Gold Flakin’

Golden Domes
So this was the scene last Thursday night as all these helmets had the appropriate amount of time to cure. It was midnight and they were ready for stickers. I had to put the S-One manufactures stickers on the back, the girls numbers on the side and figure out what I was gonna do for my logo. I had some of my “bombing” stickers and thought they would work but when I placed them on a helmet and tried for different placement to get the right look, I was coming up short. I went ahead and finished putting all the padding back in the helmets to get them ready to go back in the boxes from which they came. The derby girls were expecting them Friday and I wouldn’t have much time to put the finishing touches on so I rushed to the computer, opened CorelDraw and went to work. Thirty minutes later at 2am in the morning I had a file that I sent off to my sticker guy at Swallow Graphics in hopes that he’d have the time to pump them out by 9am. He came through, the stickers look great and the “Hot Shots” Arizona Derby Dames team were happy!

Show Stoppers

At the beginning of January I was contacted by Joe Proski, Owner of the Mer Low 1950 Mercury coupe.   It was to be on display at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA at the end of the month and Joe needed a new show sign considering Squeeg’s Kustoms had recently given the car a complete makeover.  Here’s the sign sitting next to the car just days before the show.

And while we are on the subject of the GNRS, Daryl Wolfswinkel’s 1934 Ford Roadster, built by Squeeg’s Kustoms, won the AMBR award or America’s Most Beautiful Roadster Award.  Congratulations guys!
