Projects by Tyler
A 1965 Ford F-100
Some work had been done to it when Tyler acquired it but Tyler had to redo everything that had been done. It now has a whole new chassis from bumper to bumper. Tyler gave the truck air suspension and a stock floor body drop (STFB). In order to put the body on the ground, he had to remake all of the body mounts. Because of performing the body drop, they had to make a new bed floor so that it would clear the frame. He also did an engine and transmission swap on it, giving it a 5.0 of a 2013 Mustang and a 5 speed transmission. Because he did that, he had to remake sections of the cab floor and a whole new firewall to make the engine fit.

with a ’93 Chevy 350 Engine
From the back of the cab back is new frame and 4 link with airbags. The front of the frame is z’d with new control arms and air bags. It is right hand drive. It is stock floor body dropped (SFBD). it has 24” wheels, and the pinch weld on the body is removed so the rocker sits on the ground. The wheels are powder coated. It has a raised bed floor with new wooden slats and the bed strips are powder coated to match the wheels. It has a custom dash with frenched in gages. It has a brand new interior. It is still a work in progress…
Custom One-Off Projects
Tyler got his start doing custom one-off work when someone wanted custom badges for their truck. He made 2 sets and after that he got many requests, making over 100 sets. He started making a lot of different things for people in the car world–automotive accessories, trophies, etc. He makes everything on the water jet. It is such a helpful tool, cutting intricate details. The keychains are stainless steel and are 2 inches wide and 2 inches tall. They are as big as your credit card is tall. Usually the items Tyler makes are things that he wants–keychains, rings, etc.–and then others want to order them. Tyler is always up to a challenge and wants to get experience, so he will try to make unique items that can be used in everyday life. Usually when Tyler makes things for the first time, it is just because he wants to try something new. People will then request specialty recreations with their own twist.
