amazing work you put in to the details.. fun to see!
Have I told you before? You're NUCKIN' FUTZ!!! ;-)
this thread gives me a heart boner. A beast among men you are Mr. Walls...Well done.
Damn. I thought I was going to be detailed on my wagon. You're not raising the bar, you've just pushed it into another atmosphere.
WOW..... Just WOW....
Cody, the level of detail you have going here totally blows my mind. The car is fanstastic to begin with and just as a straight up build would be out of the part. But man, changing the top of every bolt on the engine? You are out of control....in a good way.
He is in the ZONE. Total focus and execution of every last detail.
Beautiful Cody. Thanks for the ride!
Or ''the dog's bollocks'' for the british talkin crowd.
Neat idea on the bolts, are you doing it free hand or using the drill press and a grinder? Maybe one of those fancy lathe's I keep hearing about.
Just keeps getting better and better!
Your attention to details is amazing!
Thanks , i did the bolts by chucking them up in my drill and clamping my drill to the vise and grinding the ends by hand
hey what ever works
heres a picture
thank you ,if the wagon made The Rodders Journal i would be speechless for days , if it made cover it would blow my mind , and deffintily make my year . but i cant see that happining its just wagon
so i take it thats a good thing nads ???????????
Thanks , that what it all about the details ,
haha pat !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lol thats the first ive herd of a heart boner haha , thank you
thank you , what kind of wagon are you building ? at time i think its too much detail that no one will ever see
lol yah i guess im getting a little over board , thanks
thank you for coming along and taking the time to go threw it
im still lost
thanks im prety happy with the way they turned out , i looked for months for bolts like this and coulnt find aney aspeally in stainless so if you cant find you got to make them ,
Hey Cody, no need to play it down as "it's just a wagon." First, there ain't much cooler than a cool wagon and second, yours is the coolest of the cool.
Dog's Bollocks 172 up, 46 down
In UK slang terms the "dog's bollocks" means the best. It comes from the habit of male dog's licking their testicles (bollocks) and that they must taste good as they spend so much time in this activity.
The concert last night was the dog's bollocks.
Cody, how are you adding to the stainless? Are you welding it on? I mean, of course you are...I just didn't think you could polish up welded stainless to look that nice. Always thought that extreme heat somehow changed it enough to where it would loose it's luster.
Awesome work man! This wagon really rocks...
well thank you , i guess being around it all the time makes me think its just a normal wagon .
gotcha , well i learn something new everyday
i just tig welded a stainless nut to the top of the bolt with stainless mig wire , i know usually when i weld stainless molding together or repair them you can see a seem like what your talking about but for some reason i dont know how but you cant even tell , thanks for your kind words by the way.
Issue #48 has "just a wagon" on their front cover haha. Your attention to detail and craftsmanship puts your "plain ol' wagon" in rodders journal status imho. just my 0.02
Cool ill have to check it out, thank you for you kind words as well
Excellent progress again, you never cease to amaze me! Those bolts turned out super cool! Let me know when you are ready for mine. I dont want to insult it with my mediocracy (Just kidding) Keep up the awesome work.
Love the setup for radiusing, and polishing the bolt heads! They look killer man. Kinda look like acorn nuts! Awesome detail!
Great details Cody, thanks for sharing all the little parts & pieces.
Someone beat me to the "Dog's" explaination
In some other thread a guy complimented the dude on his work saying "thats the bollocks" and the dude got all wired up thinkin it was an ofence
Anyway, used the drill+vise trick a few times too. Never felt too confortable with it for some reason.
You really have done a great job showcasing your ability. I like the attention you put into every detail. Keep up the good work!
Monday update time , so last thursday phil , chris , my brother and I put the new windsheild in , today i installed the intake and exhaust , and started on running the fuel line and started putting on some more accessorys and some of my chrome parts came in
