The man behind Japhands Kustoms and the Make It Kustom YouTube channel has racked up millions of views on his how-to series of videos, but as most of us know, nothing beats hands-on experience, so Karl is offering a one-off, two-day metalworking class at MotoRRetro’s workshop in Northmead, Sydney on 13-14 May.

The 12 slots available per day at $950 each have already sold out, and each lucky participant will get valuable time learning how to operate bead rollers, hammer-form, shrink and stretch metal, use dimple dies, and more. They’ll even build a full-size bomber seat they can take home at the end.

If you didn’t score a place in the class, you’ll also find Hare & Forbes hosting meet-and-greet sessions with Karl at Melbourne’s MotorEx, 6-7 May, and at the Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo at Rosehill Racecourse on 27-28 May.
