  3. made this clock out of a chrysler 300 hubcap and pinstriped it.
    and a painted little sign for my buddy on a rusty panel I found sitting around.
    I have 2 cabinets I built that I thought were pretty cool I have to take pics of them sometime.

    The red one has more style, the white one is boring but will give you a brighter, whiter light.

    Maybe scan/print some old oil can ads and decoupage them on the shade?

    You know what would look really cool is a fiberglass lampshade from the 50's. They come in all different colors and shapes. I've got a vintage lamp with one AND I just bought two more fiberglass shades at an antique store in Florida for lamps I plan on making out of car parts in the near future.

    There is some very clever stuff here,,,gives me an idea for my merc tailgate since everyone who contacts me to buy is only interested in stealing it. They tell me they'll send a money order,,,then I tell 'em i'll ship when I got the cash in hand and they disappear
    So far the camshaft towel rack,,too cool and the gmc footboard,,
