Custom barbecue grills and tail light bezels


Post from Brian McCutcheon

Custom Rodder magazine

I have some exciting and unusual news. I have a tech article featured in the May issue of Custom Rodder Magazine (on newstands now to April 18), pages 58-63. It is an article detailing the fabrication of custom tail light bezels and lenses for a ’55 Chevy. If you get a chance, please thumb through it.

McCutcheon customizing his hot rod

[Ed. note: McCutcheon wrote the article and photographed it and he appears in one of the photos. I’ve long been a fan of the artist’s quirky and intelligent art which includes sculpture and photography focused on the foibles of being human. Here’s a piece I wrote for the Weekly in 2001 about “Future Imperfect” a group show including McCutcheon’s interactive “honker” pieces (not shown).]

We knew the artist was a customizer from having seen this piece of his, “Trailer Queen,” a while back at Carbon 14 Gallery.

Brian McCutcheon is a former Philadelphia artist now living in Indianapolis.
