Chassis, Sub-Frame & Lower Clip
Rodney Brooks continues fabrication on the lower rails of the chassis.
90-percent of the welding is completed before adding the cage and front
clip. Then it is flipped to finish the welding underneath.
With the sub-chassis, front clip and roll cage welding complete, team
Leavitt brings all three components together giving shape to the car.
Rodney and Colton MIG weld at the same time to increase production while
keeping a close eye on the heat input and metal draw, (which is also an
important step in choosing where to sit)!
Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to
be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It
covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet
was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY
bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type
of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE
REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the
understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to
75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for
