You remind me of my young self, that's a good thing:D
That's even better! :)
Not the best pics, but I made the hood, scoop, deck lid and convertible top cover. these were just skins with minimal reinforcing. Hood with scoop...
Seeing that Quickchange does my heart good! :D
I'm into building a stainless header for a Track T. I have made several sets in the past but never in SS. I'll be practicing TIGing the stainless...
You guys are slipping:D
Here is what I have come up with:

We called them 'dumps' too. Where my wife was from they were 'chugs'.

From the banking in the back of the picture it might be the old Packard Proving Grounds in Shelby Township, MI.
With the other makes shown, I...
I have used router bits in my Bridgeport to round over corners on aluminum. Your router table should work too, but I would keep the rpm down and...
We need pictures!
Well Craig, that narrows down the age thing doesn't it? Somebody must know what that R&P came from. I thought this thread was DEAD!

Is there a prize?
That is a really ugly pin :D
