This morning Team Lipstick had the opportunity to visit Weber Metals in Los Angeles which is a sister company of Foxtec in East London in which Willy is involved.


Rick Creed the General Manager showed the boys around this impressive plant which mainly produces parts for the airplane industry such as Boing and Airbus.


Most landing gears and cockpit parts as well as the structures where the aeroplanes wing gets attached to comes from Weber Metals.


The company is currently installing the world’s biggest forging press having a capacity of 60000 tons.

After having seen this great company the boys decided it is time for a hop on hop off tour through Los Angeles and this 2.5-hour tour gave them a good impression of Los Angeles and its famous suburb Hollywood.

Willy then also contacted Hans Jürgen who lives in Los Angeles and is the son of an old friend which Willy met already over 40 years ago in Butterworth – Transkei.


Hans Jürgen fetched the boys to show them a beautiful restaurant with live muses and good food and soon they met a variety of people who were interested to hear more about the various trips Team Lipstick experienced in the past.

If you’ve stopped into Dan Tana’s, the red-sauce Italian restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard, anytime in the past 47 years, chances are head bartender Michael Gotovac has served you a drink. …  Team Lipstick enjoyed the free hand pouring of Scotch and ice and felt the after-effect way into the next Day.

The boys ended the evening inOver the decades, Clooney has used the restaurant to throw a private post-Oscar bash, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton made Dan Tana’s a popular dinner spot, and the staff watched Barrymore grow from a baby to punk teen to America’s sweetheart.
