    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....
     
  6. 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. :D

    Or ''the dog's bollocks'' for the british talkin crowd. :)
     
  10. 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.

    Looking good.

    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 :D

    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 :D

    Love the setup for radiusing, and polishing the bolt heads! They look killer man. Kinda look like acorn nuts! Awesome detail!

    Someone beat me to the "Dog's" explaination :D
    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 :D
    Anyway, used the drill+vise trick a few times too. Never felt too confortable with it for some reason.
