The Sharka Blog


What's hiding in the shadows?

Sharka has yet another different set of gauges installed. I call this set Version Warbird.

Does anyone else hear voices in their head?


Seeing Red

Version GT-40 in red

I don’t often get the opportunity to make colored gauge faces. I made some dark blue ones for a gentleman a couple months ago, but didn’t take any photos. When the order came in for these red gauges, I thought I’d take the opportunity to shoot them and blog about it before I packed them up and shipped them off.


Passing the Test

Sharka studied hard.

It’s that time again… emissions testing. It is not my very favorite time of year, let me tell you. I’ll be honest, it fills me with dread. I get stressed out. I worry. I fidget. And that’s no good at all.


The 2013 Calendars

Two calendars to choose from.

I have calendars. CALENDARS! Official 2013 calendars. Perfect for any wall anywhere.


Hardtop Security Hardware Group-buy

Hardtop security hardware and little helpers.

This is a project I’ve been working on for the past two weeks. Hardtop season brings about the annual worry about keeping the top secure. This usually brings about the annual googling for security hardware. This year, I found something very interesting.

And I have enough to share with everyone!


Window Switches Are Back! (er… already sold out, sorry)

You know you want one.

After being out of stock for nearly six months, I have some Retro Window Switches back in stock. I’ve also got some strange black ones in the background.

But first, the metal ones.


Modified Door Sill Plates

About to go under the knife.

Sharka’s metal door sills are really old and crappy. When I got them, they also lacked the desirable feature known as flatness. If I remember right, they came out of a very very wrecked car for the price of shipping. I bent and beat them back into shape as well as I could. I’ve had them for about 6 years.

It was time to modify them.


NA6 Dash Finale – The Radio Post

That chrome didn't last a week before I tore it out.

Yeahh….. you know that chrome radio I installed earlier? It didn’t last long. Check out what I did in place of it.


Dead NB Speedometer Fix

Securely in the air. I love these huge tripod stands.

Driving along and the speedometer in your NB suddenly reads flat? It happened to me. The fix is a $200 sensor. Or you could save the $200 and spend 5 minutes soldering instead…
