    I have been.. It is pretty cool. That guy keeps a mean schedule at his age. Gene's fab skills are pretty insane..It was very informative. When I was there, Gene was talking about "maybe" getting a custom paint class organized. It would be a smaller class and a little more expensive.. If you ask him about it maybe it will happen down the road... EVILT

    hey glass guy did gene offer the lesson on fade paint jobs to you only or would he teach the whole class? i'd be more than interested to see that myself. i can't paint at all but i'd love to see him do it and learn. how much does the class cost?

    I went to his first one a few years ago. VERY COOL! The pace is pretty fast so be ready to take notes. He also doesn't mind you taking photos. I took a ton of both. It's a really neat experience that I want to do again.

    mabye we could get him to do a special HAMB class that does both fab and paint. anyone got any good connections? I am definitely going to go to a class within the next year.

    If we can get enough people I may be able to talk to him about it. We'd basically have to fill a whole class. That's about 20-30 people.

    I live 20 minutes away from his shop and I've never gone. Lame.

    I planning on going in November for sure.

    Nothing! I'm serious, you'll see. His shop is literally in the middle of nowhere, as in you can see 20 miles in every direction and there's nothing but desert. It's cool! In town (if you can call it that), there is one little breakfast place that's good, but I can't remember the name.

    I went and I loved it. Only thing I will tell you is bring a note pad & a pen. The knolwedge he shares is amazing, and the sheer amount of it in a short period of time is a bit overwhelming - which is why I'm tempted to go back out sit through the class again. Well worth the money!
    And yup, that's where I met low springs, road apple, lownslow, etc. at. Awesome time!

    Dave, You do realize you have to leave Peagrody to get to Gene's shop don't you? :eek: You better start saving a stash of sedatives!

     
  24. Dave, I will be looking for your post with the info. I really want to make it to this class in November.

    Where does one stay out there?

    There are hotels in town - not too far of a drive from his shop. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the street they were on, but they were there.

    I went, an experience I wont forget. Learned some very useful techniques.
    Lancaster and Palmdale are close enough to eat and sleep.
