  1. Thanks!
    Thank you! Yes most likely, but the owner lives in Santa Maria. So, I doubt he'd bring it down. Also it will be going to paint up there.

    I've been watching your threads in silent awe, but am now sufficiently lubricated to comment.
    The craftsmanship is near magical, but the vision and artistry of each build represent sheer perfection in proportion and line. You guys have really got it going on!

  3. Thank you so much Mo! I don't know about all that, we just do the best we can and try to get better everyday. Hopefully one day we will be worthy of such high praise. Thanks again!!
  4. Here are a few more very rough progress pics, this will all get "cleaned" up IMG_0550.jpg IMG_9726.JPG IMG_9966.JPG IMG_9969.jpg IMG_9973.JPG

    You guys sure like to cut cars up.Thats a beautiful work again!
  21. Yes, we do! Thanks! Everything looks better "cut up" to some degree in my opinion. I think our new motto should be "Cut up, or shut up"...don't get me wrong there are some gorgeous cars out there that haven't been "cut up" but I prefer most, kustomized. Can't wait to cut up my 47 Pontiac!!:)

    Here are more pics bear in mind that it is still rough and will only get better!: IMG_0196.jpg IMG_0197.jpg IMG_0205.jpg IMG_0358.jpg IMG_0359.JPG IMG_0361.jpg IMG_0362.JPG IMG_0363.jpg IMG_0364.JPG IMG_0367.jpg
  22. The metalwork is topnotch!!

    Great work. I like that big rear quarter window. That rear inner structure is over the top.

    Thanks Jack!

    So, here is a little progress. Cut down & welded the rear garnish molding (it's not 100% yet). Also Clark cut down a new windshield & he will be cutting down a new piece of back glass next. Then we will have our glass guy install them.
