Recent Restoration & Repair Projects This Month at Wilson Auto Repair
It’s been a hot summer here in Texas and we are all surviving the heat. As a matter of fact, some of our projects are on fire on purpose! Have a look at the classic car & truck restorations and repairs happening here at Wilson Auto Repair this month. We weren’t kidding when we said some of our projects caught fire! Check it out!
Here it is. The bed of this pickup was finished using a Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban. It is a wood burning technique of waterproofing and preserving wood. We used a torch to give the bed planks their black finish. They are also now waterproofed and preserved for a lifetime. We also gave the truck a black paint job to match.
If you have seen our posts on projects from previous months, you might recognize these two Datsuns we’ve been working on. The 1966 white Datsun Roadster is ready to head home.
This beautiful blue Chevelle is getting its underside cleaned up.
You don’t see these too often. Check out this convertible Corvair in for service.
Work is coming along nicely on this early Ford Bronco. We are fitting the new grill shell and fenders on her this week.
Look at the pretty engine we are Installing on a 1969 Chevy pickup
This 1950 Ford project is getting some metal and rust repairs done.
Here is a 1978 Ford pickup truck that we are having to fabricate metal to repair the bed and body. The first four images show the parts we needed to make and the next four show how they are being formed back into the bed and body.
We finally got this Mach 1 painted! It took a ton of work to replace a lot of the panels, but this job is one step closer to being complete and we couldn’t be happier with the results of our work so far.
This last picture just shows how much work is going on around here. This is a pic of some of the cars we are working on that are currently parked in a part of our building.
