On the road again and this time teamed up with Dunnville Ontario’s finest Deboss Garage Inc. Their 1967 Pontiac GTO build has been and still is a big hit on youtube. This car is essentially new again after a full rotisserie rebuild, paint, EFI and so much more.
The vehicle was originally purchased incomplete which meant much of it was missing including the glass. Rich secured both the front and rear and we managed to correctly install both.
For us this was not your typical installation, we had to turn back the clocks and understand the older metal trim arrangement, replacement fasteners required and the dimensions we were working with. A challenge perhaps but a good one because its not everyday you get to wrench on such a vintage motor vehicle.
Some photos of the car, super happy with the results. Thanks again to Deboss for selecting us on this job. Proud to support your channel and good luck on Hot Rod PowerTour 2019.

One of our clients just recently shared this accident and we figured worth publishing on our blog.
As installers we can easily say this situation could have been avoided but also it reminds us of the pitfalls of working outside.
First and foremost we dont do much mobile work. Simply put we like to
work indoors in a controlled environment. As long as its free of heavy oil and grease and waxes we are generally good to go.
Its also worth adding that working indoors keeps you away from the direct sunlight. Lets face it the rays coming off the sun are extremely hot and capable of weakening most surfaces, glass included. Case in
point a windshield sitting on a portable rack exposed to sunlight for just a short period of time is enough to soften the glued center membrane making the layered “laminated” glass more susceptible to cracking. During all glass installations a certain amount of force is always applied. And his force maybe just enough to crack the weakened glass surface.
While we have no thermal scientific proof this is our a belief from experience and it all makes perfectly good sense.
We’re long time followers of Speed Academy on YouTube and recently they rang us up for glass work on “Connie Celica”. Of course we agreed and just recently completed stage one of the glass removal. The Celica video update is due out in the near future so be sure to lookout for it and don’t forget to subscribe to their channel 🙂

OK first off we missed all the headline stars but did manage to run into Rich and his crew from Deboss Garage. If you havent checked out his youtube channel please do #debossgarage
Show otherwise a great success. Lots of interesting cars on display, many of which were first time showing. Which not only reminded us but reinforced our love for custom cars in Canada.
We had a newer truck in recently with an intermittent audio / climate control problem. We knew LCD display functioned just fine and the fuses were also ok. So we bet large on the control panel and thankfully we were right 🙂
Thank you Thorold Auto Parts for sourcing the correct replacement, very lucky on the coded match 🙂
