Hot-Rod Days

Vintage hot-rods have always had a warm spot in our hearts – such unique stylish that has not been seen in many years.

When we met Doug Marshall who owns a metal fabrication shop and builds vintage hot-rods – the gears immediately began to turn after some inspiration from these vintage machines.

Within a few days Doug had the Toucan’s fenders and began working his metal magic.

First some measurements.

Then some cutting.

Some beautiful metal plates were made to fill in the MINI side scuttles.

Fired up.

Tacked into place.

Beginning of the fill.

Filled with real metal.

No bondo or filler needed here – true metal art.

The hot-rod inspiration begins with hand punched 3″ louvers.

All done.
