History Eastwood & Barakat

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Rick Barakat, Apr 30, 2011.

  1. Hey Pete, great idea - Thom told me about the Hot Rod Homecoming - sounds very cool. After our trip in August I came home and came across the issue of Hot Rod with the Worlds Fastest Rusto Rod on the cover - "C'mon Rick, you gotta get the car done for it!?" If I were closer I would come by and give you a hand....

  10. Well, at least Eric doesn't play favorites. ;)

    Rick, if you get tired of waiting, Larry Braga, out in Highland, has a die that matches Eric's Kurtis copy.
     
  11. "Sir Michaels" in Huntington Beach also has same dies.

    24/7. And he is going to shock us all and show up at the Mooneyes event on dec. 8th.

    Can't a guy play hooky from work once in a while? Thanks for stopping by the other day!

    Tio Geo stopped by the other day after the Mooneyes event and hung out while I was finishing the prep on the frame. I'm ready to spray on the next warm day. I hope I didn't wait to long and miss out on all the good days. What am I thinking, this is SoCal almost all the days are good.

    Lewis-
    According to Pete, I don't have a choice!!! As long as I get it painted in the next week or so, we should not have a problem. I'm sure when we get closer I will be asking for help from those who would like to help on the project. Any volunteers???

    Okay guys-
    I'm calling everyone's bluff. I need help scuffing the body to get it ready to prime and I will be here all day Saturday doing it either with you or without you. With you would be my preference. Anyone interested please let me know. I will provide ALL food and beverages of your choice. That includes breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks if you need them also.
