HEAVY DUTY PARTS BAGS- "THE SHOP PACK" -BAG IT & TAG IT!
$33.95

BAG IT, TAG IT, AND PHOTOGRAPH IT!  I learned the hard way just how important it is to bag, tag and photograph EVERYTHING as you tear down proir to doing a build or restoration...I used these same style bags for 20 years in my restoration shop.  There's nothing worse than looking at a pile of bolts and clips, having no idea where they install because you didn't properly document and label their location on the car.  This is even more important for the part time builder that may wait several years between tear down and assembly! 


With our new "SHOP PACK" of heavy duty parts bags, you'll know exactly where everything goes.  And having everything bagged, even a large part or sub-assembly, will keep it clean and free of  nastey shop dust and overspray.  Anyone that's restored a part, and then found it covered with overspray from sitting on a shelf waiting for assembly knows how important it is to keep parts bagged and clean!  This trio of bags includes:


One Roll of 350  Open End Parts Bags - 11"x19" 1.5mil for larger parts and sub-assemblys


100 Medium Size Heavy Duty-(4 mils thick), 6" x 8" Zip Top White Block Bags


100 Large Size Heavy Duty-(4 mils thick), 9"x12" Zip Top White Block Bags


OPTIONAL - 100 Extra Large Open End - 18"x24" 1.5mil  "BIG-UNS"


Both Zip Top Bags feature a special "write on" white block, designed for documenting the name and location of the parts or fasteners inside.  Add the photograph number from your digital camera, and re-assembly will be a snap!   We even have an optional "BIG-UNS" extra large 18"x24" bag, for holding larger parts!.  Just select it as an option when ordering.   These bags are a must have for ANY well equipped Professional Shop or Home Garage!   


NOBODY ELSE OFFERS ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO A DEAL LIKE THIS!    YOU CAN'T BUY THESE BAGS IN STORES, THESE ARE COMMERCIAL GRADE INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH BAGS!

Leather Shop Apron
$169.00

These Leather Shop Aprons are made of heavy weight suede cowhide, with a hemmed edge, and have all leather pockets and straps...in Black, of course. These aprons feature a double stitched and blind riveted lower pouch pocket, with a flap to keep the metal shavings out. The pocket doesn't have any exposed rivets or snaps to scratch your paint. The upper pockets are a double stiched and riveted cell phone pocket, (featuring the new Keven Carter designed Hot Rod Leather logo!), two pen/pencil holders, and a loop to hold your safety glasses. The fully adjustable straps are designed like suspenders, and cross at your back, so the apron is carried on your shoulders, rather than carrying all the weight on a loop around the neck, (I just hate that!). Just pull on the strap ends at the shoulders to adjust them. There is also a waist strap that ties at the back. All the straps feature snaps at the ends, so once you've put it on and adjusted it to fit you, all you need to do is unsnap the waist tie, and one shoulder strap, and lift it off, so it stays properly adjusted, just for you-easy on, easy off! We also include a suede brush, so you can keep it looking sharp! These are sized to fit most people from about 5'6" or so up to maybe 6'4", and they are pretty large around-I'm a big guy, XXXL, and they fit me fine, and they also fit a friend of mine very well, and she's about 5'9" and 130lbs, so they're sized right. I can also make custom made sizes if you need one larger or smaller, no problem, contact us for details. Available in Black, one size fits all. We may offer them in Black, with Red leather pockets soon.

Vintage Style Cloth Electrical Tape
$12.50

BACK IN STOCK!  We just a got new shipment of this fantastic tape in!  It's now in 3/4"x100ft rolls.

 

Whether you're doing a restoration, a vintage style build or a new traditional Hot Rod build, this is a simple, seemingly unimportant, but must have product. You know what they say about the Hot Rods that stand out from all the rest-IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS! This cloth based, sticky, old style black electricians tape is a detail not often seen...which is kind of the point...that it looks right at home, like it belongs on a car built in the 30's or 40's, or even 50's. Use this incredible tape for building complete wiring harnesses, wrapping tubing or hoses, or wrapping a steering wheel for that Track "T".  This is the same tape specified by major auto manufacturers for use on wiring harnesses, pigtails and electrical sub assemblys.   This material is easy to work with, is sticky, (but not too sticky), bends and curves easily, and has the right look.   So, rather than use the ugly modern PVC plastic tape which barely sticks, why not go "old school"? Keep a couple rolls around the shop, you'll find yourself using it more than you think. 3/4" wide x 100 foot rolls. Black only. Made by our friends in the Great White North, eh?

