    Looks like Rat Fink built a nest under your project while you were cleaning the basement.

    This kind of reminds me of the movie Better Off Dead...."after the Olympics, everything looked so damned easy". You do make it look easy.

    FRITZ! This is looking so bad- ass! Love the drawing by Jeem and the body on the car looks great! Can't wait to see more progressive shots!

    Your humility is a realy cool trait, but not everyone has your talent. And you my friend,have a ton of it.

    Fritz is the Shitz.

    How does the humidity and temp effect your process?
    Does it just take longer or do you somthing anything different?

    here are some new pics! body is off the plaster and I have chipped it all out from under it. I had a fellow here from the "Kansas City Star" newspaper to do a story on my junk so we put the body on for a photo op!
    Jimmy Smiths Drawing comes to life! I think it looks killer!
    And I always roll fiberglass with the shop door open so it never really stinks up the house or maybe we were just to buzzed to noticed.

    Damn..........a work of art!
  19. Will this be street legal when finished? If so how do you title it? Love all your cool stuff. This build sure puts a lot of us to shame with the speed you are knocking this out from scratch. Pure talent.

    I don't know how legal it will be but I have a title and can register it!, LOL
    I don't think it puts anyone to shame, not by a long shot. what I do any guy can do. there are a lot more talented people here on the HAMB then I. I just like the down & dirty show rod stuff. Thats why I decided to make a DVD on how anyone can build a car body like this. I would hope to see a lot more crazy stuff at the car shows then.

    The side insert look's deep. Will it have art or? inside? The tail light pod's are cool. The shape of the car is different too. You are one prolific dude!

    I'd like to get some kind of gold sheet aluminum sorta like the insert on a 57 Ford to put in the sides, then have 3/8th thick by 1 inch deep chrome strips run horizontal. Like in the "Jimmy Smith" art at the beginning of this post

    Awesome. Looking really really good.

    Tom Strongman is a really nice dude too.
  25. I can't add anything to what's already been said - this is one of THE coolest projects on here.

    you could use some copper sheet for the inserts, that would look cool and blind people when theyre staring at it.

    I have a complaint, Fritz. Your pics are TOO SMALL! Other than that... amazing.
