    Great work Flop! I'd love to see your process after welding to grind and metal finish like that, and what it looks like in between. You have a real talent!

    Hell - you make it look easy! I think I'll cut my 34 coupe body apart, just so you can put Humpty Dumpty back together again. LOL Fantastic work as usual my friend!
