Have moved!

Hello all, I am no longer working at Triple R Restoration. I am now working at Valdez Painting in Lindon, Utah. Tony Valdez is my new employer. Come by and see us anytime. The Company is expanding into the auto restoration arena and I will be in charge of all the auto restoration work for the company. We are conveniently located at 339 South Geneva Road, next to the freeway, just east of Timpanogos Harley Davidson. Here is our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Valdting-Inc/141137682607083

Frankenstein is painted!

Here are all the parts after bodywork was completed, prior to primer. This shows the extent of work done to each part. Keep in mind these were all new aftermarket parts, as you can see they were not very straight (but rust free!).

Sorry, the parts and car has been painted for awhile. Have not taken time to update. Here are some pictures of the parts and body painted before assembly. Check out those door gaps :)) They don’t come from the factory like that. I welded all the gap edges, then grind to fit perfectly.

Frankenstein is ALIVE.

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.

Cool color painted today

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.
