All I did was spot this at a swapmeet and add some brackets to the bottom for a shelf.
Just went thou all 26 pages----awesome
I freakin LOVE the evil look of those 59 Buick front ends!
Here is a newer bomber style seat my friend picked up used awhile back, he asked me to make some legs for it. The legs are old I beam that I drilled graduating holes in and then polished inside. The cross braces are scrap channel from my step van project used because of the green patina. The foot pads and cross brace tabs are cold plate, all bolted together with allen bolts and then cleared.
The other side of this tank wasn't near as pretty as this side.
This sucker will be wall art as soon as I build a bracket strong enought to hang it with.
Coffee table in party room......
meet the cruncher
Finally finished it, sitting at the wife's salon. Also, I can't take credit for the design on this, found the idea somewhere on the web...
The Cruncher, that's great!! Crap, I just hauled 2 junk cutters like that in to the Scrapper!! Oil Well!! Mike.
Absolutely beautiful, I wanted to learn the neon stuff several years ago, maybe you can have some classes!! Great job!! Mike! How's the weather up there?

What else do you do with a roach of a Model A door?
Whack 6" out of it, age a number onto it and hang it up.
I guess I could have just chucked it on the scrap metal pile.

I got bored today and went through my scrap pile.....
1930-40's railroad signal on top of a 60's generator case, on a pulley, pipe and a center from an old vw wheel.
Made a bunch of these a few years back to honour a couple of good friends.
Also did some work on an old oil bath air cleaner see my thread;
Just got it back from the show at Mystic.
You could make a cool little lamp out of that old oil bottle. Just get a glass drill bit and cut a hole in the bottom of the bottle& run your cord up through it, then put your bulb socket in the top of the spout, and finally put a small lamp shade on it.
Here's some stuff I've been working on for myself, friends and customers.
My wife found this and wanted it converted into a spice rack.
Sconces for HotRodEd
Distributor lamp for FoMoCoPower. I've made a few of these... so far.
Fuel pump wall sconce formy hallway. Eventually it will be hard-wired and the cord will disappear.
The gentleman's garage caddy. There's an ashtray on top to hold keys.
Valentine's for my wife. There's a flashing LED behind the spark plug
Desk lamp for Johnny Boy
Cigarette rolling machine iPod dock
Christmas present for my wife
WOW, Helllfish, everything you made is so cool!
This is the clock I have in my office. Old LeCarra wheel, Jag V12 Tach face, and a clock kit.
What she said times 2. Neat stuff!
Thanks! I'm working on a few other things that I'll post when I'm done. In the meantime, here are 3 more.
This is a lamp I made from a '57 Caddy floor speaker. IT was really hard to photograph.
'57 Caddy speaker guts, emergency/service vehicle(?) light, and a fancy bulb
