Perks of the Job

When I first saw this TL… it struck me as stunning. I kept seeing it around town; I just had to approach him. After only a few short minutes of discussion, he agreed to let me shoot it.

It didn’t take long to figure out that Allen actually works just down the block from me, at Hinshaw’s Auto Body. Working at Hinshaw’s has given Allen the skills and resources to fit these monstrous Konig Afterburners under his car.

Allen had to do a massive  2 ¾ inch pull in the rear, and ¾ of an inch up front. Hinshaw’s, being the laboratory it is, left Allen wide open to create is own custom work.

One major modification being his 10-point fully adjustable rear suspension setup. The camber, toe, setback and offset of the hub can be adjusted to fit almost any offset wheel. All tubular arms were Tig welded with heim joints, something you’d probably see on a race car.

Who knew this would work so well to find a luxury car’s perfect fitment. Allen wanted us to give his close friend Andy Krett a shout out for helping him with this build and thinking outside the box.
