So Kylo has a new shop and is having an opening party soon. Here's a few questions with the man himself.
Who is Kylo D Leckie? Hot Rodder/ Greaser, hardened Waikato drinker, father of one and other-half of many - in my dreams!
What is Straightline all about and what services do you offer? Straightline Panelbeating is all about quality repairs that last, the latest techniques/products and making it easy for the customer. We do Chassis machine and digital measuring systems, insurance approved repairs, customising and fabrication for everything automotive - cars/bikes/trucks, air bags and hydraulics fitted and maintained - you name it!Why the shift from the old shop? Love the new building!!! Can now fit bigger vehicles through the door and have some sun in winter.
What personal projects are you working on currently? Just finished my ‘28 roadster and using the hell out of it. I’ll have that at the nostalgia drags, the racer style Harley motor has just been rebuilt and running now, ‘50 mercury coupe (family flathead powered cruiser) is currently getting sills, floors and some custom touches - big roof chop!! Done in time for next summer. All my personal stuff is early themed and Wade and Zane who work here have similar interests.
What music are you digging currently? Caning Justin Townes Earle and always digging Deep Purple. Gotta big range in “likes”.
Tell us about Trouble Bound: My time with Trouble Bound began when I joined a group of mates to make up numbers for hotrod association affiliation for a club, now giving it my all. Club of good bastards!
