From a recent trip around the East Cape, North Island, NZ.



Might have left the trip on the beach a little late. 10 mins later I wouldn't have made it. As it was I needed to ride through some waves.

That scene looks all too familiar to me from days gone by. Including the pushrod stuck in the little tophat thingy that fits in the throwout bearing.

Sorry to dump a bunch of pics at once, but I have been super busy, and have not had a chance to post in quite a while.
My nephew, and I have been working on putting an aluminum V-8 into his little Nissan 240SX. this is his first car project, so it has been fun seeing him do so many things for the first time, like using the lathe to build these motor mounts.






I recently made an aluminum tank for a customer. it's not exactly a piece of art (like a hand hammered Manx tank) but it turned out pretty good.






I am finishing a sub frame, exhaust, battery box, ETC. for another customer. I am kind of liking the looks of it, so thought I would post a few pics.

Holy crap those are pretty. It's been tough enough to find someone around here to do a little aluminum welding ... and I'm not even super picky about the pretty welds .... ('cause I'm one HELL of a grinder )
