Cam and I headed up to the swap meet at Manfeild yesterday. Unfortunately Mike and Woody couldn't join us due to work commitments.

A big event - but mostly car parts and a huge display of custom cars - including Shaun's Lincoln [It's for sale if you're keen]. Only one chopper on display fom Hotrod Heaven in P. North.

Bumped into Doug and his mate Hemi and then hooked up with Shaun and went back to his shed. A couple of beers and a chat about Shaun's projects etc.

We then jumped into the Lincoln and cruised down to the local hot rod shop where there were beers and a bbq. A quick look at some of the projects on the go there, back to Shaun's, then hit the road back to Wellington.

On the way back we stopped and looked at a rat bike - owned by a guy who runs the coffee carts in Otaki... some interesting detailing on it, including a paua shell-inlay fuel cap, jockey shift etc.

Many thanks to Shaun for hosting us and for the spin in the low-riding Lincoln. Hope your head's not too sore after last night.

Pics below: Shaun's Lincoln; Shaun and Cam (Cam on Shaun's daily runner Sporty); Shaun's Trans Am; The Otaki Rat Bike.

Sorry King Kong, will have to include you on the next one.

Anyone got any ideas for what happens next? Nothin much in my shed to see... except some basic tools, a grinder and two bikes (one of which only goes sometimes and the new old one I could have put a match to this morning when it wouldn't start!!)

Could always ask Correy Wyatt if he's up for a visit... he does some interesting stuff. Customising bikes in his own style, custom sunglasses etc, Also he lives not far from me!

Cheers cheers

That's a brilliant idea EEL, I'm sure Correy would be up for it. Let us know how ya get on mate.
Check some of Correy's stuff out here. http://benteyewear.com/index.php
He gave me a pair of his welder series Sunny's Coolest Sunny's Ive ever seen the frames are made from Aluminium welding rods. I'll post a pic of them tomorrow.

Well I guess I've failed. Sorry guys.

I haven't been able to pin Correy down to organise a raid on his shed. Have left messages etc, but no response. Maybe he's just not keen.

Anyone have a plan 'B'? Maybe a visit to Mike's excellent build and Cam can bring some more examples of his tanks?

Don't be so hard on yourself Eel, That Correy's an allusive mofo at the best of times.
I'm real keen on having a look at Cam's setup after talking to Mike. bounce
But I'm equally keen to have another look at Mike's, Especially after his last photo's.

Cheers Woody - strange thing happened today. Was walking down Cuba Street in Wellington city and who should I meet but Correy selling his sunglasses off a table in the sun. Had a good yarn to him and we may yet get to go see his shed... just not sure when. You're right... he is elusive! Anyway he has a few projects on the go, showed me some photos on his phone... and I ended up buying a pair of sunglasses off him.
