    Beautiful build. Amazing chassis work! I hope one day I can achieve your level of fabrication.

    You got some big balls man! If someone tells you " I'm gonna build my own suspension/air bag set up, do a v8 transplant, section, chop my car and do it all my self in my garage". 99% of the time my reaction would be Stop talking shit.
    You are walking the walk and not bothering to talk the talk, I can't wait to see the chop finnished and what you're next trick is. Cool as fuck!
  10. Damn, a whole page with no pics.....

    LOL :D
    I was gonna say the same thing. I really hope i'll become this good at fab n weld.

    Yeah, aint that a stinking problem? and you are inside, so it aint all that bad. I work outside, and everytime it rains is wire wheel time! It sucks!

    Anyway, THANK YOU for taking the time to show us how its done.

    Wow, your work is amazing! :eek:

    This is why I joined the HAMB, to see what people with skills can do. Compared to DaVinci-like artists like you, I feel like a 3 year old hitting myself in the head with wooden blocks and drooling all over myself. :(

    Member's always the reputation that precedes one's work...if no one knows you are capable of failing, then the reputation gets built even higher... with the pix being made after the work is done and looks good, then you can make up your own story about how you did it and say: "Yep, see, I was correct in doing it this way."

    I understand.

    Awesome work, matter if you do it only once...or have to do it twice to make it work. It's way beyond my skills. One of the best builds here on the HAMB.

    BTW, I think this build is much more than something as simple as "I just want something to cruise...!!!"

  14. hahah thanks you guys are too kind. but before page 9 goes without pictures, like page 8 did, i got one crappy cell phone shot! just tossed this up to get some ideas for the rear pillar


    and thanks again.

  17. Beautiful work! So... Does that mean if we all hurry up and jam the thread with posts, that you'll keep working and update with more pictures faster? We could all help you finish by the week's end! :)
