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.
Just stopped by Go Kat Go and picked up the Jan.-Feb.-Mar. 2008 issue (Number 28) of rolls & pleats magazine. The orange Merc that we did for Rick Dore was in the pictures from the La Roadster Show. It even mentions the shop along with Kevin’s name in it next to the names of Rick Dore and John Aiello. Thanks rolls & pleats.
"Terrific tangerine color on this Rick Dore Merc, which features body work by John Aiello and suspension work by Kevin Brumfield (Grunion Fabrication)."
While looking for a new car to build, Todd Jubert owner of the The Interior Shop told me a friend of his whom they call Uncle Bob, had a ‘41 Cadillac Sedanette sitting at his house for sale. I gave him a call and he said it would be a solid car to start with. I talked to my friend Rick Dore about the car and we decided to go take a look at it. After inspecting the car I decided to buy it. This is what it looked like right where we found it.
