  3. Flop,

    Not that I really believe this will help

    Years ago when my fiancee dumped me for another guy a real good friend told me

    "No matter how good looking she is or how rich she is, some guy, somewhere, is tired of her shit!"
     
  4. I´m really sorry to hear about your troubles Flop. It can only get better from here.

    WOW!

    I just spent close to three hours looking through this thread page by page. This build is incredible. I love the process you've gone through and the many different looks you've tried before nailing the right look (especially on the hood and rear quarters). Photoshop would've been easier and quicker, but you wouldn't of gotten the practice and you can't tell if its right till you see it in person! Your work is inspiring, and the fact that your another one of us "young guns", awesome!

    This thread was like reading a really good book (if I read books), there were ups and downs, good times and bad, and a phucking bitch'n pontiac! I can't wait for the next chapter. And if i ever make it back out to pittsburgh i'd love to swing by your shop.

    Keep up the amazing work and creativity, you are where I want to be someday soon.

    Hail the up and coming "King of Customs"!

  12. You're gonna need to get in line... behind me and I can barely see the front of the line from where I'm standing.

    or

    If I sold everything, I wonder if I'd even have enough to have my pontiac hardtop "flopped".

    thanks guys did a bunch of little stuff on the hood yesterday that needed addressed parts that were at 80 percent finished up . just a little more welding to do on the peak running down the middle. and then onto the latch!

    hey you guys blew it who wanted to buy it i woulda taken 12 grand a few months ago no need to hit the lottery for that. but now not for sale again haha.

    its starting to get to the point where i can taste the metal work being finished!!

    then its off to Bill (slowandlow63) at Moonlight Kustoms in Jersey for the body work!
    probably gonna have to get an apt down there for a few months haha!