NOTE:  This is NOT "Friction Tape", which is a cloth tape commonly used on hockey sticks, skate boards, etc.  And you should NOT use "Friction Tape" as electrical tape, that's not what it was designed for.  The exposed surface of Friction Tape has a sticky residue on it, and your wiring will collect dust & dirt & look like crap in a very short amount of time!!  This high quality, Black Cloth ELECTRICAL TAPE should look great, and last for decades!

Worlds Finest Kneeling Pad

The Finest Kneeling Pads In The World! Pretty heady claim, eh? Well, we're serious-we think this is the finest kneeling pad ever made! If you work on your knees all day, or even half the day, or even every now and then, and you don't use the best kneeling pad you can, you'll likely pay for it one day ! For many years, I did auto body work and restorations, just dropping to my knees on the concrete, and going to work. I never gave it a second thought and I am paying the price now, with pain and difficulty walking, even after surgery...I wish I had one of these pads years ago!

These incredible pads are a special laminated 1"+ thick sandwich of a closed cell, synthetic rubber center, with an industrial grade, high density, closed cell neoprene foam laminated top and bottom.  Something about this combination of materials makes these pads unlike anything offered before. We've all seen them, the neon polyester molded foam rubber gardening pads, with the flowers silkscreened on them at the home and garden store?  Well, those are cheap junk, and this is nothing like those...The density of the neoprene spreads the load, and the softness of the center, absorbs it.  You can kneel on GRAVEL with these pads, and not even notice it.  They feature a rugged heavy suede cowhide bottomside, to keep it from sliding around on painted concrete floors, and a robust, heavy weight, finished leather topside, all done in Black leather, what else?  The finished seams are double stitched. They also have a sewn and riveted handle, so you can hang them on your tool box, or on the wall. They are a bit over 22" wide, by 14" tall by about 1 1/4" thick.

Do your knees a favor, don't work on the ground without this pad! These make a great gift for that Hot Rodder that already has "everything"!   These are the finest kneeling pads available ANYWHERE.   And, as always, your satisfaction is guaranteed!

Door Skin Dolly
$32.00

Here's a new type of dolly that is a must have for anyone that does fabrication work where the skining of doors, hoods, trunks or any other panels where bending and flattening a finished flange is involved. In the past, the only choice for this type of work was a standard steel slug body dolly, held tight against the finished side of the flange. These dollies then bounce and rebound into the panel, causing a remarkable number of small dents and dings, making it necessary to do even more finish work, grinding and even filling of the damage caused by the use of these standard steel dollies. With our new door skin dolly, none of this damage can take place! This dolly is a heavy weight, long leather bag, filled with steel shot, making it heavy enough to absorb hammer blows, yet it is also flexible, so it will conform to the contour of any panel flange being worked. But the biggest difference is, it won't bounce the way a solid steel dolly will, and it's soft, so it can not cause damage to the new finished panel being installed! These Door Skin Dollies are made of a heavy, strong leather, with a smooth work side, and a rough out suede side, making it easy to hold on to, and the seams are double stitched for added strength. This unique tool is a Hot Rod Leather exclusive, you will not find it for sale anywhere else! Made in the USA

Panel Beater Bag
$49.00

Here's a tool everyone doing Hot Rod fabrication work needs in their shop, a heavy duty, leather panel beaters bag. These bags have been used for many years by coachbuilders to rough out curved, or domed shaped sheet metal panels. They are usually filled with sand, lead or steel shot, and support the sheet metal in such a way as to make it possible to fabricate parts with signifcant compound curves, such a those used for motorcycle gas tank sides. Our standard bags are 14" in diameter. They are also available in jumbo size, 18" diameter. They are made of a robust, thick, yet soft finished leather on the work side, and a strong suede bottom side that helps keep the bag from moving around when working a panel. The seems are double stitched with commercial grade polyester thread.  Leather color will vary, depending on availability.  We sell them empty, ready for filling with whatever medium you wish to use, just insert a funnel and fill. They are easily closed with two nickel double cap rivets, (included with bags). Some people use steel shot, but others prefer a coarse sand, because shot is round and tends to roll together, while sand grains have flat sides, and can kinda "lock" together, holding the dished shape better. As with all our products, these Panel Beater Bags are Made In The USA!
