    It's been a big week for Tony who owns Kustom Lane Gallery, the only Kustom Culture venue in Melbourne. It began with a huge opening last weekend for his Kustom Island surf and Tiki exhibition. A couple of nights of pinstriping classes with Doug Dorr (one of which I was lucky enough to attend) and continued with a party yesterday featuring Doug's striping talents, a BBQ and beer for gold coin donation, and "The Greazy Hawiians", The best Italian based surf band in the country. Heaps of cars too, Mercs, Buicks, Caddys.

    Have a week off Tony, let the liver recover and come up with the next great exhibition idea.

    I didn't take many pics but here's a couple. Doug striping in the dark and rain, some Tikis from Watangu (sp), Melbourne's own Tiki carver and one of my boy Eddie with his favoutite Tiki.

    Anyone else have any pics from the weekend? I put this up hoping others may have been busier on the shutter than I was.

    Frank, I'm not sure if we have met. I know we have spoken on the phone and I keep seeing your cars at things. Could you wear a T shirt that says something like "Hi, I'm Rat Bastad" or soemthing?

    Tony is really working hard for the whole "Kustom" culture scene here in Melbourne. I'm sure it doesn't pay any bills for him either. He just loves to do it.

    Well done Tony.
