Default Shelby Series 2 by Sollis

Our own Sollis has created a masterpiece:

Sollis Metalworks built this car! It is waaaaay beyond stunning.

Sollis attended one of the early Metalmeets in Robinson Il. At the time, he and Garrick Opie were partners in a motorcycle business that did amazing work. After they dissolved the business Sollis went out on his own and over the years, I've seen some of his work show up here and there.

According to his Facebook page he spent 2 years building the series 2.

This...this is...this is magnificent!

I've been following him on Instagram for a number of months and his work is stunning. He's progressed a long way from making gas tanks for chopper's, a real talent.

Sollis is one of the metal guys to keep an eye on.
His eye and technique have come a long way.
A BIG job that is extremely well done, in all the details.
