286: Javier “Shorty” Ponce from Shorty’s Custom Paint and TV’s Iron Resurrection.

Show Date: 12/07/2019

(Season 13 EP 49)

Shorty has a long history of customizing cars with his smooth cuts, lines, flat surfaces and paint that one could reach into it. It was because of that reputation that when Joe Martin of Iron Resurrection was approach to film a TV series – he demanded that Shorty must be part of the show. When watching the earlier shows it became clear to the viewers that Shorty is one of the stars along with Joe and Amanda.

In this interview we talk about his obsession for Chevy Impalas. In our conversation he mentions that he is being asked to do his own TV show since leaving the IR show. We tease him about that every episode will be about Impalas and he is confident that if he did do that – he could show us hundreds of ways you can customize them. He assured us that his new show would be more than Impalas. That his craft would be applied to all kinds of vehicles.
