Jim and Sabrina's
1959 Chevrolet Apache 32 Stepside Pickup
The Powder Coat - May 3, 2004

Tom from Auto Tek picked up the frame from Orange County Plating Co. on Friday, April 30, 2004. I was unable to visit Auto Tek on Saturday (as has been my regular routine the last few months) because our family decided to make a little river get-away ourselves. We visited Laughlin, Nevada over the weekend of May 1, 2004, which is on the Colorado River. So, I stopped by Auto Tek on Monday, May 3, 2004 on my way home from work instead to see how the frame came out. It looked great.The pictures below will give you an idea on how the frame turned out.

I know the pictures above are not as good as most of the others, but Sabrina was not with me during this visit. This left John from Auto Tek and myself on our own. In any event, the black satin finish was very nice. The serial numbers are now very easy to read and the black color will be a nice contrast against the Tartan Turquoise.

Well, that's all there is for this report. Now, the fun part begins. Auto Tek will start building the truck from the frame up. Until next time, thank you for visiting and please visit again soon.
