    Half the body work is roughed out. I am very happy with how everything is coming out, especially because of the fact that none of it existed and I made it all up, I was frustrated until I primed it. My good friend Ray has been a life saver helping me on the bodywork, and teaching me a lot about the process.

  23. This car is one of my favorites on the H.A.M.B. You’ve put so much time into it and it really shows. Excellent work!
