Crated and ready to ship

Yeah so,.. 
Some people say I get obsessive over shipping my paint work out,.
I don't care whether its 2 miles of bubble rap , a triaxle of peanuts or hand made crates and welded metal fixtures,.
I always do my best to get it back to my clients safe.
Is a couple bucks and a few hours of my time worth a fucked up paint job,...??
I THINK NOT,.!!!

Flames on a ford coupe

 A buddy of mine brought in this nice little coupe for some flames,.
he didn't want to go through the expense of re clear coating  3/4 of the car,. i said no problem,.I'll just do everything on top,. and then outline the flames with one shot lettering enamel.
I took a pic of the cars profile and drew the flames right on the pic,. this gives me good proportion to go by. then I drew the flames on the car with a stabilo pencil using the pic as a reference  .
 after the Fine line tape is down I take a piece of paper and trace the flames,. I flip the paper over and using a pounce wheel,. pounce the outline of the flame so that i can transfer the flames on to the other side of the car without trouble .     
 I spray the flame ,.blend my colors and clear coat.
 unmask ,.wet sand and buff
 prep for delivery.

A blast to the Catskills in the 31

I finally took some time from the shop last fri afternoon .
My wife and I took a blast up to the Catskill mountains . 
we got an invite from a friend that was staying at the Catskills mountain run,. a motorcycle rally that goes on every year. it turned out to be a good excuse to blow off Connecticut for a day and a half.
My wife,. nor myself,. really felt like riding over so she suggested ,.hey,. lets take the coupe out,.
Man,..I dont know,.shes been sitting  in barn for the most part of 2 years ,.just getting a blast to the shop every now and then,..
 Fuck it,.!!! lets take it,.
I pulled it out of the barn ,.changed the oil and off we went,.  
3 hrs @ 3800 and we get there ,. a little cramped up and half deft ,.but safe.
now mind you,..this is a Hotrod Not a Street rod.
steel body,.strait axle,.small block,.411's ,.on an original frame that was for the most part put together in the 60ies,.a hand full at times,. but worth every moment it gives us,..

 so glad we went,.Great getaway,. great people,.and the county side,. Beautiful..
( thanks POP...,..wishing you were here. )
it was just a nice getaway and wanted to share.
,..oh if your ever in the catskills go to
awesome caves,.!!!
