Autometer 68 Camaro

My brother has a 68 Chevy Camaro that he is getting back on the road.  He has been doing a lot of body metal work and its ready to see the day light.  I had to do some wiring and hook up some new gauges.  He had bought an aftermarket Covan dash. He bought the Autometer pro light series.  Check them out they look bitchen. They also have red bulb covers to give them that Darth Vader look. The car is flat black and healthy too. Here's the pictures.

Car Club Plaque's

We have three new club members and I have to dish out 3 new plaques.  I have an original from the late 50's that my brother in law got for me. The one's I'm fixing are from an original master from "Speed Gems" this plaques were made by "O'Brien's Truckers ".  As you can see I have to start from raw cast that has to be ground and resurfaced to a smooth touch. Then wet sand before I start to polish to an almost mirror finish.  Check out the work.

I still have to clean them up and paint the back ground black.

5 Lug conversion

This weekend my buddy Randy, Lolo, Dan and I got to work on his 63 Chevy fleetside pick up. He has been rolling on stock 6 lug drums and need some stopping power with 5 lug to bolt up different wheels. Supremes,& Tru Spokes or any other 5 lug wheels. The kit comes complete with mounting brackets, loaded calipers, rotors, bearings, hoses, master cylinder and booster. For the rear it consisted of new axels, 5 lug drums and differential spider gears. Spent two full days and got everything buttoned up. Bolted on the supreme 's an took it for a cruise.  Brakes way better now and looks better too.  Check out the pictures.
