    I'd love to see those doors open in-action. Looks wild with them open.

    You sir remind of someone building a concept car in the 50s using the space age as your template for you custom. Pretty bad ass run at it too!

  14. My favorite custom build on the HAMB, damn; you have imagination, the conceptual three dimensional vision of sculptor, and super mad metal and mechanical systems chops, this build need’s a documentary!

    Moon, that is so cool what you're doing, it's nothing less than a scratch built one of a kind full custom in your garage, and i see that you had the vision in your mind from the first day. A great pleasure for me to watch.
    When you are getting close to the goal, or maybe when we just get older, it would be fun to me to come over for a beer or two and have a look at it. England isn't that far.
    Cheers from over here, keep on. btw, i know that the ribs on the doors are only for lengthening them, but it would look cool if you would keep 'em for kinda scoop....intake... don't know the right term, hope ya get me.excuse my english, it's just what i learned in school and on the H.A.M.B.
