Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by RoadFarmer, Dec 12, 2011.

  1. I've been looking for some new gears for my '58 Olds rear and found so me on that auction site from Fabcraft Metalworks out of Southlake, Texas.
    Has anyone ever used their stuff? Dd you like it? Is it tough? Thanks for the help

    absolutely the best! very knowledgeable and extremely insightful.

    plus he has a steel Willys gasser!

    I would recommend you deal with him directly, not through an auction site. His wisdom will direct you in the correct manner and you will end up with just what you need and money will be saved.

    I have his direct contact information. PM me and I will get it for you tomorrow.

    I believe he just uses eBay as his storefront - he used to sell stuff directly off his website but it's probably easier this way for casual buyers. You should be able to call him directly as well.

    For what its worth...I havent bought anything from Fabcraft...but when I had a question or two and called them and talked to Brad...he was very patient and made sure I had all the answers I needed....that means something to me. He didnt rush me off the phone, instead offered good customer service on a call that yielded no money to him. I would buy from him no problem...
     
  10. I sold Brad some '62 Pontiac posi center sections. Great straight up guy to do business with.

    just an FYI....who do you think actually builds the Olds stuff that Mark Williams sells? Yup, Fabcraft.

    And to make it even better to buy from Fabcraft, his castings are done in Milwaukee, WI
     
  12. Yes Brad is very kind and knowledgeable! Top shelf!

  14. I'd like to let fellow HAMBers know that Brad of Fabcraft will be in person doing a tech session at my annual Pontiac Heaven and Nostalgic Show & GO! weekend March 30-April 1 here in Phoenix.
    If you would like to meet Brad personally to ask questions and learn from his tech session, save the date. There is a special room race at the hotel too or, you can camp at the drag strip.
    Here are the flyers. More questions, you can ask me steve@pontiacheaven.org or call 480-899-7873

    Fabcraft supplied all the rear end parts for my AWB Tempest Funny Car build and also built me a nice 33 spline 3.90 POSI for one of my street cars.
