About Me

My photo
After working for like 20 yrs in several bodyshops as a painter I decided its time for me to do only things I like,so I quit my job and started restoring, building and painting of hot rods, customs and drag cars. Nostalgia style,custom paint and nostalgia drags is what I like. Located in Asperen, Holland.. So if you need new paint, a full customjob or metalflake on your car, rod, bike or anything else you can think of, contact me at info@pricelesspaint.nl. Visit also my other site, www.pricelesspaint.nl for more projects and photos.

It's a Hemi!

As a Mopar enthousiast I always wanted to have one of those mighty Hemi's. I especially like the first Hemi, the 354 or 392, with their fantastic history in dragracing. And last week my wish came true, I found a 354  (originally in a '56 Chrysler Imperial) here in the Netherlands, wich is kinda special, they are very rare overhere.
It's almost complete but sadly it had both headgaskets leaking and two of the cylinderbores are completely gone... For the rest lots of worn parts and the heads are also  in very bad shape but hey! It's a Hemi!
So now the hunt begins for pistons, bearings and everything else that's in there ( crankshaft is good btw) and then the engine work can begin. It will take a long time though, these are expensive engines to rebuild....

Resto Charger '69

I started a fantastic project this week, a total restoration of a '69 Dodge Charger.  It needs a lot of bodywork to get it straight, especially since the owner wants it in black.  It's in a rotisserie at the moment so the undercarriage  can be made as shiny as the rest. But that's for later, first welding, fitting the panels and then straightening the body to perfection :)
