Little Guys Visit Hot Rods & Custom Stuff

The Little Guys Street Rods is a very active street rod club in north San Diego county and trace their roots back to the 1970’s. Their activities include getting out and visiting shops to learn the latest tips and techniques from the experts. This week they visited us here at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff to learn about the latest in painting materials, equipment, techniques and the custom car painting process. Since Hot Rods & Custom Stuff is ‘World-Class” in the painting department, they picked the right place to visit.

At first, there was a little confusion as to which of the two Hot Rods & Custom Stuff facilities the meeting was to be held at, but once everyone was wrangled to the paint shop, the meeting got under way. But who can hold a meeting without FOOD? Not car folks, that’s for sure! This meeting was no exception. The Little Guys provided pizza and sodas, while Peaches Clark, Hot Rods & Custom Stuff’s head nutritionist, saw to it that pumpkin pie, cookies, cream puffs, candies and coffee were on the table. Peaches, being her (as always) gracious hostess, made sure that the 1st Marine Division would have had enough to eat!  With this being the start of the Holiday season, this gathering of car guys was off to a good start in the overeating department.

Once the group had their fill, it was time to sit back and relax and learn something. Randy Clark, our head guy, led off by explaining how Hot Rods & Custom Stuff goes about starting a quality restoration project. Then Andy Meeh, our head painter, took over and gave the club members a good overview of the new California-mandated waterborne painting systems and how Hot Rods & Custom Stuff goes about producing the finishes that we’re famous for.

 

 

Randy and Andy then fielded questions by the club members, particularly regarding our blasting methods and surface preparation prior to painting.

The meeting also served as an opportunity for Little Guys members Mr. & Mrs. Jim Hoeff to pick up their newly-restored all-steel ’32 Ford roadster. Randy explained that we were having a “Delivery Party”.

The Hoeff’s, their fresh ’32, and the rest of the Little Guys adjourned at 8 pm.

We here at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff appreciate the visit by the Little Guys and their interest in our products and services. The Little Guys have long been a vital part of the north San Diego county car culture and we celebrate their success and their support of the community.  You can visit their website at: www.littleguysstreetrods.com
