  1. You gotta be stoked about the new shop, fresh from the ground up. Cool.

    I don't know what these guys are seeing. Looked like a pretty solid start to me, even for the west coast. And 3WLarry's comment about it being worth $200, find me a roadster ('25-'34) for $200 and I will triple your money happily in a heartbeat. From what I see I wouldn't be surprised if that body was more like $2,000.

    Chris- Great looking car! A lot of craftsmanship is going into that one. Looking forward to seeing it done.

    I think maybe we were missing some sarcasm here, sometimes its tough to tell. Either way great car and a cool video.

    3WLarry is golden, he was clearly joking :)
    2K won't get you one of these anymore either.
    Yes
    I know what you're saying, sarcasm is usually my middle name :) but for California standards, this is rough.
    Since I'm not a big fan of large amounts of filler, I hammered and dollied every inch of that thing. It will be gloss black someday.

    The paint looks beautiful.

    I used to mix my own HOK Kandy- if you take the 8oz can of intensifier and mix it with one gallon of clear PPG base coat you make an awesome candy base coat that's much easier to spray than the HOK candy. That intensifier is the same thing they use to color the real candy-

    Can't wait to get a booth up and running again on our property-

    I don't know how I missed this build but its awesome! I really love the shape of the rear tail lights... a lot!
     
  22. Looks great! Cant get over that color

    Thanks everyone. I haven't painted that many cars, so I'm happy that it looks halfway decent. I have to say that House of Kolor is absolutely amazing. The clear (USC01) is freaking awesome. Lays down nice and you can color sand the next day with ease. [​IMG]

    Looks great. I enjoyed talking your ear off about your coupe at the Round Up. The quality of your work spreaks volumes.
