Shop Update, New Labor Rate and New Hrs.
Been awhile since the last post. Been working on a variety of interesting jobs thoughout the last part of winter and spring.We have been working on parts for a traditional chopper build that is going to California for Born Free-6 Which is a custom motorcycle show which features amature builders who are hand picked to show. Now don't let the "amature" fool you. The people involved in this in my opinion are far more talented than what you see on TV. This is my second year involved in this and it gets cooler every year.Also been working on another "barn find" 32 Ford 3 window coupe. We again built many of the details for this car. We built the aircleaner assembly for the fuel injection unit.(this was documented in a prior post) We built a horn housing for a vintage indian motorcycle horn. We are finishing a Tach for the steering column. The mech. is a vintage corvette tach. These tachs where dash mounted. Customer wants a column mount so we are machining a pod for it that appears vintage. Some of the early construction photo's are posted here. Compare to later when it's done. This car is also going to California for the 50th LA Roadster show on fathers day weekend.
As of June 1, 2014 are labor rate will increase from $50 to $65. We have tried to keep this rate as low as we can but we just can't do it anymore. Hopefully it won't cause any problems. Also we have set hrs as of June 1. Monday-Tuesday-Wedsday, 4pm-9pm. Saturday 10am-1:30pm. Call (630)710-3977 for information or a job quote.
