2017 Trophy Design Here are the 2017 Car Show Trophies. The back row from left to right are the BEST of SHOW trophies - Car, Motorcycle, and Truck. The two front trophies are the first and second place trophies. The difference between the two trophies in each class is that the first place trophy will have a larger push rod and wrench. APX Industrial Coatings, Inc. will be powder coated the trophies. The color is a bright red. Our thought is to add a satin black finish on the crosses. The judging classes are listed below. See you September 9.
Fabrication process: New this year is to have our trophy parts cooked at 500 degrees to burn out the oil below the surface. This will allow the powder coater to not have issues when they coat the trophies. Jerry Funk is our fabricator. Jerry and his dad, Gerald, discovered that the brake rotors could be bent to 90 degrees without cracking using their brake. At first we thought we would have to have the rotors cut and then weld them together to achieve the 90 degree angle. The metal name plates needed to be rolled. Gerald discovered using a 6 inch round object for molding purposes worked the best.
