  9. Assembly is happening and cleaning up. The peaks on the rod are a lot of work but looking amazing. Weld, clean up with a flap disc then file by hand with a round file then I'm gunna 80 grit and strip clean disc em to finish em off in bare metal. Should look nice once I'm finished.

    Motorex. Ryan ford offered to cut the letter out o wood and paint them white for the floor on front of the car. Fuck yeah can't believe he did them he's so busy and some how he pushed these out at some rediculous hour Of the morning. Can't wait now.

  18. I'm sure I've heard it as eldildo's, but maybe I heard it wrong.

    Mate you guy's have done an amazing job, and I hope you get the feedabck at MotorX you deserve.

    Greg's heading up with one of our customer so keep and eye out for him, say helo and see if you can't get Mario to drink a beer.

    Good luck this weekend.

  19. Thanks mark, the only feedback I'm really after is to be near the car and at least once hear someone 'fuck that's cool as shit' ha ha I'd be over the moon with that. Who's greg? I'll be hangin out with Andy Mario's son so surely we'll get Mario to have a beer or doesn't he drink or something?

  27. Well fellas. I'll keep this short. I've taken ten years off my life with no sleep over working myself 3 trips to the doctors for metal in the eyes and yes I wear goggles, mutiple cuts a epic blood blister and bruise under my thumb nail. Caught my work jaket on fire three times, smashed my head twice and way way way to many cigarettes but u know what the last three moths was a blast I was too busy for proper updates to get this rest for motorex but I did it I drove it today it looks fucking rad and couldn't be happier still alot of shit today but I'm happy I got to this stage in this amount of time after Sydney I'll post pics and details of what I actually did but pics who were I'm at.
    I'm off to motorex at 530 tomorrow morning
    Cheers fellas
