A Class Act Auto Restoration

Instagram photos and videos

My boss at A Class Act is working on getting the 427 back into his C10 pickup this weekend. A clean truck with a fresh new mean motor. #c10 #chevy #chevytrucks #c10trucks #427 #tripower #3x2 #lowered #aclassact #customtruck #clean #autorestoration #hotrod #streettruck

Can anyone ID this rack / suspension? Swipe for more photos. This car has a bump steer complaint and I can't ID the stuff off hand. Looks like it's thoroughly modified and that's likely their issue. (Not built by us.) #streetrod #hotrod #suspension #chassisfab #car #customcar #ford #coilovers #coilover #steeringrack #custom #kustom #musclecar

A quick shot of the new A Pillars for the 1941 Sterling. They are one piece and sleeve over the wooden structure. It has to be a tight fit, and was a tight fit to make it right. #work #sheetmetal #fabrication #metalshaping #englishwheel #steel #sterlingtruck #autorestoration #restoration

Today's work is brought to you by, a lot of coffee... #work #sheetmetal #hammeranddolly #tigwelding #welding #metalshaping #vegan #califiafarms #coffee #snapon #martintools

Finished reshaping the lower section and made an entirely new upper panel around the window. The shape of the panel wasn't quite right last week. #work #sheetmetal #steel #metalwork #metalshaping #reversecurve #tigwelding #sterlingtrucks #fabrication

Making progress on this rear cab panel for the Sterling. It is only roughed in post weld out, so miles more to go. A lot of real estate to work on this darn thing. #sheetmetal #work #sterlingtrucks #autorestoration #metalshaping #planishinghammer #pullmax #englishwheel #bigpanels #tigwelding #hammerweld

Photos do nothing to display the shape of this panel. This reverse curve recess in this cab panel has been beating me up. Swipe to see more photos including what is left of the original. It needs plenty of work yet but it has come a long way. #metalwork #fabrication #sheetmetal #metalshaping #work #rustrepair #planishinghammer #pullmax #hammeranddolly

The bottom half of this cab corner on the 41 Sterling was such a mess, the best answer was to rebuild it. So onward! #work #sheetmetal #metalshaping #englishwheel #tig #tigwelding #fabrication #restoration #rustrepair

Cab corner repair today on the Sterling project. Of course I forgot to take a before shot.... but swipe right for process shots. #sheetmetal #metalwork #metalshaping #tigwelding #tig #welding #metalfinishing #shrinkerstretcher

Gave the restorer a workout today. Cleaning areas the sand blaster didn't reach on the Sterling sheet metal. Saved a fair amount of time over just a simple stripping disc. #work #sheetmetal #portercablerestorer #rotrepair #rust #powertools #tools

My coworker and Boss at A Class Act are doing a great job getting the 40 Ford Convertible together. I like the way the color looks on this dash and console. I built the under dash and console. Owner did the gauges. #work #fabrication #sheetmetal #metalshaping #streetrod #hotrod #customcar #40ford

Looks like those high school wood shop skills are gonna be coming in handy here... De-skinned most of the sterling tinge to any rotten wood and make metal work easier. #work #framing #carpenter #sterlingtrucks #restoration #woodworking #carrestoration #sheetmetal #fabrication #metalshaping #dontmakethemliketheyusedto

Next up. I doubt anyone thought back in 1941 that 77 years in the future someone would be restoring this Sterling dump truck. The bodies condition definitely doesn't say "babied". #work #sheetmetal #rustrepair #dentrepair #leadwork #fabrication #metalshaping #sterlingtrucks #truck

Now accepting orders for 1958 Corvette Trailer hitches... No not really. This is the first I've built and I don't expect to build another, ha. I may have gone a little hefty for the 500lb trailer rating but better safe than sorry. #fabrication #welding #migwelding #trailerhitch #corvette #c1corvette #chassisfab #weldingwednesday

A bit of #migmonday action. I don't work with heavy stuff that much anymore so it is fun to do from time to time. #fabrication #mig #migwelding #welding #gmaw #steel #mildsteel #chassisfabrication

Did you happen to wonder why there was a flip up plate on the Corvette? Wonder no more... #corvette #yepthatsathing #c1corvette #fabrication #work #fiberglass #towhitch #customcar #restomod

Whipped up a crossmember mount for the last part I have to fabricate on the Corvette. Making parts for other parts. #work #fabrication #welding #chassisfab #chassisfabrication #pressbrake #steel

Whipped up a deceiving complex piece on the corvette today. Mounted a GM flip license plate bracket and covered the hinge/spring mechanism under a radiused hood. #sheetmetal #fabrication #work #beadroll #gm #corvette #metalshaping #englishwheel #shrinkerstretcher #tigwelding #metalfabrication

The radiator module out of the Corvette. My time as an auto tech has me make things very serviceable. This setup can be easily disassembled in the car or removed as a package. Swipe to see more, as well as the tank mounting folks have asked about. Just a couple nutserts and bolts to the fan shroud. @wizardcooling radiator with a @deraleperformance fan. #work #wizardcooling #corvette #vette #fabrication #sheetmetal #metalshaping #beadrolling #beadroll #anplumbing #aluminumradiator #tigwelding #fabrication

Well that is a thing. Need storage in a C1 Corvette? Why not a dash storage bin? #work #sheetmetal #c1corvette #corvette #vette #upholstery #tigwelding

Back to the grind at A Class Act. Figuring out how I want to mount the Paul Atkins seats in the Vette. #work #sheetmetal #c1corvette #c1 #corvette #paulatkinsinteriors #restomod #customcar

Just a random exhaust shot from under the Corvette. Out of practice welding tubes. #exhaust #tubework #corvette #c1corvette #vband #mandrelbent #jigsawpuzzle #tig #gtaw #tigwelding #fabrication #work

1 year ago vs today. (We didn't get started for a bit.) A lot has changed since it drove off the trailer. #corvette #ls3 #restomod #fabrication #customcar #chevroletperformance #rocketracingwheels #tbt
