This build is for Steve and Danielle from central Cali. Steve owns a classic car fabrication shop.
He is building a blown 540 big block to install himself. This will be a finished hull and interior.

Absolutely gorgeous. With that blue being so bright did they add some metallic to the black? Think personally it’d keep the blue from drowning the black

That was my original thinking as well, but when I saw the color sample the black with pearl looked dirty. I felt like I would constantly be trying to wipe it clean. So I opted for just jet black.

LOVE the gel design and colors on this! Was getting a little tired of the swoopy gel designs which came after the tribals designs which came after checkers...

We are a full service hot rod shop in fresno/madera. We specialize in custom sheetmetal work but handle every aspect of a custom car project. Everything we do is based on referrals, word of mouth, and subcontract work for other hotrod shops.
I sent you a message with contact info or feel free to look at our instagram @theoriginalfabworx or contact me if you'd like to chat about your project.[/QUOTE]

As you can see in other photos we cover any shoe prone area with tape and paper. That goes for any boat in our shop

Being that I build high end toys of a different type I understand some times you have to break a few eggs to make an omelette.

These guys are top of there game and have continued to exceed my expectations at every turn. I know there is no way there going to accept a sub-par finished product

When the boat is complete shoes will not be allowed around it. In the mean time if they decide they need to wear golf cleats while doing there thing. I dont worry and I have complete confidence that the finished product will be nothing less then a masterpieace.
