    4yrs ago I went back to school to become a certified welder mig & stick. In Feb i went back again to get my tig ticket.

    I've spent the last 6 months working at a custom hotrod/musclecar shop.

    The first thing i worked on was a 66 mustang fastback, I replaced some body/floor panels, tubbed the rear end & made motor mounts for a 302 cobra jet.

    Next was a 69 chev cheyenne pickup, chopped the frame to convert it to short box, boxed & c-notched, installed air ride suspension, cupped the front control arms so the front crossmember sits 1/2" on the ground, also sealed up the floor, replaced the cab corners and made motor mounts for the 5.3 vortec.

    Then there was the 69 camaro, did 3" tubs for the 275/45R20's, installed 4 bar system, shortened the Ford 9" axle, installed the full tubular front subframe and air shock suspension, shaved handles, marker lights, made custom hood scoops, side exit exhaust, tail spolier and motor mounts for an LS7.

    After that it was the project from hell, a 65ish mercury comet caliente. I laid that bitch out:

    Cut out all the factory suspension (front & rear), front is now mustang 2 IFS, rear is triangulated 4 bar with shocks and air bags all around.

    Replaced alot of the floor, sealed up the large gash/hole in the tunnel:

    Filled all the body holes, patch panels everywhere. i was kind of getting sick of work on it, but then i finished the suspension, we took it off jack stands and saw for the first time how low it was. It was all worth it.

    Last week i finished building this entire rolling chassis for a 1932 Ford Hi-boy Roadster. There's way to much stuff to list on this one, but it's part of a live build for Performance World in Toronto this coming march. I'm pumped.

    In a year or two when i get a new daily driver i'm gonna twin turbo my 97 Acura 3.0CL and make it rear wheel drive with an IRS, possibly from a 300ZXTT.

    My plates are DAVZILLA so i'll paint it army green with a bunch of CF bits here and there.

    :bowdown: Some awesome projects there.. so jealous. I wish I had the skills to finish my project myself rather than wait for my mate to have spare time here and there and do bits and pieces.

    WOW !! Really nice work. 1 question thou, on the camaro, you added a lip for a smoothed in wing. With the trunk open before you finished there was a open gap on the sides. Did you fill that in? I'm sure you did but I couldn't tell from the finished pic with the trunk closed.

    Really nice work again and i like the rear of the camaro. Very nicely done. :bowdown:
