Martin, was wondering if you can identify that one metal bending tool with the foot pad? Looks useful but not sure what it's really meant for. Looks like it can even bend chrome bumpers on the edge.

Henry, good video, as always. You might have a cool second career someday....

The bumper tool is somewhat like what we had when I was a kid working in a shop, ours was adjustable. The bumper would be bolted to the car or truck, this was used to tweak the bumper to get it lined up properly or if a bumper had to be straightened, it could be used to tweak the bumper before removal.

Love the Olds at the 5:09 mark. Congrats on doing well in the shows, awesome work. Dan

Yep, Dan has it. Of course it would have some kind of handle that slips over it to add leverage. It may have been made for something else, who knows, it could be a tension adjuster for an elevator, but it works as Dan described for us.

Awesome. That's funny cause that's the first thing I thought of it being used for. Just yesterday I had a put together Cougar and the rear bumper was twisted and not addressed til I got it. I had to drill the holes in the rear body a little bigger and had to shift the bumper bracket around....I theoretically could have just used this in 1/10th of the time. Thanks guys!

I guess I'd like to add my feeling on the show and how cars were judged. Excuse my ignorance cause there's probably a lot of things I don't know about judging but it seems that most of the cars that are always deemed the top notch cars as of late seem to be 50's cars, chopped, and almost always has some bright or loud metallic paint. You could see a car that's just as good with everything the same but say the color is a white or solid blue...no one would care. You throw some bright green metallic or purple metallic on it and it's getting all the rave reviews. Maybe it's the eye candy factor, a simple trend of this time, but it seems pretty important knowing this, especially if a shop decides to build a shop car for a show next year. Just my two cents.

Then you got guys like rides by Troy, who just blow you away with their creativeness. Great builder he is.
