Getting Caddy Ready for Dallas Autorama

February 7, 2015 at 10:04PM

We're redoing the bodywork & paint on the SEMA Caddy, (dubbed "Blue Streak").

Tim sanding the Caddy...again!

It's looking good, but now it's crunch time for us! We have to complete the redo by the middle of next week, as the Dallas Autorama is  Valentine's  weekend, but YES the car WILL be in the show!!!!!

We're working hard on our customer's vehicles during the day & the Caddy at night AND we've been pulling some really late nights in order to get it all done in time.

Speaking of which, any volunteers that want to come to the shop to help put 'er back together this next week are more than welcome & appreciated!!! 

Please & thank you!

Well, that's the latest news. Keep checking back & checking our calendar on our website as we will be posting all the shows the Caddy will be at as each one is confirmed. We're going to be hitting the show circuit hard this year!!

Once again, we'd like to sincerely thank ALL of our Sponsors/Partners & Volunteers for helping us with this build.

Thank You!

Thank you all who showed up for the reveal of the "Fire Bike" & for supporting the Houston Fire Department. We had an awesome time, met some great people, & saw some cool custom bikes & cars. We look forward to the next one.

The Big Reveal ;-)

We here at Bare Bones have been working hard with MANY various projects going on all at once. One of which is a custom bike that we painted as a memorial tribute to fallen heroes of the Houston Fire Department, past & present. Come join us for the BIG REVEAL!!! (Even the owner of the bike has not, and will not, see it until we reveal it to the public!)

The information is in the flyer below: 

Thanks all for attending!!

We here at Bare Bones Custom Paint & Speed Shop would like to thank everyone who attended our GRAND OPENING/OPEN HOUSE party at the shop on Saturday, August 3rd. We had a great time hanging out with our friends (new & old).

The band “Hotrod Hillbillies” rocked the show and the pinup contest was a success thanks to Al E. Cat & all of the beautiful models. DJ Twinkletoes did an awesome job spinning those wheels of steel.

The vendors were great and we believe everyone had a fun time.
