Acid-Torched Patina Panels
- Gunmetal/Stainless riveted
- Gun-Blued/Stainless Riveted
- Japanese Brown/Copper Bronze Riveted
Handmade from cold rolled steel sheet.
The “rust” or “patina” finish that I create on the surface of these panels is formed through a tedious 8-hour process. Using a torch, and a proprietary chemical treatment, a pattern is naturally etched (rusted) into the surface of the sheet. The chemical reaction is then halted, and the panel is clear-coated.
Fixed panels are held in place with aluminum, copper/bronze, or stainless rivets. Rivets are widely available and field serviceable with basic hand tools. Rivets provide a vibration-resistant, semi-permanent attachment method that is a fantastic choice for non-welded automobile applications. Rivets have been favored and used extensively by the aircraft construction industry as well as recreational vehicle manufacturers like Airstream.

It’s good to have a “little” weight in the truck. It’s appropriate that every vehicle operate with some suspension pre-load. An appropriately loaded vehicle will usually handle better than an empty one, riding down the road with ideal suspension geometry.
I focus on lightweight, minimalist designs with fewer parts count overall, when compared to other recreational vehicles currently in production.
- Less weight leads to superior driving characteristics.
- Faster acceleration and 0-60 times than the competition.
- Better braking performance and reduced stopping distance.
2015 “California King” Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis … (2.1L 4-cyl turbo-diesel; 7-speed transmission) was averaging 25mpg @60mph(avg.) and pushing up to 28mpg @50-55mph. It will run down the Interstate into a headwind @85mph; fully loaded with two people onboard and a motorcycle on the back. Between the two Mercedes-Benz Sprinter diesel engines, I like the 2.1L 4-cyl better than the 3.0L V6, for its ability to keep fuel cost low, but at the end of the day, they’re both good engines.
2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 170″ 2.1L 4-cyl Turbo-Diesel California King Conversion — “Mileage is a factor of many things… weight and speed mostly. Wind and grades play in to the equation. In testing, I have consistantly seen 25mpg with this particular truck; with perfect conditions and slow, sustained speeds showing increases of 2-3mpg for a total of 27-28mpg… this is Interstate driving of course. Some speed(mph) numbers for clarification… mixed interstate driving at speeds of (57-62+mph) has consistently shown a 25mpg average. Getting that extra bump requires slowing the truck down and really running it cool (50-55mph) average… sometimes slowing to ~48mph on grades… Finding that sweet spot between your foot and the wind if the wind is blowing the right direction… then you will see 27-28mpg on those long runs… It’s amazing really; because you have a California King Bed behind you.”
I personally give all my trucks and bikes a complete mechanical inspection. I check fluids, bolts, fasteners, wheels, and tires for correct operation and correct torque. I source the cleanest trucks I can; no salvage titles or accident vehicles.
“I purchase, design, build, sell, and deliver these vehicle combinations myself. I stay with the build process from purchase to delivery. I don’t use sub-contractors, and I don’t have employees to make mistakes. How does that benefit you as a buyer? Because I can deliver the highest level of quality control; attention to detail that only a 1-man design/build operation can deliver.”
All vehicles will be delivered @ (100%) operational and functional condition.
New vehicles will be delivered @ (97%+) cosmetic condition; with reasonable allowance for normal construction/use/operation. Minor surface wear from normal use.
Used trucks will be delivered @ (90%+) cosmetic condition… with no major accidents or damage. Signs of use will be apparent but minimal… minor scratches, nicks, dings, dents, and ripples; associated with normal use… should be expected.
These are working trucks, prepared to “excellent working condition.”
