Full metal construction was completed by Matt and complete design work was done by Jonathan in their respective companies. Once the body work was designed and constructed, Jesse Greening was called in for body and paint. Steve Tracy from Advanced Plating was called in for the exact fitments and finishes for the moldings and trim. Paul Atkins stitched the interior for the European and exotic look and feel. The Thunderbird was crowned the 2012 Ridler Award winner and has since won numerous best of show awards on both the indoor and outdoor circuits this past year.
