These bespoke metal cars take 2,000 hours to make by hand — see the step-by-step process
- Chris uses various metal-shaping techniques to build his cars to customers' specifications.
- Once I have the body design down, I then build a wood buck like the one you see here.
- Chris builds the buck from scratch around the chassis of the car.
- Chris Rünge: Once I have the buck designed, I then start building a tube buck like the one you see down here.
- Narrator: After the tube buck is complete, Chris builds the internal paneling and integrates a steel safety cage into the frame of the car.
- Chris uses four tools to shape the metal.
- Chris uses the tube buck as his guide for shaping the metal.
- He cuts off any excess metal and uses clecos, or temporary rivets, to temporarily hold the panel in place.
- These steps are completed for every inch of the tube buck until the body of the car is complete.
The DeanBeat: The most anticipated games of 2019
- And that’s how I’ve pieced together my list of the most anticipated games of 2019.
- Some of my expectations have been set by games that I’ve played before.
- Some of these games have been delayed so long, like Days Gone and Crackdown 3, that I’ve actually played them multiple times.
- And that’s where thinking about the great games of the future gets to be a lot of fun.
- That may have been obvious, but it’s nice to see the game developers truly execute on the expectation they set for fans.
- That game has a lot of critics for its car combat and FPS combination, but I liked it.
- The strategic and tactical combat looks superb, as the Total War engine just keeps getting better at depicting battles with thousands of soldiers.
Last call for Polish pitch-offs
- I’m heading back to Europe to hang out in Wroclaw and Warsaw so it’s last call for pitch-off applications.
- I’ll be at a Wroclaw event, called In-Ference, which is happening on December 17; you can submit to pitch here.
- The team will notify you if you have been chosen.
- The winner will receive a table at TC Disrupt in San Francisco.
- The Warsaw event, here, is on the 19th at WeWork in Warsaw.
- You can sign up to pitch here.
- I’ll notify the folks I’ve chosen and the winner gets a table at TC Disrupt, as well.
- Special thanks to WeWork Labs in Warsaw for supplying some beer and pizza for the event and, as always, special thanks to Dermot Corr and Ahmad Piraiee for putting these things together.
- See you soon!

Most anticipated games of 2019
- This game represents a break from Bioware’s traditional formula, and at this point I honestly can’t tell if I’m excited purely on the game‘s own merits, or because it’s been hammered down my throat like medicine for almost two years now.
- My personal favorite on this docket (unless Platinum gets wise and finally gives me Bayonetta 3), Devil May Cry V looks like its going to be the fulfillment of several of the fans’ wishes.
- And for the most part, Sekiro seems like it’ll deliver — it’s still going to be a brutally difficult boss fest that’ll see you expiring more than milk in the sun.
- The sequel to a game no one expected to get a sequel, RAGE 2 looks like it’s going to hit on May 14 with a great big colorful pop.
- This all looks like it’ll be great when it’s supposed to come out in Summer 2019.
Software marketplace G2 Crowd acquires Siftery to fold software usage into its dataset
- It is acquiring Siftery, a startup that has built its own database of business software not on user reviews, but by providing a service to businesses where it identifies what is actually getting used and when across their networks.
- That economy of scale makes G2 Crowd a pretty logical home for Siftery, which had also provided a database of software for businesses, but at a much smaller scale and before it had been truly commercialised.
- The smaller startup engaged with customers and their networks and provided insight into how much each product or service is actually getting used (not just enthused).
- Interestingly, while G2 Crowd will likely continue to be popular as a marketplace to search for apps and services, this deal underscores how the company hopes to develop going forward.
