    So this is the first helmet I've pinstriped, and it came out pretty damn good, if I do say so myself. :D Let's see some more of these !

    The last picture is the helmet with my new pinstriping box. I'm still working on getting it all painted up. :)

    LOL, thanks Rusty ! I'm deciding how I want to go about doing your box, so that it doesn't look too "cheesy", know what I mean ? :p

    I have something in mind....you'll have to wait just a litttttttle while longer. ;)

    Oh hell, I almost forgot ! A couple days after you guys were at the shop, I found a '49 Ford coupe, and a '50 Ford coupe, and bought both of them, so my truck is FOR SALE as we speak ! :)

    LOL, yeah I saw a picture of your helmet a minute ago, after doing some searching. That thing is TOO COOL ! :) The guy I did this helmet for didn't want it too "over-the-top", so I didn't get real carried away with it. :eek:

    Awesome! Either one of them close to running condition? I got a pair of headlight rings if you need them. Gonna miss the truck though.

    No, not really even close. The '49 is the better of the two. It needs floor pans, but the rest of the car is in great shape. The glass is PERFECT, and the interior isn't too bad either. The car sat inside for at least 10-15 years. The '50 isn't in too bad of shape itself.

    This is one I did for my Dad. The question mark is his tribute to Indian Larry. (Probably should have rotated the picture. Please don't hurt your neck).
