This saturday the Sechs volts with friends headed for Fredrikstad and the Norwegian Hammerworks shop. A few of us had been there before when they were working on Fürstens Split cab, and we also met up with these nice guys in Hessisch this summer, displaying Der Wiger Coupe fresh out the shop. So when we got an oportunity to visit Thomas and Gunnar, it was an offer we could not refuse. The two skilled fabricators showed us a lot of useful tips and tricks in metal shaping and not at least sharing hands-on experience with different tools. Surrounded by vintage hot rod objects and hand buildt motorcycles, the inspiration was everywhere. One thing that maybe surprised us the most, working on top notch american steel for a living, they each had a VW project going on their own... Maybe they got hooked on the Wiger project?
We had a fantastic time and will be in debt for life.... Thank you for taking the time (read: wasting your time on us)!!!
Norwegian Hammerworks also have a spanking new web site up and running, and we were lucky to attend the release party with Gunnars banana cake =) Check it out:
And should you be in need of a helping hand on your vintage project, be sure to give them a call.
