Gloom or Glory? Heaven or Hell? Black or White?

November is coming up. One of the gloomiest months of the year at latitude 57, only surpassed by January, February and March.  

November's gloom is different to all the depressing winter months, because November is a shock. Same thing every year. It's dark. Leaves are falling and the asphalt is never dry.

To overcome the November rain and the Gothenburg Gloom, it's time to seek shelter from rain and darkness. To wake up the inner creativity, turn up the heat and get together with friends. In short, to get all projects going and celebrate when occasionally things turn out right.

We're not role models, but we're trying to escape inflation, energy prices, rain and war while we hole up in our workshop. Where we're dreaming and doing.   

Carina, our Salt Slush CFO, in our paint booth. 
She came out like a Sunday Smurf since the color was blue. 
But her feeling was not blue.
There's a lot of theoretic theory about team's team work when it just happens. Not a week of planning upfront. No protocol. Just a Camaro that needs a heart transplant and crew of people who knows (approximately) what needs to be done.
In dark times, he who seeks will find. Myrberg found a sandblasting device.
 How he paid? Storytelling.
A good deal for us.
November Rain.

Radio Ga Ga Salt Slush Style

Why not just focus on racing, turbos and superchargers? Why write blog posts in English? Why make a radio show in Swedish?

The answer; there's no commercial logic. No reasonable strategy whatsoever. There's just a Salt Slush passion for storytelling, music and motor culture. Storytelling based on true stories, thinking and dreaming.


So, let's start with Queen as we celebrate Radio stations like Radio 88, driven by enthusiasts...


 ...and then move over to Motortimmen for those who want in crash course Swedish or / and motor culture.
Stay tuned every Second Monday even weeks 19.00-20.00 (7.00pm-8.00pm)

Dog Days are over. Leaves are falling. It's workshop time!

Rain is pouring down. Will temperature drop below zero tonight? It's getting darker day by day. There are signs in the sky that can make a grown man cry. Where to find shelter from the storm? Where to find comfort and piece of mind?
At latitude 57,7 it is now time to seek shelter and as always, a workshop, a project and some friends is what's needed. Oh, I forgot, you need a contract that provides low cost energy too.
Salt Slush meet up frequently to create, chitchat and battle technical problems. To dream collectively, do some wrenching and laugh with friends. Obviously this weekend was no exception. We were all fully busy relaxing

Dog days are over. therefore Chico,  our hot-rod dog, sleep like a dog while angle grinders were howling. Only woke up when it was time to get pictured.
It's back. The Vespa. Hence it's time for an Italian job.
 -Too many portals and too many seats, Anders stated.
Sedan to Coupe transformation ongoing
Yes, it's -34 Ford.
Vintage lawnmowers needs attention too. Here Carina is testing her Pennsylvania Trimmer from the -20ties.
Yes, Anders laser cutter was used to create a new edge cutter circle. Seems to work perfectly. Just need a lawn for the test drive.
When manually honing V8-cylinders, you regret that you're not working with single cylinder motorcycles instead. This is a kind of gearhead gym. Builds muscle and character, while your engine gets in shape.
Close up: Circulation honing oil. 
The (forged!) crankshaft needs attention too. Magnus Ford FE 360 engine is getting the massage it deserves.
GM vs. Ford. The long sleek Buick vs the meatball Ford. Straight 8 vs V8. Before the winter arrives and new projects enters the scene our Coupes need some minor adjustment. 
Oh, I forgot. When we're not relaxing with our own toys, we provide BorgWarner EFR and Airwrks and Magnuson Superchargers to those who need serious power when the sun is shining and a new project in garage when the wind is howling outside. If you want to talk about your turbo/supercharger project just let us know! We're as well cooperating with Supercharger-Online now so we can help out with a lot more superchargers and supercharger spare parts.
