Default Carnage Crew Garage A few builds

Thought would show some more pics of what has been going on in the shop lately.

First up is the 1941 ford that is getting a complete suspension rebuild and some new floor boards.


First few picks of the rear suspension and brackets. Most of the rear suspension fab is done and will start on the front tomorrow.

Next up is a custom gas tank for my new project. It had a sportster tank on it and it looked ok but any one can have a sportster tank. SO here is what I did. Hope to have all the fab work done on this bike by thanksgiving. We will see if I can pull it off.

Next up is my pops 1957 chevy sedan delivery. Man this car has been around for a long time. Jasons dad owned it when we were kids and I remember riding around in it back then. At that time it was gasser style and I loved it. My dad bought it when I was 16 and it was my daily driver for about a year part of the time it was lifted then one day pops said we were going to lower it. I tried to talk him out of it but down it went. Well 15 year later it is getting another face lift.

Next up on the chopping block is a one owner 1959 chevy el camino. This car was bought brand new in 1959 by my friends granddad. It has never been changed in any way all the parts are there the only thing that has been changed are the tires. It was driven until some time in 1975 and then parked in the field, no one noes why (granddad passed years ago and dad last year so no one to ask). It is pretty weird and has some weird options . Like the interior I thought it would be red to match the too tone but it is a blueish sliver.

Any way it is going to get a frame off mild restoration this winter. The plan is to have it done by spring so that the owners grandmother can take it for a spin.

The first few picks show the worst of the body damage. Which happend a few years back when a farm hand park his truck up hill from it with out the park brake and it rooled down the hill and in to the side.

Awesome work! Damn 1959 Elcamino was my first car. No sink roll 1st was a pain in the ass and I was always bending push rods in that old 348 hump head motor. Wish I never sold it.

I wish this one had the 348. This one sports a 283 and a power glide.

I showed the bike to my wife a few weeks ago and told her the story behind it.... She hates you now Aaron! She is so over the Super Moto bike and wants another "cool" bike! I keep telling here to get a job at HD so we can have something sweet to ride.

You liked the black sportster tank better?

The camino is going all back to original white and red with the same blue silver interior.

Got another project that showed up today. It is just here for some minor work that didn't get done before it went to paint. SO this weekend I am going to tub the fire wall to get some more clearance for the front tire when the suspension is down.
