Every year I try and make it to the Chino Air Show. It’s run by The Planes Of Fame museum at the same airport. For as long as I can remember they have been known for their amazing collection and the fact that they fly them. They have the only Zero in the world with its original motor. One of the Northrop flying wing prototypes. The YP59A prototype. The list goes on. Here are a few shots from this weekend.
You made it to the end!
Bill just opened a new shop in Daytona. It’s located at 726 N. Beach St, Daytona, Fla. Best of luck and thanks for the business!!!
I was able to see my buddy Marty’s indian up at the David Mann Chopperfest this past weekend. He did 99% of the work himself. This is his first paintjob. It is even more incredible in person. Im going to cover a cut down buddy seat for him for when he wants to ride his girlfriend with him. The solo pictured I did a while back.
The usual suspects, McGoo, Renato, Alex, and I have been knocking out the sheet metal on the KZ. I wish I had a brake, shear, and tig but an endless supply of cut off wheels, c clamps, hammers, a one inch thick steel fab table, a mig, and my retard strength is what we have. Now for mounting, welding, and more grinding. I figured out a color scheme finally along with foot controls and a few other things. Now to make it all.
Born Free this year was much different than any other show I’ve done. I had customers picking up work and past customers stop by to show me work I’ve done for them. Almost all my work gets mailed out so it’s nice to be able to hand someone their finished project. It was really cool seeing how great everything is holding up. The wallet with the skulls and water had been to Iraq, Germany, and a few other places since it left my hands. I also had many friends come by the booth and hang out for a few minutes. I enjoyed visiting with everyone and I’m looking forward to the next time.
