Hot Rods Here It Is... The Thread You've All Been Waiting For!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by D-Russ, Oct 25, 2009.

  1. Well, maybe not all of you... umm, lots of you?... OK, a few of you. But I made you look, didn't I? :D

    I finally got the body work finished on my Vicky and shot some sealer. Then I put the body on the frame. It's all down hill from here.:)

    Here are a few pics:

    WOW man, that looks awesome-you gotta be happy! The best part is that all the body mods you did look as if they were that way originally.

    That's a major hurdle to cross, keep it going

  30. the positioning of the rear wheel and tire vs. the body line = perfect.
