    Does anyone have any build up, fabrication, or detail pictures of the high end builds? Or some awesome stuff from our very own board members? Sellers, Cotati, Foose, Trepanier, Pinkees, Ladd etc...

    I love seeing things take shape i've spent hours upon hours gawking at Brian Bass's build threads along with many others here, while sketching things trying to figure all the small stuff out. I like the details, the little things that set a car apart more than the big changes, the fabrication and engineering shots before all the filler and paint. Like the bare metal features in TRJ i know a lot consider these street rod billet builders but the fabrication and engineering is incredible and inspirational.

    This is the kinda stuff i'm looking for...

    Weird right? I am more impressed with the vise grips than the pedals. organized tool guys always freak me out. My garage looks like a bomb went off!

  12. that's so funny that you said that, i was thinking the same exact thing!!and then continued reading the thread and saw i wasn't close to being alone on my thinking.
    not only does he have so many of them, they are all so clean!? i swear i don't drag my tools through the mud but mine don't sparkle like that! lol

    Thanks moparforlife and toxictom!

    probesport youre a smartass... i like it! haha

    Yes i admit the vice grip collection is ridiculously cool but what's on the table is a lot cooler to me.
     
  16. Yeah but I'm real good at it so I like to keep in practice.

    Actually the fab work is real impressive to me as well, I have been thinking about fabbing up an elegant pedal assembly and this just takes the cake.

    If you are interested in budget, inexperienced fab work be sure to check out the tech I did for engine mounts and the recent crossmember one :)

    The majority are Pinkees, yeah i'm a BIG fan of their work. Talk about details. These are just some i've saved for my reference on future builds.
