came from another shop that couldnt get it going. It came with a Edelbrock Super charger and had some under carriage damage that required repair. We are waiting for fenders on the dolly trailer to finalize it, we took the bus window out and shaved off some size to get it to fit better. We also have a 93 camry wreck that we are fixing for a customer, found a donor car and have managed to get it back together. We are starting work on the 59 vette as it needs a new radiator support fitted and painted. Also working on misc fabrication parts for some race boats / cars and others.

New coil over QA1 shocks, mounts, new HP series carb, new distributor, new coil - dyno tuned to just over 300hp to the tires. Also finished a disk brake conversion on the Thunderbird. Still working on the 59 vette, some minor paint to finish on the underside, then we move on to the radiator support replacement. Fixed a 61 lincoln for a customer which was towed in on the hook. Working on a Mercruiser Small block chevy for a fishing boat install. Also, now working on a air bagged dolly trailer for the Mechanical Animal - this will be a road worthy dolly trailer, looks great! Also managed to get our security system installed as well with 8 CCD HD cameras in the shop and outside.

It has been a while since the last update, So here are some things we are doing. The Malibu is running and now has a big block in it - it is now sitting in the new shop and needs some finalization to be road worthy. We have also built new brackets for
the green with envy boat for steering. We also fabbed up some diverter angle checkers, rebuilt the Jet-Away for this years racing, Completely reassembled the jet pump for racing and checked all tollerences of the impeller - detailed all of the surfaces of the inducer. Created a block off plate for the green boat to allow for stopping the boat from going backwards while in reverse. We also have changed the foward and reverse on the boat to be all air actuated.
