The Pickle has taken our attention like Elvis had been with us, and deserving as him the Pickle has been through a pile of mechanical stuff very fast so getting everything to hold hands and sing together was the goal. The motor trimmed out, detailed up and our short block made us proud …. a big ole honkin industrial hunk of meat! Now THAT’S what I’m talkin bout!
The same Melling bump stick, lifters and pistons but with it’s new butt we have hopes it will make it to many a food truck gig. The Pickle had to look good heading back to Atlanta so we gave the beast a wash job Triumphant, Jared and Andy pose in front of the beast that gave us sooooo much challenge and for that last look as it pulls away from the shop…… get on it Andy… go sell some food!
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< NEWS FLASH >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
“Elvis” made it to Atlanta with no issues!!!!!! YeeeeHaaaaa….
Thanks for it all… was a fun one… and now we get the “Sundae” back onto the lift for it’s operation of a freash Manny Trans, our roller cam 403 and the rest of Nic’s up to date mechanicals… if you will remember, this is the “full Mechanicals” project we started up some 90 days ago.
. Phillip will be all over Nic’s drive train when he gets in. Junior snagged a fresh visor to get painted up so as soon as we get the drive train in it goes back inside for it’s finals.
So as you can see, the team effort we have put together outcomes quality work, quickly which saves us all money! We have cvut down out backlog over the last year by 50%! That’s unheard of in this business …. and we’re getting better with the quality folks we have working with us…
Hey JD, here is the built up top right panel for your new Mac Daddy dash.
The 4 in line vertical white rectangles are USB ports, 2 chrgers with the 3rd for linking an Apple and the 4th for an Andriod cell phone. Nic had both and this Pioneer double DIN takes them both for full screen access to each device…. very cool! I’ll be focusing in on JD’s coach more here…. stay tuned…

The guys are showing up… 10 degrees warmer today but 47 is still flippin cold to me! Finally for one of you guys out there itching to get in on the ground level on a GMC with alote going for it…. After being used, loved and garage kept for 25 years, the second owners want to find a young family to bequeath their motorhome too. It was “The Green Machine”, a fixture in Macon Ga. it’s entire life. Going to a football games, the Green Machine was always a fixture. Looks … well it had to keep the image of green. It has an early ideration of our quad bag system that needs some updating, a Honda EV-6010, a fresh Dometic low profile Pinguine roof AC, a maserator system and decades of provenance and love. What is my offer for your next family member? We’re looking for a young family that wants to get out there.
