A guy came to SEMA and got one of my new books and later emailed me and told me about this forum and that I should visit it, I was on the Ol’ Skool Rodz forum but this one is much more professional..

Yes it is a '58 it belongs to a friend and we are going to use it in a video we are producing on fiberglass repair for Eastwood Company we also have a Batmobile we are building for someone else. The rest of the cars are mine, we do not do a lot of retail work, just stuff for movies and a few private collectors. Most of the money I make is from the books, the videos and the tools that we make, it is hard to make money off the cars, if you what to do it right, because it just takes too long and no one, (make that very few) can afford a job done right. So I try to do the job at cost of below cost and make my profit off the ancillaries, such as the tapes and videos. You have to do the cars because you love your job or you will not do it well.

We are just starting the PIXAR job and I get to cut a new Porsche in half, (whoopie!!!) I will try to send photos as we proceed down here on the project. I have to find out what I am allowed to show and what I can not show, first.

Default Fear

When my dad bought a lexas and paid $58,000 for it i had to drill some 1 inch holes in the door jamb to mount door poppers for him as he is handicaped. a moment of fear went through me as i started drilling on this brand new car. I cant imagine cutting a new porsche in half. Of course if the owner was there while i did the cutting it would be hard not to say

opps. I guess thats just the sick side of me.:twisted:

You do kinda get used to it after (who knows how many cars) we have cut up for films. but still, there is that bit of uneasiness in the pit of your stomach as the blade hits the paint for the first cut, after that, it is just smooth cutting.
I will take plenty of photos and video as we cut the car.
