Nice to see your helpers wearing not only safety glasses, but hearing protection as well.

That way they still have it to get blown out at a rock concert, lol.

Kent White, aka, The Tin Man and owner of TM Technologies is one of the premier auto restoration master craftsmen in the world. What Corey is doing with this Trekker is in the venerable old tradition that Kent promotes at TM Tech. I suggest that if readers like this kind of craft that they check out the videos, live workshops and tools available through TM Technologies. If I was younger I'd make this kind of stuff my life's work. I might anyway.

I'm not in anyway connected with TM Tech or Kent White, except that I admire what he has, and is, doing to preserve the fast disappearing art of the metal man.

Keep up the good work Corey. -- Matt
