Custom car trophies made for local VW show

As long standing members of local VW club Wolfsburg Weed Huggers we were asked to make some trophies for the show and shine at their second Lazy Day event held in June 2013.

This seemed like a great excuse to play with some of our metal fabrication toys and excess left over paints and put them to a more artistic use.
