Part 2 of the 2019 fun was also getting set up with @wrightcncusa 5x10 Industrial plasma table to further compliment the long game here at Coachworks. This table has been crucial to getting not just the prototype work knocked out but also allowing the inventory to be built up by 1 dude......or at least until the move started ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Between the @wrightcncusa and @automec_inc products, the future is most certainly going to involve many more machine additions to the collection.

CNC back gauge

Fall 2019 certainly was the start of an incredible, 3 part, 14 month adventure ๐Ÿ˜

1st) Working with the incredible folks at #Automec_Inc to solve the challenges of making an old outdated mechanical press brake competitive with more modern manufacturing volumes.

Relating their #cnc backguage on this old Iron, to taking an old #streetrod or #musclecar and dressing it up with ๐Ÿ”ฅ breathing abilities of a #protouring build......was a night and day difference to the efficiency of, not only the manufacturing side of #Coachwerx but also the to custom fabrication services as well! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

ANY Streetrod shop in the country that battles the age old challenge of making #customcar building more efficient while working with the old world iron that's got soul, while maintaining quality and freedom of creativity...... certainly needs to give 'em a call !!!

Our Build with a Pro option has been fun. Working on & off alongside the DIy'er implementing as many unique ideas we can and helping them grow their skills along the way!
๐Ÿ™Œ

Here we're working with DIY contractor Marty on a low profile 150 gallon insulated and heated underbelly fresh water storage system.
๐Ÿ˜

Hiring us in the early phases to do what we do best.....clean custom design of the system.
๐Ÿ‘Œ

Then we got the project rolling to a point where he felt comfortable to take over......saving him $$$ on the labor costs of custom work while answering questions and guiding him along the way.
๐Ÿค‘

If you're not affraid to get dirty but lack indoor space and or equipment, the abilities to visualize a custom design or skills to tackle the technical areas, hit us up to see how sharing the workload with Coachworks can get you in to that wild custom rig while keeping the full build fun, educational & keep cost down!

Killer 16โ€ raise we just wrapped up for @c4ldayton!
๐Ÿ› 
We love the look of these CEโ€™s with a medium raise like this!
๐Ÿ˜
The front axle is plenty far forward to allow for an exceptional approach angle and the raise is moderate enough to allow for access to more remote areas.
๐Ÿ”
We worked on this bad boy day and night to get it done in just 3 weeks!
๐Ÿ—“
It wasnโ€™t easy as we are the only builder that uses solid rivets and we used several thousand of them on this raise!
๐Ÿ’ช
Our dedication to using solid rivets is just one of the many things that sets our builds apart from the rest. What makes your rig stand out from the rest?

@schutzengelskoolie has got his 8 inch roof raise all buttoned up on his 2010 Bluebird RE!
๐Ÿ’ช
Itโ€™s very subtle! Can you see where he raised it?
๐Ÿง
With his fresh coat of paint he now looks normal and not so much like a school bus!
๐ŸšŒ
His moderate roof raise helps him blend in and travel to more adventure locations than a huge raise. All while providing plenty of space for 4 season insulation and head room!
๐Ÿ”
Whatโ€™s your guysโ€™ main priority, more space inside or being able to travel farther?

A full size FE like this with a 20โ€ raise and a 5.9 #Cummins typically will get 10 mpg while empty!

We like to stay as light as possible. This gives us the most range & mobility for the furthest adventures!

This once full size CE is now incredibly peppy!
๐Ÿš€
Itโ€™s total length is 7.5 feet shorter and the living space is 11 feet shorter so needless to say it is A LOT lighter! Its 5.9 Cummins & Allison 2000 series tr**ny spins the tires like there ainโ€™t nothing on the frame!
๐Ÿ™Œ
We are rebuilding this bad boy from the ground up to be as light as absolute possible without sacrificing structural integrity because on the road weight is the enemy!
๐Ÿ’ช
At Coachworks we focus on strength by design and do not rely on material thickness because for every pound saved is another pound you can haul.
๐Ÿ˜‰
Anyone of you have a hunch as to what we are up to now?

What kind of #AdventureRig are you guys rocking?
๐ŸšŒ

07/28/2019

Time to increase the power to weight ratio on this bad boy!
๐Ÿฅณ
Itโ€™s 5.9 #Cummins was already more than adequate but now it will be a real hoss as itโ€™s final weight will be about half itโ€™s GVWR.
๐Ÿ’ช
We pride ourselves in weight reduction as excess weight can lead to: reduced mpg, increased drivetrain/suspension wear, higher probability of getting stuck, limited mobility when traveling smaller roads & bridges and the list goes on.
๐ŸšŒ
Coming from a custom vehicle background we aim to make every rig as high of performance as possible to ensure years of dependable and heavy use for maximum adventures!

07/23/2019

Cutting the first hat channel on a new roof raise is always the best feeling!
๐Ÿ˜
When using an angle grinder, youโ€™ll want to watch out for the blade getting pinched, causing kickback.
๐Ÿ› 
You want to do this after your jacks have pressure on them to avoid getting the blade pinched once the hat channel is fully cut.
๐Ÿ˜ณ
If the blade gets pinched it will likely kick back violently!
๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Whatโ€™s the best feeling youโ€™ve had on your build?
๐Ÿค”

๐Ÿค˜
Pro tip: When angle grinding be sure to aim your sparks away from windows and mirrors.
๐Ÿ’ฅ
The sparks will melt the glass and leave it looking like mini comets hit it.
โ˜„๏ธ
If you must angle your sparks at windows or mirrors then be sure to cover them up. We suggest a welding blanket.

Bus life ever!! Congrats thats awesome
Hi! I want to upgrade my ride to be as smooth as possible. Shocks? What's the best strategy?
Just wanted to let you guys know - there are a lot of people on Skoolie Nation that do not have a clue about raising roofs. So far so good on not getting kicked off for referring them to you guys - but I know at some point... Anyways - Wondered if you looked at group and found a way to get in it ?? I will keep posting links for your videos, etc until they stop me !! This is important because some think it is "just raise it and weld" !!!! Could be very scary !!! Anywhooooo.......Hope all is well there in CO !! Was 15 Below Zero here in NH yesterday (-53 at Cannon Mountain !!) and doing a lot of inside work = research, E Bay sales, Fabricating smaller things, etc. Take care - Bob from NH. @bobsbuslife #Lastwinterhere #Sedonadreaming # Thisfallsouthwest #skoolieconversion
Such an amazing place!!
I never did thank u guys for looking out for me and my family when we needed a place to park our bus. You guys are awesome and doing great work on the projects. Thanks again for everything!!!!
