Things You Don't Want Your Client To See

I'm going out on a limb here because that is where I feel most comfortable. Here is a link that will let you see live action MOGmobile fabrication, thanks to Dead Letter, the manager of the Watershed building. There will be action between the hours of 8 and 8 every day, give or take a few hours on both sides. If you see anyone in a Function Shirt slacking off, please send me an email and I will have them replaced.
The MOGmobile is progressing with deadline fervor. I am picking polyester resin out of my hing hong as I type. My hope is to post frequently but my fear is that the MOG brass will panic at the sight of an out of context process image. Sometimes are not the best times for a client to see a work in progress. Back at Carlton House Restoration, Kenny had a process by which he would actually light a table surface on fire with some alcohol to bring out some orange hue from the wood grain. Not the ideal time for the client to stop in for a look. The MOGmobile is in a similar state right now. Hopefully not on fire, but you never know with that resin. Mix it a little too hot and we will have more orange hue than we know what to do with!

We are basically building out the van with foam which we will fiberglass over. Then we will give the bald bambino 24,000 beautiful blue hair plugs, add a psycko sound system and send her down south.
Below are some images of the mogression.

We actually used whipped cream to form the fenders.

Here is the van with the plug- pre glass

This is the scene here. It is like a work hurricane.
Taking form.


  1. Awesome, I can't think of a project more suited to your skills Charley, looks like you are also knocking it out of the park!
    Thanks for posting the updates, what a great way to spend the winter months in Portland.
