    I see a lot of very cool creations on H.A.M.B and I decided I would make a thread to appreciate those who turn vintage steel with rust holes into something pretty cool.

    Rules:
    2 Pictures, before and after.
    Little description of your car and how long it took.
    Can't be not finished.
     
  2. Now there will be another thread.

    actually, I think there are 3 or 4 threads with similarly worded titles

  4. You better define "not finished". That term paints with a very wide brush. Tim

    That is a stellar example of an at home restoration. By the way I loved the before photo of your garage that I saw in a previous post elsewhere. Would've been the perfect setting for all your old cars.

    Now that's a transformation in a short amount of time. Bet it was all you could do to NOT chop it. Love the tall "Ts".
