    Frame is painted,flat sanded and buffed. Now if could just get my chrome back from the platers I could start assembling the chassis. In the meantime ill continue doing bodywork and prep on the body.

    Pink and champagne sounded good. Geez.. Of course, you can't successfully pull that off unless you've got an airbrushed chrome trim to break those colors up! ;)

    Ol' Henry would be proud of you guys. Can't wait to see it all painted!

    Not anymore, I handled those for you yesterday... :eek:

    Haha just kidding. :D

    Got to go to Atlas yesterday and check out the progress. Jamie was in the shop busting ass even though he wasn't feeling well. Talk about some commitment guys! The build is looking great.

    Come on chrome shop hurry up. We may get to start assembly this weekend if we get parts back from chrome. By the way disaster struck yesterday as the tank we were going to run went through blasting it turned to swiss cheese. New tank on order.

    I made a little progress today since the chrome showed up this morning. Started assembling the chassis. I had to knock off early today so we can go play a show tonight then back on it in the morning.

    Chrome is my favorite color.
     
  29. How do you guys expect to get the ratings up with no drama??

    C`mon, you know somebody is working with a hangover and showed up late.

    You know that somebody`s wife is yelling about the late hours.

    And you haven`t even shown any thrown wrenches!!!!

    The Discovery Channel will never be interested ............... :rolleyes:

    Ladies and gentlemen we have a roller. We assembled the front and rear with all the new chrome pieces. We need to get the front brakes installed and finish up the front end pieces. Also need to paint the wheels black. Dig that chrome.
    Oh yea I was hungover and we had a karate fight while doing the assembly so there is some drama Donnie. I won because I am Norwell Equipped.
