Johan sums up Oslo Motorshow 2016

As a part of mine and Turtle Wax collaboration with Teng Tools in this project, we attended the Oslo Motorshow 2016 last weekend. The response from the crowd was almost unreal by our point of view. The hype around the project was hysterical in a fantastic way from the average public to magazines and TV-show people. Our focus was not to display the car itself due it´s still a long way frome done, but instead we wanted to focus on the skilled craftsmanship in all details.  The build crew of mine that also is a few of my best friends is Otto Tillander at NOCT Design & Engineering and Jörgen Persson at Svegs Bil & Plåt attended the show with me to display how we manufactured the parts and details from design to ready piece. The stand itself was a great cooperation between Turtle Wax and Luna/ Teng Tools that really gave us possibility to describe the amount of work to get the project to where it is today.

I have got a ton of questions of how it went in the shows competitions the last 24 hours. The thing is that we made clear before attending that we are not participating in the competitions no more before the car is fully ready. The plan is to have it ready to the Bilsport Performance show in spring 2017.

I would like to take the opportunity to give all the exhibitors and price winners my warm congratulations! I have seen so many beautiful cars this weekend in various style and performance. A special congratulations I want to give to Ulf Kusendal to the well deserved price “Scandinavia´s best car 2016”. Also David Gunnars, almost a neighbor of mine and friend that went home with the price for “Best american car engine”.
Thank you all, no one mentioned, no one forgotten for a weekend to remember and see you soon again!

Meet us at Oslo Motorshow 2016!

Powered By Johan´s project Dodge Charger RTR in cooperation with Turtle Wax is still in under construction. Last time the project was displayed was at Bilsport performance show 2016 where the project was welcomed as a total success. The project got rewarded with both “Peoples choice” and Richard Rawling (from Gas Monkey Garage in US) “Special Award”.  And that for a car only half ready!
Since then the project has gone in to next level with focus of function and design of interior and details all over the car. Luna with their wide range of concepts and brands is now involved from the tool angle of the RTR project.
“ -In order to be able to manufacture a car like this we need best technical tools and equipment to do so.  To have possibility to use the 3D printer to test out our ideas to the fullest before milling the actual piece in the CNC-machine is a key factor. That gives us both better view of the build in detail as long as it both speeds up the process and helps to keep the economy in balance” says Johan.

Also multiple standard tools is used on a daily basis to create all the sheet metal work inside and outside the car. Luna  with their brand Teng Tools wants to give the visitors at Oslo Motorshow 2016 a glimse of what their tool products can produce in the right hands. Johan with his team and Turtle Wax is showing the project so far in the Luna / Teng Tool stand. Johan with team will show  the process it takes to take a part of the car from design idea to actual product using both 3D printer, CNC engineering and hand held tools.
Welcome to Oslo Motor Show to see the detail work behind the RTR project and meet Johan and his team behind it.
