The most wonderful thing about fabrication is the expression of someone's uniqueness through the creation of something unique. Today's feature is definitely unique and an opportunity to give a shout out to one of our fabricator brothers from across the pond. Matt Urch is a welder/fabricator based in Somerset, UK.   Matt wanted to build something unique as an advertisement for his business and attract attention for his new business. We think he's done that, without a single shadow of a doubt. The car is a 1953 Ford Popular, built by Ford UK from 1953 to 1962. At the time of...

There's something about a wildly unique build that just gets us going over here and today we're bringing you something that's definitely unique. Meet Don Abenante. Oh, and meet his '69 Camaro, pre-chopping it up to make room for a wild drivetrain. He's 30/m/FL (yeah, you just got A/S/L'd), a mechanical engineer and a big fan of old iron.  Oh, and you can't overlook the striking resemblance to Tony Angelo of Hot Rod Garage and Formula D fame.  Sorry Don, couldn't continue without pointing that out..... Enough of my dated corny jokes.  Let's let Don tell you a little bit...

Or is there truly a quantifiable difference in performance per dollar between the two materials? (Agency Power's beautiful Titanium exhaust for a Ferrari) First of all, titanium is beautiful.  There's no denying that.  But it comes with a hefty price increase over your typical stainless system.

If there's one thing that can be guaranteed about an experienced fabricator, it's that his or her signature becomes apparent throughout their work.   Fabrication is a precise art that involves both motor skill and intelligent design.  Through the development of these skills and pursuit of what an individual's idea of "good looking" is, a style appears. So what happens when a skilled fabricator builds furniture?  We took to Pinterest again specifically looking at tables built by fabricators and the results didn't let us down. This handful of images just barely scratches the surface of what we thought was awesome....

Today, information is instant.  We stream our favorite TV shows, pause the commercials, record and watch them at our convenience.  We can watch a whole season’s worth of our favorite show in the matter of a single night’s binge.  Who remembers the weekend automotive mechanic shows such as Shadetree Mechanic? There was once a time, for those of us old enough to remember, where a phone call meant standing within cord’s reach of the home phone.  Catching our favorite show meant scheduling our whole day around it.  Working on a car we were unfamiliar with meant a trip to the...
