As the end of the year has now come and gone I hope that everyone had a good, festive, and warm holiday season. We here at Grunion Fabrication had a very busy holiday. From a before-Christmas retail rush to building a car for bike builder Paul Yaffe’s significant other in under a week (more pictures in our Vehicle Gallery), it was definatley a hectic season.
For New Years a few of us here took a small break and headed north to Snow Bowl to take advantage of the relatively new snowfall. Thanks to the great weather, we made it home with only a few sore muscles, but no broken bones. And now it is time to get back to work building cars.
Since it is now 2009, we know that no new year would be complete without setting a few New Years Resolutions. Now, I know that you are thinking, you may not be the kind of person who does resolutions because you can never follow through with them. But, we have come up with a great list of popular new years resolutions we can help you acheive in simple effective ways!
Get in Shape
Getting in shape this year will be easy and fun with our very cool iPod Handlebar Mount.
This mount is a super sturdy and simple way to encourage you to get on your bike and get in shape while still looking good.

Spend More Time with Family and Friends
This hobby that we all love so much is a great opportunity to you to take more time to spend with the people you love hanging out with. There are so many ways that our love of custom vehicles brings people together. From car shows, to car/truck clubs, we encourage everyone to get more involved this year with their local and out of state events. It is always a great time to get together and hang out working on and talking about your vehicles. We really believe that it brings family and friends together and will enrich the lives of you and your loved ones.
Organize and Optimize
This year we encourage you to do what you really want with your vehicle. There is nothing better than getting something new and exciting accomplished on your ride. There are so many new and exciting products coming out to make your vehicle better and more functional than ever. Maybe you want to upgrage your old ten switch toggle switch box to a smaller and cleaner looking switchbox
Or maybe you have some older style small valves and want to upgrage to some bigger and better SMC valves? Whatever you are trying to accomplish this year it is our goal to help you get there the most economical way possible. So give us a call or shoot us and email to pick our brains with any questions you might have and we will do our best to make sure you have a rocking 2009!

We decided to do a 4-6 chop on my Cadillac. While figuring out how much to chop it, myself and a few friends including Floyd Oldewurtel, Keith Dean, and Rick Dore decided that I should also give it a hair cut and take a inch to an inch and a half out of the crown.
After the roof was done I decided I would lead the roof and get the body work close before handing it off to my body guy to finish. Here are a few pics we took along the way.
