You might be inclined to say that the mad-skills from WRS must have been due to some genetic mutation, and you wouldn't be too far off the mark. Bob Meshey was well immersed into car customization scene right out of the box, all thanks to his father "Big Bob" Meshey. Growing up Bob was a "kid in a candy store" almost literally, as he was attending the car shows that his Dad was competing in when he was knee high to a set of Zoomies. Growing up Bob picked up machining, welding, and painting techniques - even some of the 70's painting methods which involved paper plates, lace or even women's fishnet stockings - of course it was done in the traditional heavy metal flake from back in the day!
