Door Lettering

Finished up the Model-T with door lettering, red variegated gold leaf on the main copy and an off white wash with speed lines on the secondary.
The owner loves it and is working hard to get it ready for a local show Sunday morning.

1934 CCM Red Bird

Pinstriped the front forks to match this all original CCM, very interesting how much bikes have not changed. Another fun one to do and more to come!

Rescue Station 231, Toronto East.

Finished all the outlines on this fire fighter panel, 23k gold engine turned by hand, fun project and an honour to do.

One more; I saw this old water skid in an antique barn 'The Red Barn' and immediately knew what I wanted to do to it.
I got it home, clean off the old damaged hardware, sanded it down, plugged the holes, urethane it and lettered it up (urethane is slippery stuff, just like glass).
This is going to my Uncle and Aunt for there cottage.

Metal Shaping Weekend

Took a little time off this weekend to learn some new metal shaping techniques and make some parts for a pedal car project I'm restoring for my kids.
Pictured is a quarter panel patch for the pedal car and a bowl or hub cap made by shrinking the metal (going to us it for Pinstriping practice).

Engine Turned Gold Leaf

New panel for one of our finest, all the respect in the world for front of the line service people.
I still have black outlines to do, but it looks so good just as is. More to come!
