Rats & Gassers Shirts

Designed these last night. We need new shirt designs for car show season and I really like Chuck Backman's '55 Chevy and Trevor Robinson's '29 Ford Pick-Up as potential t-shirt art. The process to turn video stills into shirt designs is an involved process using extensive filters and multiple layers in Photoshop. Worth the effort IMHO.

Go-Kustom Jacket Patches

I just sent these off to the patch maker guys this morning. I wanted to expand our logo recognition and visibility with Jacket Patches (mostly I want one for my jacket). These will be 4 inches long and almost 2 inches tall. SHould have them available in 2-3 weeks.

2015 Dodge Charger...Well It Could Be Worse

So I just got a glimpse of the newest Dodge Charger from the NY Auto Show video clips and latest Dodge internet postings. All I have to say is- it could be worse. The front is too round above the headlights in my opinion. They took away the hyper-aggressive "snake eye" look and replaced it with a more common "aero-dynamic" theme. The car definitely has a resemblance to the new Dodge Dart which I like, but I think they should have done something more interesting to the headlights on the Charger. The pre-release renderings by various auto illustrators and fans actually look better than the real car. Maybe Dodge will tweek the front end a bit in 2016? If sales are slow they may have no choice.

Go-Kustom TV Filming

We trekked over to Lo-Cash Kustoms in Bremmerton, Washington yesterday to interview shop owner Joey Herinckx and have our show hostess Kitty Mansfield, tag a few new Episodes (introductions). Had fun and man does Joey have a stash of old Ford Pickups and projects!
