Fitzee’s Fabrications is building a car that he calls Crusty, because it is just that. Because the car is getting built into a cool drag car, and a ton of the rusty crusty bits have to be cut out anyway to build the chassis, cage, floors, firewall, and tubs, it was no big thing. Luckily Fitzee is a specialist at sheetmetal fabrication and repair, and he not only makes it look easy, but also explains how you too can make it easy. His tips and tricks, methods, and attitude are enough to inspire anyone to do rust repair. I have learned so much from watching him and a couple other guys online that I know I’ll be more comfortable doing rust repair and sheetmetal fabrication than I’ve ever been. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve done rust repairs, body mods like shaved handles, and plenty of fabrication, but I’ve never been a body guy. I have done repairs and made them ready for bodywork, but I would never have considered myself super comfortable with it. But Fitzee is confidence inspiring!
Seriously, watch this, learn, be inspired, and check out the new project. It’s a 1970s Corolla, that’s going to have a custom chassis, cage, turbo LS combo, with leaf springs out back and a Mustang II up front. This is going to be a fun little car and we totally approve. He’s planning to stretch and resize the rear wheel openings because he’s going to have more tire than will fit the stock opening, and the entire project is being built on a budget. Anything that can be fabricated instead of being bought, will be, and we love him for it.
Watch and enjoy and be inspired to do something.
