This is the new shop, it contains most of our tooling and alot more space than the old shop,the old shop measures a miniscule 7 feet by 13 feet(a bedroom in my home). The new shop attatched to my home is 18 by 31 ALOT bigger!!!I sprayed a piece up behind my Ironhead for Chris at blue collar moto,as well as the rest of us blue collar mother fuckers. the shop is heated by a really old Ben Frank iron wood burning stove. In the backround is my shop help Jeremy he is a hard working mofo,he has been working with me for about 6 months,we previously fabbed on lots of street race cars,and legit drag cars.He is a very accomplished fabricator and wrench,Thanks for checking out the blog and just a reminder... my new # is 951 217 8814 SLIM

This is Mike Muzzys 1966 ford falcon club wagon(a passenger econoline) It came into slims fab with major damage on every panel, every wheel lip had to be hammered and dollied(one had to be cut out and replaced),the left rear corner had poor access so it was cut out dollied then re fitted,the drivers side was smashed in at the deepest point 7 inches, that side wascut out and replaced, the hinges on the side cargo doors were torn back from a sideswipe accident which damaged the doors as well s surrounding panels, the door jambs were cut out and replaced as well as the doors.the front face got hammer and dollie treatment,the whole van every inch was then blocked by hand and primed then painted with satin"army man green"mixed by me! The clutch,exauhst,front swaybar bushings were replaced. we gutted the interior and installed a rer seat which leaves access for the slimsfabbed wheel chock, the rear seat is also quick release. the front passenger area is coated in satin black the cargo area is coated in textured black and the floors are bed lined thru out! currently waiting on a few window seals to complete our job, hope you like it muzz it was a fuck load of work( work is what we live for at SLIMSFAB) we as AMERICANS are lucky to have that right!
