We’re excited to bring 40 pairs of the iconic Leen Customs pins to our fans and collectors: the StanceWorks Model A and Rusty Slammington are available together, new, for the last time ever. Produced as a collaborative effort between StanceWorks and Leen, these pins are the last that remain available, new, and they won’t be made again. Each pin is limited to 500 pieces.
Well, there’s no turning back now… I’ve taken a Sawzall to the chassis of the 1981 Ferrari 308 GTBi… We needed room for axles on the turbo Honda K24 we’re swapping in, and some tubes simply needed to go. If you had asked me years ago if I’d be cutting up a vintage Ferrari, I’d have said you were nuts, but here we are… With those out of the way, though, we’re ready to start on engine mounts, now that we have some dry sump pan dimensions in hand.
A little bit of everything. Sure, it’s a vague sentiment, but its rather fitting after even just a brief look around Baker Garage in Denver, Colorado. From classic BMWs resting firmly on the shop floor, to enormous Ford vans towering above everything but the lift posts, there’s a little bit of everything hiding behind the shop doors. From alignments and service work to one-off builds found nowhere else, once more Baker plays host to a little bit of everything.
The StanceWorks archives are full to the brim with articles, stories, and helpful pieces, each with history and heart, but many of them fall forgotten to time and the depths of the website itself. Today, we’re diving into the StanceWorks Archives, bringing you one of our favorite how-to articles to date. We’ve always sought to teach our audience something with every article, and our “How-Tos” give us the rare opportunity to focus on such an act.
Who needs an interior, anyway?! Today, I’m ripping the guts out of the Ferrari 308 GTBi, beginning with the gorgeous factory seats. I’ve bought a set of Bride Zeta IIs from Japan for the build, and have decided an F40-esque interior is more my pace. Out comes the carpet and the sound deadening… it’s all just unnecessary weight. Soon, we’ll begin the quest to find the “right” replacement carpet, and decide just how much of the interior should go back in.
