Slosh Tubz/OTG Design - Episode #7
We expand from our Episode #6 show and talk to Mike Losh about his inner fender company “Slosh Tubz”.
How did Mike and Sarah come up with this unique business name & slogan?
Why did Mike develop the inner fenders?
What was the first set made of, and how the initial design process was a ‘“trial and error” evolution?
How is the business doing these days?
What is the average wait time when someone orders a set of Slosh Tubz?
If you run a set of Slosh Tubz how big of a tire/rim combo can you run?
What is the retail pricing on a set of Slosh Tubz, shipped in the lower 48?
Are Slosh Tubz hard to install? About how long does it take to install a set?
The guys and Gas Monkey Garage used a set of Slosh Tubz on their killer Square C10, why was Mike and there when they revealed the truck? Did I see Cloud 9 there too?
Does Slosh Tubz have West Coast distribution?
Mike announces the Slosh Tubz are now in the CPP Catalog! Congrats buddy!
Good News Canadians, you can now get a set of Slosh Tubz a lot easier!
With any great product, there will be others. How does Slosh Tubz believe they have prepared for this, and why they think they have the best product for the price?
How do the numbers compare? 67-72 sets vs. 73-87?
We know that Mike bought “Boosted Bertha” to get into the 60-66 C10’s what other years will Slosh Tubz be getting into in 2015?
Will Slosh Tubz be offering anything for the Ford builders? Hint, hint?
Besides the inner fenders, Slosh Tubz has been working on some filler panels to clean up the engine compartment.
- Are these available?
How can you get a hold of Mike and the Slosh Tubz Team?

The second part of our show we were able to hook up with On The Ground Design’s front man Jason Jones. Jason is a big time car/truck/hot rod enthusiast who has built an online media company to connect builders with vendors through multiple facets -
“Our Goal is to bridge the gap between consumers and vendors through authentic story telling”
Jason, like a lot of enthusiast has a lot of passion for the industry and found a creative way to break into the scene, not only with a killer website telling story one by one, but he also did it by building a show stopper - his 1973 F100 that he recently had at SEMA 2014. I have a feeling that we will be hearing a lot more from Jason and OTG Designs in the future. You can find Jason at-

It looks like 2015 is going to be a fun and exciting year for both of these companies. We wish all the best.
BIG thanks to all of your listeners, we couldn't do it without your support. Happy New Year, and here's to a FANTASTIC 2015!!

Mike Losh - Episode #6
We catch up with this award winning SEMA C10 builder; from how it all started with his Grandpa's 1967 Short bed - “Cloud 9” and how this “garage build” turned into a SEMA, Street Trucks 2012 - TOTY winner.
We talk to Mike about his family and how it’s so much more than just him building these killer rides.
How the car/truck seen is in Arkansas?
How many Cow’s his parents had to exchange for Mike to be able to marry Sarah, Joke!
What Mike thinks about the 67-72 truck forum and how the forum probably had the biggest influence on how “Cloud 9” turned out the way it did - AWESOME!
How Mike gets the vendor support that he does and how he maintains those relationships.
How he went from one SEMA build right into another, and why anyone would want to do that!
We talk to him about “Square Peg” and why him and his team went with a Square Blazer?
Does he have sellers remorse, as he sold “Square Peg” so soon!
Why did he sell it soon?
Why it’s more then just driving them - the hunt, the build, the story with Mike and his “AMAZING” team!
Whats up next for this team? “Boosted Bertha”!
We talk to him about “Boosted Bertha”, her power plant, her suspension, her color, and even her interior. Should be another head turning build by this great team.
Mike did not let us down, great guy and a very fun, laughable podcast interview.
We’re glad he took the time to hang out with C10 Talk and we look forward to catching up, with him in the future as we do a follow up. Thanks Mike, good time.
Special Segment - we start a NEW segment, “Follow that truck”. Where we catch up with Sam Castronova, and talk to him about his 1964 C10 truck - “Dino’s 64”. How he acquired this truck and what BIG plans he has for it this coming January.
Follow along as Sam breaks some news to the C10 Talk audience about what’s up for this talented builder. We look forward to featuring Sam in a full feature “builder” episode in 2015!!
We wrap things up with announcing who the Jan. 2015 builder will be.
I hope you like it and I hope you have a great Holiday Season, Merry Christmas - Ronnie
