    Little more bumperette progress but plans have changed on how we will mount them..

    Frame mounted brackets won't be used, these will at this point not really function as a bumper but more of a decoration or art piece, we will fill in the bumper holes on the fenders and directly mount these bumperettes to the fenders, already got the supplies we need to make that happen and give it a floating appearance.

    Hopefully before too long I can say we are getting the body work and such started, probably be next year before paint?

    The Goat Wagon is named that for a reason, took my brother and his father-in-law 12 years to build, his father-in-law has owned the car since 1969, its a 1957 150 handyman station wagon. The engine, transmission, instrument cluster, wiring harness, blinker switch, wiper switch, seats, door handles, radiator, hazard button and I am sure I am missing some things, all came off of a 2006 GTO. Home built car, paint and all except the upholstery.

    Here are a few upholstery shots I took years back after it was completed.

    Oh and I was told my bumperettes are mounted on my truck fenders and about ready to grind, I need to get that stuff done and down to Ogden Chrome soon.

    50's diner inspired. The guy did amazing work but his business practices where not so good, I heard he filed bankruptcy and lost his shop in Salt Lake. A lot of bad timelines and price quotes going way over.

    So I have been trying to get some custom backspace wheels made for the truck for most of the year, first they where telling me they had material issues and didn't know when they would have material back in stock, talking to them last week the guy sounded pretty confident that they could get them made and if I didn't hear from them by Thursday to call them back, well I have called back about 6 times since last Thursday and left multiple messages with no return calls, I give up at this point, horrible customer service. Now I need to come up with a plan B and see if there are any wheel companies that can make me some aluminum wheels or something, kind of throws a wrench in what I had planned but maybe I can find a look I like elsewhere.

    I don't know anyone who can help you but I do know getting materials right now can be a challenge. Good Luck is all I can offer! 8-)

    I work in large scale manufacturing so I understand, communication would be nice, I did finally get an email today saying he is waiting for a response from the shop and he hopes to have them ready early September. I really have my heart set on these wheels, I'm going for a certain look, you'll all have to wait and see the final result.

    Couple more random photos I took last weekend, 4 of the vehicles we took got a plaque, I drove dads old 40 coupe that we have had since 1964 and the biggest inspiration for my pickup.
