    You have pushed the bar to another planet.
    You are inspiring so many to reach higher for themselves.
    You are supreme proof that if you put it all in you get it all out.
    Beyond the beyond of well done.

    Nice work. Determination and perseverance are one thing but you have the skill to make it work.
    I passed through Kamloops last September while on vacation and thought it was a pretty nice place, did not get to see as much of it as I would have liked.

  15. I saw the first post and I was worried this might be a mess. Every post since just continued to show how unnecessary that concern was. And then the FENDERS! Holy crap you do amazing work!

    If I weren't seeing it with my own eyes I'd say it's unbelievable. Imagine if merchandise came on sheet metal pallets instead of wood....he'd not even have to buy metal!!

    You're a sculptor, sir. You just happen to build cars & trucks but I have no doubt if you wanted you could duplicate the Venus de Milo. Bowing & scraping here. HUGE respect.

    Whenever I see incredible metalwork like this here, I always think what a shame it will be to paint it. I make one little piece, it comes out really well, and I can’t stop looking at it thinking about how cool it is and thinking about all the stuff I’ve learned from watching guys on here. But damn, this is really something on another level- Hats off to you sir!

    Got a little update on the truck ! I've got the man panel for the bed mostly done, did a bit more detail work to the firewall, and have pretty much finished the floor and driveshaft tunnel, also came up with a pretty cool aluminum transmission tunnel. Its actually 7 pieces welded together polished and mirror finished the highlights, pretty happy with how its come out and think it will be a highlight of the interior
