New Ku Tiki bar for Viva Las Vegas Weekender in April. Here it is on the trailer at foamer Kent's "Ranch house," up in the hills of east San Jose. Tiki in this state is a wooden frame, surrounded with chicken wire, and black felt. About 1 year's worth of work (off and on) put in by Nacho. The tiki measures about 18ft. tall, 8ft. wide, 10ft. deep (minus foam).



Good Old Kent riggin' up the foam rig.



Kent in action



Progress!



Nacho foams:


BREAK @ Kent's thoroughly insulated keg-o-rator


Decided to stand it up:




Still more foaming to do (we ran poor Kent out... he thinks we probably put a good 200 lbs. of foam on it), then Nacho will carve it, paint it, finish it. I'll be doing up the inside with some help, hopefully. Lots more work to do before Vegas!

Yep, not exactly the traditional way to go, but I don't think you can find wood this big!

Traditional or not it is still Awesome. If his earlier ones are any indication, this ine will be a Super tiki. Fun project to be a part of constructing.

Well, we made it to VLV and back to San Jose with the new Ku Tiki Bar in tact (. The Moai bar that we took 3 times took a beating over the course of those years, so we decided to treat this one with a clear coat to strengthen the foam before the paint, and did it ever pay off... no loss of foam at all. Trailered it along side 8 hot rods and customs.






My lamp on the inside... did a little carving myself!





At one point during the car show on Saturday, a Pin-up model found her way to the top of the bartop and posed for a slew of eager photographers... Anyone happen to get a shot? I deleted those pics by mistake!!! DOOOH!

Overall, good show... security was TIGHT (emphasis on TIGHT), but it was cool. Rapped with Tiki Beat Marcus (super cool dude) and met Pdrake briefly. Hope to bring it back next year!!

I know you realize It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, because it attracts pin-up models. But that is one badass smoke-snortin tiki bar!

I really can't take much credit for this one... really my buddy Nacho's work. I just helped when needed (I did the bartop with another friend's help, some painting, interior stuff, lamps, fingerpointing, suggesting, gawking, beer drinking, etc.). Thanks for the kind words, on Nacho's behalf.

WOW!!! WOW!!! and that's not for the girls it's for your work. Mammoth tiki, slammed cars, in Vegas, how much better can it get. BIG foam, I like it, I like it.

Would that weather well in a permanent out door environment? That is wild. Got to try that. Do you guys give advise?

That is "out of the box". GOOD JOB!
