  8. Why didn't you guys just finish the neat 2 door sedan in the background? Seems like it was a whole lot closer to being done. Everybody like a good thrash though. Good luck!

    Yea the body and all other parts get painted next week while we wait for parts from the chrome shop to come back. We have to wait for the delivery man to get the Duvall windshield to us so we can fit it before we can paint the body. Also we got a dash insert from Karl Knecht and those are my favorite. Plus he is in Texas.

  18. Who is the guy in the first photo? He looks like Mike McBroom but it can`t be ---- the guy in the photo appears to be working...
     
  19. I thought this was going to be a secret?

    I see, you just had to throw that out there so that we all might get an inkling as to how bad ass this is going to be.

    Yesterday I scored 4 polished spark arrestor air cleaners for the carbs from another HAMB member. Today the Duvall windshield should be here and we gotta get it fit quick so we can get it to the chrome shop.
