I just got finished welding in all the parts that my apprentice Scott fabbed up for the dash in the C10 we are building for Jon B. Now the double din Stero/GPS/Car Play/Kitchen Sink will fit in as well as the vintage air controller. Scott's fab skills are starting to shape up. #westcoastautocraft #c10 #roadstershop #protouring #chrismiranda

Ferdinand Porsche is rolling around in his grave. Finishing up Ken Wills's Porsche Boxter. We squeezed a Chevy LS3 in this #PorscheBoxterS. You will not find a better engine swap anywhere. The quality is better then if Porsche themselves did the install. What a rocket ship! All of this power in a mid engine car and the icing on the cake is that after the full intsall it is 40 lbs lighter then the original engine! 😮 Now comes the fun part. I get to put the first few hundred miles on it shaking it down. Should be a fun weekend. #westcoastautocraft #chrismiranda #lsswap #carlife #outlawporsche #brakingtherules

And so it begins.

I am always in awe of Pamela's talent. She has such a great eye and the much needed fortitude to satisfy her eye.

"If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself." ~Ferdinand Porsche

My handmade hood-skin for Steve's Pre A 356 is all shaped up and fit. Just a little planishing left before I wrap it around the hood frame. This was a tricky bugger. I used combination of Pullmax thumbnail dies, Erco 476 shrinker, whiting power hammer, and english wheel. Now to go make the hood-frame.

My apprentice Scott is building a pullmax die so we can make the inner structure for the Pre A 356 hood we are building. Here is the shape template made out of chip board. Next he will cut the shape out of 3/4 steel plate on the bandsaw which will give us a negative and a positive die.

Come see our good friend rapper Mickey Avalon with us at Slims in San Francisco. Mickey is a die hard hot rodder. He has gone through one of my metal shaping classes and he comes and works in the shop periodically on his model A roadster we are building.

I think this is pretty good for a days work. Unfortunately like I tell people, the last 20% takes 80% of the time. Long way to go.

"The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do." ~B. F. Skinner

The Erco 476 has been down for like 4 months. Too busy to deal with it. My right leg has gotten a good enough work out for the year. Time to put the new motor in this thing.

"I'll take fifty percent efficiency to get one hundred percent loyalty." ~Samuel Goldwyn

Johnny has been with me for 9 years. When he came in he was a "detailer". I spent several years teaching him how to sand and polish my paint jobs. I knit picked him to death. I can not believe he withstood all of the mental abuse I put the poor guy through. A month ago his grandma passed away and he needed some time off to greave. You do not realize how much you rely on someone until they are not around. He is back and doing what he does best. Today he is color sanding Troy San Jose's outlaw 911 I painted. Welcome back Johnny! Thank you for your loyalty and hard work.

80 hours later Pamela has color sanded the 23 window bus we are restoring for Gary Farrell inside and out. She sanded down 8 coats of Spies Hecker Clear in 800, 1000, 1200, and 1500 grits all by hand. Now she will do a 4 stage polish. That is a whole lot of surface to do show quality.

The original front end was such a mess with an inch of bondo and such i did not notice that the awesome repair done in the 70's required the body-man (i use this term loosely) to cut about an inch off the front of the hood. Do i repair this or make a new hood? Decisions decisions....

When this bed was just an idea in my head it was interesting to see the looks on my clients faces when I tried to explain my vision. I had a rendering done and they were sold. Now that it is taking form is steel everyone seems to love it. The best part of my job is to watch these projects take life. #56fordf100 #f100 #fordf100 #customtruck #westcoastautocraft #chrismiranda #hotrod #customcarbuilder #automotiverestoration #metalfab #metalshaping #metalporn #coachbuilt #coachbuilder #erco #pullmax #powerhammer #yoder #whitingquickwork #cpplanishinghammer #prolineplanishinghammer #englishwheel #millerdynasty350 #metalace #tigwelding

I cant say enough about my new apprentice Scott. He has been with me for 6 months now and we are getting to point where i do not need to explain things too much. He just picks up in what I want by my groans and facial expressions! 😂 He is a very talented guy. Just don't tell, need him to keep his humility for a while. Here he is drill holes for cleco fasteners to mock up the handmade fender on the Pre A 356 Porsche we are restoring.
