SWIPE --> Now you see it, Now you don't. Made a stepped up piece to gain clearance for the @aeromotive Stealth 340 fuel pump assembly and hardlines. #hammerforming #hardlines #metalshaping #work #tigwelding #fabrication #hammerform #corvette #restomod

My boss and I got the @detroitsteelwheelco s on the pickup this morning and rolled it out. After installing the AmishAir of course. Headed home for the customer to finish up. #chevytruck #slammed #detroitsteelwheels #work #chassifab #porterbuilt #patina #customtruck #airride #amishair

This cellphone photo does this no justice. The truck looked so cool in this lighting. I need to keep my good camera on hand more. #chevytruck #porterbuilt #boydwelding #work #chassisfab #bagged #airride #patina #markquality

Finished up the stainless lines on the Corvette this morning. Too hard to photograph the master lines so have the combination valve! #hardlines #corvette #masterpowerbrakes #stainlesssteel #anplumbing #brakes #restomod

The lines I welded earlier. Farthest right line is part of the @vintageair_ kit, the other two I formed and welded. Odd angle makes them look a little off from how they really are. #hardlines #airconditioning #restomod #corvette #stainlesssteel #tig #tigwelding #work #vintageair

Just the tip(s). Decided to go a simpler direction on the exhaust tips for the Corvette bumper exit exhaust. 2.5" transitioned to handmade 4" oval tips. #corvette #exhaust #fabrication #sheetmetal #tigwelding #fab101 #makestuff #work

Rolled the Corvette out on the @rocketracingwheels Booster wheels. A little mini tubbing to fit the 255s but it sure sits nicely. #corvette #rocketracingwheels #minitub #ls3 #martzchassis #fourlink #fabrication #roller #restomod #musclecar #customcar

Ive never been a fan of the off the shelf coolant overflow bottles out there. So I fabricated this one after the Fan shroud was wrapped up. Just needs the cap bung welded on and an overflow tube added. #beadroll #beadroll #hammerforming #fabrication #sheetmetal #tigwelding #aluminum #gtaw #corvette #customcar #restomod #musclecar #notofftheshelf #jameyjordansignatureseries #artrolls #jameyjordan

Fan shroud is mostly wrapped up. A gasket and some better sanding away from done done. Nothing too fancy as there isn't much room and aiming for low key overall. #sheetmetal #electricfan #fanshroud #wizardcooling #deraleperformance #restomod #musclecar #lsx #ls3

Got the @aeromotive Stealth 340 setup in the Corvette's fuel tank and bent up some hard lines. This ought to supply the LS3 nicely. #aeromotive #fuelsystem #plumbing #hardline #corvette #vette #ls3 #lsx

Tech Tip: LS heater ports on the water pump are a good size to be tapped for 3/8" and 1/2" NPT fittings. Just remove the old ones and tap away. This is great for changing to a different style or configuration of hose. Such as here where I installed Beadlock O-Ring style fittings from @vintageair_ #lsx #lsswap #ls3 #restomod #musclecar #ls1 #ls2 #hotrodhippie #techtip #fairlyknown

Funky shapes in small areas seem to be all I ever shape. Closed up the areas around the intake I built on the Corvette. #corvette #sheetmetal #aluminum #englishwheel #sandbag #blocking #aluminum #tigwelding #work

Whipped up some mounts for the @american.autowire Highway 22 fuse panel and the @chevroletperformance gas pedal in the 58 Vette. A couple minor things off the list. #corvette #vette #ls3 #americanautowire #wiring #customcar

Peek-a-boo. The intake as viewed with the headlights removed on the right side. #fabrication #corvette #1958 #c1 #ls3 #lsx #coldairintake

Here is the intake setup for the LS3 in the 1958 Vette project. The housing contains a @knfilters panel type air filter with enough sq-inches to let the motor breath. It intakes behind the grill area for clean, dry air. Now to final weld and close off the tube are. #corvette #ls3 #lsx #badpictures #vibrantperformance #vette #coldairintake #kandnfilter

#migmonday for me. A mixture of @porterbuilt , My own welds, and @currieenterprises in this photo. I some more time behind the gun to do those PB welds justice. #migwelding #gmaw #steel #chassisfab #fabrication #fablife #welding #weldporn #porterbuilt

Got the @currieenterprises nestled in the 55 Pickup today with the @porterbuilt parts. Now to measure up for some @detroitsteelwheelco wheels and she will be just about wrapped up for me. #work #chassifab #migwelding #suspension #slammed #porterbuilt #ford9inch #55chevy #pickup #customtruck #sunexsquad #sunextools

Fitting a 4" air intake in a 58 Corvette isn't easy. Here is a sneak peek until next week. View from the grill area. #velocitystack #sortof #ls3 #lsx #corvette #fabrication

This @cbm_motorsports thermostat housing is going to make the lower radiator hose so much simpler on the Vette's LS3. #lsx #cbmmotorsports #corvette #ls3 #work

Less than a week between order confirmation and delivery on this custom width @moserengineering housing. 👍👍👍 #ford9inch #ford #moserengineering #chassisfab #fabrication #work

Making exhaust tips for the 58 Vette. Stole this idea from @vinishotrods and turned some 4" Spectre 6063 pipe into an oval. Dies were one time use because I couldn't fit any more material between the holders on the P6. A bit of hand finish work and adapting to 2.5" pipe and these will work out great. #pullmax #p6 #ovaltube #exhaust #tubework #fabrication #58corvette #corvette #aluminum #onetimeuse

Started out the day by taking an inch out of the extension tube on this @masterpowerbrakes power brake setup. Stock configuration the M/C contacted the alternator charge stud on the LS3. They can't plan for every situation unfortunately. #work #tigwelding #corvette #masterpowerbrakes #modifiedboltonparts #fabrication

Started snaking the exhaust gases out of this LS3. Everything back to the four link crossmember is tacked together save for the H Pipe. No low hanging fruit on this one, all tucked up within the rails, V-band clamped, and real mufflers. #corvette #lsx #ls3 #vette #c1corvette #c1 #magnaflow #vband #exhaust #tubework #fabrication

These @holleyperformance accessory brackets fit this C1 Corvette like they were designed specifically for it. Leaving so much more room for a fan and intake tube vs other configurations out there. #holley #ls3 #c1corvette #corvette #vette #customcar #restomod
