thanks for the comments! although i certainly do not consider my skill level to be anywhere near the likes of brian bass (his work is borderline art in my opinion, i love it) i really do appreciate such a positive compliment.

i was waiting for someone to mention that! that spring pack had a snapped main leaf so i chopped the ends off and welded them to the second largest leaf with the eyes flipped over solely for mock up purposes while i source a new rear spring. well spotted by the way!

Holy shit, Bass are you on vacation?

j/k Guernsey, hell of a job and yes you are a Pro Fabricator in my eyes anyway. Excellent fabrication and thought into this build. Thanks for sharing!!

I like everyone else am impressed by your build and the attention to detail. One question for you. Where do you show off your ride on a small island like you live on? Do you ship it over to somewhere else to go to shows and such? Curious on how you got your interest in these cars there.

Guernsey Boy - Very nice work. Great eye for line and balance! Clean and simple, indeed.
You're obviously having fun - it comes across and I think that was the hook for me. You've inspired us all...
