JPRC - Old parts - Second Life

Jason's always using his skills to give old parts another chance. Check out what he did with some Harley Springer pieces he had and some radius rod he got off ebay some years ago. The rods were rusty chrome and on another springer. He straightened them up on the lathe, stripped the chrome with a grinder then spent a few hours sanding and polishing. He then made some tapered sections to fit inside the new legs, then made the outer cover sleeves and finished them in silicone bronze to give a brazed look . . . going to be 8 inches over stock and have a new life on a cool chopper, what do you think?

Stance Works - LARRY FITZGERALD’S 1949

Always dreaming of a hauler to have one day. Always in love with Chevy 3100's. Came across this one on Stance Works. Great photos, and the off colored front passenger fender reminded of a truck near my parents place I used to see and like until one day it was sold and gone . . .

Short Vid on Keith Weesner

I got a Press Release email from Atomic Hot Rods - Brian Darwas releases short film on artist Keith Weesner.

Check out the short clip, great to have a look into Keith's workspace, have a read below of the release as well, exactly why it was an honor to have Keith design a Throttle. Collab tee!

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brian Darwas
E: info@AtomicHotRods.com    
- Brian Darwas releases short film on artist Keith Weesner.
Film maker Brian Darwas currently produces feature length documentaries on Hot Rod and Motorcycle Culture.  All of which have gone on to win awards, and have been well received.  He's now changing things up a bit, making a handful short films that anyone can share freely.  
"I feel it's important to our scene that high quality moving images, which can both awe and inspire, are available to anyone at anytime.  My goal is to reach the younger generation.  The generation of people who grew up on the Internet, and turn to it as a source of new ideas and inspiration.  I'd like to instill in them the notion that hot rods, motorcycles, and building stuff by hand is still cool and relevant." ~ Brian Darwas
When asked why he chose to film Keith Weesner, Brian Darwas had this to say:
"Artists often come and go. Very few have what it takes to make it through the hard living that comes with earning no money while trying to establish yourself. . . and as if constantly creating something new and exciting wasn't hard enough, you also have to pay your dues and prove to the world that you're the real thing. That you're not just somebody who came along to latch on and make a quick buck.
Keith Weesner is just that, the real thing. His love for Hot Rods, Customs, and the general Culture that surrounds it all speaks for itself through his art. The paintings he paints and the cars he builds and drives. He's been doing this a long time and it shows. He didn't fade away when the going got tough, and he's been doing it before it was cool." ~ Brian Darwas
Each film will run anywhere from two, to five minutes.  Once completed, they will be shared freely via the Internet, social media, etc. . . So, please share and help spread the word.
