We completed the resto-rod on
this awesome í57 Chevy Pickup. The work, as we
see so often, had been begun by one shop, sent
to another and another, and the customer ended
up enlisting our help to finish it up. We headed
to Ashland, Oregon with our six car enclosed semi
tractor trailer outfit and picked her up and dropped
The work on this one was very
good, compared to many that we finish up. About
20% of our work is comprised of completing work
started somewhere else. We are very good at it,
and are happy to help. These kinds of jobs require
a special approach to gathering up the parts that
are supplied with the project, finding good solutions
to problems where others have given up, and just
trying to figure out what the first builder was
thinking! Itís not easy, but somebody gets the
awesome chance to do it!
Fist thing was the mechanical.
The engine was partly installed, but several things
were left hanging. The electrical, too, was in
disarray. You can see the Dakota Digital dash
that we installed, but the earlier builder had
already begun the wiring.
One awesome detail on this job
was the frame. It was already complete when we
got the truck, and it was beautiful. You can see
how nice it looks in the photos here.
We completed the installation
of remote door operators, the electric windows,
and finished up the interior. The first shop had
a good start, we just had to find the correct
materials to finish up and complete it.
The work order on this job was
12 pages long. Iím saving you a lot of detail
with my brief description here. Feel free to call
or email and I can explain the job in careful
detail with you. If youíre in the same position,
trying to get a project finished up, Iíll even
give you all the details of this job, including
costs, of every single item.
