BangShift.com Single Seat Race Car Build Part 4: The Grill, Which Is Actually A Three Part Series. So Here’s 4A…
One of the most distinctive features of this build is the cool track nose grill and that’s not only because it’s front and center but also because it is one of the most custom pieces on this whole build. It was a ton of work to make happen, but the end result is worth it. This is the first video, of three, that document the whole process of this thing happening including the collaboration with Karl Fisher of Make It Kustom.
Bennett’s Customs is an Australian is a traditional builder that does some pretty cool car and motorcycle projects, and they have embarked on a new project that must be done by September in order to go racing at the Perkolilli Red Dust Revival. This is a single seat race car build, like one that you would have seen in the 1940s and they are building it from a mix of scratch made parts, stuff that has been sitting around collecting dust, and some more traditional parts they will no doubt be wheeling and dealing for. If you are into traditional rides, like those we feature from Iron Trap Garage, then you are going to dig what they are doing here. I’m intrigued, and inspired, by projects like this because we all tend to make projects that are so complicated and big that they take forever. If instead we worked on some smaller projects, maybe we could get more of them done.
This project here is no lightweight with regards to the work required, since they are doing this all from scratch, but it sure looks like it is going to be a fun one and we can’t wait to watch it come together. Here are the first two episodes and we’ll bring you more shortly!
On this episode we take a 1948 Anglia front grill, cut and section it to fit the profile and design for our single seater speedster. It’s been packed and will be travelling across the pond to Canada where it will be completed.
