Started Frankenstein, a 1969 Firebird convertable yesterday for the first time. Owner is sitting behind the wheel. It is a loud and mean machine pushing at least 600 HP, it will be dyno tuned eventually and we will find out the true HP. It has a Vortech supercharged LS1 stroked to a 383 c.i. . I fabricated all the tubing for the water cooled inter-cooler system, which will be painted orange. I wanted to finish all the mechanical work prior to doing the front end bodywork due to all of the custom fabrication work needed. I did not want to scratch or damage any of the sheet metal or paint. Next on the agenda, finish the body work and paint the car hugger orange.
Today I painted a golf cart body for my good friend and customer John Pennington owner of Pennwick Custom Golf Carts. Anyway, it is a really cool copper/orange candy over a silver metallic base. Here are two pictures. Can’t wait to see this one together and in the sun. The paint is all MATRIX brand, supplied by my good friend Ken Ott at Discount Body Shop Supplies. Ken can hook you up with some really awesome colors and clear coats.
