    An excellent reminder that not all FNG's are new to the scene or without skills.
    Congrats! Great work.

    Thanks so much to everyone that voted for me. All the positive comments mean a great deal. I’m just a regular guy working in his home garage, hackin’ away like most guys here on the H.A.M.B. With all the incredible talent here, I never dreamed winning was possible.
    A couple of guys thought that this project was “too much work!” Well, for me…when I’m in the garage fabbing-up something, it’s never “work”. This is what I love to do in my spare time.
    I’d love to have any of the tools offered. After much thought, I’ve decided on the “Box and Pan (Finger) Brake”. It will be a nice luxury to make a bracket or channel without looking around for something with a corner to cut it out of.
    I also would like to extend a grateful thank you to Shane Henderson and Baileigh Industrial for sponsoring tech week. Hopefully they’ll be back.

    Congratulations. It was definitely a great and deserving piece of tech. Though I must admit – I voted for the Model A hinges. I've dealt with more of those things than one guy with my limited experience should have.

    Thanks for taking the time to set all of that up.

    Congrats! You had my vote.
    I want to see what you make next.
  28. Next tech week post by flthd31, How to make your own '32 roadster body with only a butter knife and a cordless screwdriver.

    The craftsmanship of your work is awe inspiring. VERY nice work. So do you like it enough to build me a set? I have a couple of cases of PBR in it for you! :)

    Good job, let's see some more good come of you! Keep involved in the HAMB!
  29. I knew he was going to win the second I started reading that post. Congrats. I think I'll go build some 32 rails.
