#RallyTheValley 💥🏀 Our hometown Phoenix @suns locked in a 2-0 win in last night's @nba finals game! Special shout-out to Suns diehard & @sophisticatedfew_car_club member Robert Casillas who @fox10phoenix featured this week with his custom '87 Chevy Blazer "Monster Slam", tricked out in tribute to the last time the Suns were in the finals in 1993.
Here's an excerpt from Fox 10:

It was supposed to be a different color, came out a little bit purple and we said "the super show is coming. The Suns are here. Let's do it a Suns theme,'" said Casillas.
From there, Monster Slam was born. The car is outfitted with the meanest Suns gorilla people will likely ever see.
Back in the day, the car was autographed by everyone on the 1993 team.
Everyone, that is, except one: Charles Barkley.
"He said he would. Never did! Maybe we could get this year's team to do it," said Casillas.
In the 28 years since the Suns last made the finals, he beat cancer, has a new ticker, and is now enjoying the ride with his favorite team.
We had a great time working with Jasmine, the head painter at @hogworkz
Jasmine has been looking for ways to remove dirt and dust out of her paint and asked us to show her what the RBL Tacky Netting can do.
By hanging our netting into their state of the art paint facility, the dirt, dust, and other contaminates will stick to the walls and out of the paint.
This will ensure that the HOGWORKZ customers will continue to receive the highest quality color matched bike parts for their Harley Davidson motorcycles - including saddlebags, tour packs, fenders, inner fairings, air deflectors, lower vented fairings, and much more!

Pop quiz: Do you know your rust? These are the 3 types:
❗ Surface Rust: This one's self explanatory. Structurally, surface rust isn't a big deal. Still, it's best to correct surface rust as soon as you see it, just in case. Start with an abrasive wheel or sandpaper (around 50-grit) to cut through the paint and corrosion until clean, bright metal is visible. Scuff up the surrounding areas, too, so that your body treatments can adhere well to the car.
‼️ Scale Rust: When you don't correct surface rust and instead allow that #corrosion to penetrate the metal, you may see bubbles start to form in your car's paint. When rust penetrates the surface like this, it forms a rough, pitted type of damage called SCALE. Fixing scale means cutting through the rust with a wire brush, knocking down roughness with a grinding wheel and smoothing the surface with sandpaper. Be sure you're down to the bare metal and that no big flakes of rust are left before sealing it up, otherwise your sealer or filler could pop right back off. Scuff the area around the bare metal so your sealants and treatments will stick to it. You may want to consider smoothing it out with a #bodyfiller such as @5starxtreme Lightweight or High Build Body filler if it's in a more visible spot, before finishing it out with primer and paint.
❌ Penetrating Rust: This is the serious stuff. As scale rust gets worse, holes form when the steel is converted to brittle iron oxide. Your options are to completely replace the affected part or panel, or if it's only a bodywork issue, you can cut out the rotted parts and weld on patch panels to repair it. Just don't repair these larger holes with body filler. Also, don't attempt to patch repair a car's rusted frame.
✅ Stop Rust from Forming: We like Zero Rust because it starves the metal surface of oxygen, stopping the whole process that converts steel to rust in the first place.
