Elco Welding on Abbott Kinney


Elco Welding on Abbott Kinney is one of those places you walk by and always crane your neck to see what interesting things are sitting around. Old roadsters abound … plenty of great old porcelain signs … do-dad’s and more. Keri needs to motivate on down to Elco to get that long promised fire pit fabricated!

  1. This place is the sh*t if you need something put back-together. We have a vintage chair and they made sure it was never going to come apart again. If you don’t need anything welded, at least pop in and look around. It’s like something out of an Indiana Jones’ movie.

  2. ahhh! yes…for some reason my brain doesn’t even think south of Venice blvd. thanks for clarifying and the recommendation. looks fun!

  3. I live across the street from that joint.. and I think it was used in the new Transformers movie.. well they were filming something big for for the better part of a week 🙁
