    Dash looks great, that was one of the better Hershey finds last year. Chop looks great too. Bob
     
  9. Chop looks great.

    Maybe a stupid question:
    How are you dealing with reassembly of the wood where it needs to be cut?
    Are you making your own key pieces, or cutting down a purchased wood kit...(or maybe not replacing the wood at all)?

    I ask because I haven't chopped mine yet. My thought was to cut down a prefab wood kit and then drill and dowel as necessary to modify for the chop....

    I've got a perfect candidate for your next challenge! I think it used to be a race car; it's full of "lightening holes". It ain't easy up here in the Northeast! Mike :eek: Build is sweet- nice work.

  28. Flop, looking at your bare metal finish work makes me realize how stretched out of shape my quarters really are. :)

    I keep seeing shrinking hammers for sale..but I've never used one...Are you using a disk, torch, or hammer when panels are stretched?
