NICE WORK Youngster !! !! !!
Very impressed with you Skills at your age.
Beautiful craftsmanship. Your an artist. It's one thing to make something but to get it with style is another. Outstanding.
DAMN THAT SLICK !! I love it !!
Holeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyy Shit! That is flat out amzing work! I might see something like that come out of a seasoned pro and even then I would nothing short of flabbergasted! You, being 20, gives talent an entirely new meaning.
You have some skills brother! You have a very promising career ahead of you and should have NO problem getting business! Hell, I would have you do work for me!
Awesome man! Simply awesome!
Slick as greased snot!
Just would like to have seen it with the door windows and front windshield on the same level.
Amazing talent here!
Thanks for sharing, just hope you don't need to make an emergency exit out those door windows. Keep us posted on this awesome build.
You will go far with such an early start,, keep it up.
i can hear your accent in the typing , but see your skills with my eyes & it looks cool keep it up young one ,can't wait to see the finished job !
If you see an old guy with an impressive mustache snooping around, don't shoot. It's just me trying to learn some tricks. Very nice workmanship!
good god man.
Thats just what I was gonna say!
I see a hemi head engine in the background, is that your choice for your truck? The workmanship is beautiful.
I'll POST to that...
If you go west, come visit ROCKET HEADS STUDIO .
Wow you have a gift!! Many big names cannot achieve what you have done and they have more experience than you have time on this planet!!!! I like the build a lot but I have one Question where is the belt line? I think the truck would look cleaner with the original belt line.
Door windows are too small.
Im not trying to be an ass, and I didnt say I could do better but.... the side window openings are killing it.
I'm with Ryan, this guys work is like furniture!!
Do it once, do it right.
My idea of fun, 6-71, 642hp, 570ft/lb, 11" tyre, 4.56 gears and two gears....
Mere words cannot describe the level of envy I am currently feeling...That being said, good lord man, you have some SERIOUS talent. I cant begin to fathom what skills it would take to pull that off, all that built from what you conceived in yer noggin! I sure hope you share some of your tricks and techniques with us knuckle draggers here. Fantastic man, absolutely fantastic.
Great to see more amazing young talent out there.
Got any more pics of the truck and your other projects?
Keep up the inovative work!
hey Alumatruck, wish I coulda done work like that at your young age!! technically as far as the metalwork goes,your hitting a home-run...i'm thinking you should redesign the doors though on your truck. they don't quite work with the lines of the cab IMO.
maybe add some beading on the door skins? and as Gearhead mentioned bring the bottom of the window down level with the bottom of the windsheild?
Outstanding work young fella...keep it up!!
Thank you all for great comments!
About the door window, on the pictures I dont have my window frame, and that couvers up so the side windows doesen't look so smll as they look now, but the finnishing result will show you what I mean!
Also about the beading around the body, becouse it's so small, I thought it will be cool to make it all smooth to show people that I haven't copyed any original car! And I think it will look great! In Sweden we don't have these kind of builds, only a original car or new market bodys in original measures are beeing built here, so trying to stand out with my work and buisness!
Hope you understand me!
Are also going to post some pictures of my work from my start, to now!
Wow! Subscribed this craftmanship is amazing, I look forward to seeing this develop and hopefully more of your work in future
VERY nice work. Gary
An artist for sure!
