  2. Just remember you must have a drain to allow any water exit the mount, eg. rain or whenever one washes the vehicle. I suppose you don't get rain in Arizona.;);)

  6. Very nice touch Ty as I have had to repair custom aerial mounts due to the lack of no where for the water to escape. Good work young man.

    Nice detail touch, I think I would have run them towards the back though. More on the line of the airflow sweeping them towards the rear.

    All metal. I don't know how to lead. Hopefully I can finish them today. A lot more work than I thought...

  22. Now that is the truth of all bodywork, especially when one is charging a hourly rate for your skill, " That little job took that long to create and you are wanting to charge me that much ?" Ty, you are doing a damn fine job on this car and I'm really enjoying your updates so thanks again for the pictures and your posts.

    You've said this a couple times now. It sure doesn't seem to slow you down or stop you, though.
    Looking awesome, can't wait to see the antenna's finished.

    Love the ass on this now. I was a bit skeptical on the Chevy tails but you pulled it off with flair, well done! Patiently waiting to see what you have planned for the front.

    I'm not sure everyone is ready for this... Remember while looking, that I don't want what everyone else is building or built. I want different and mine. I'm building a 60s inspired full custom, but with my take on it.

    I know everyone faces their antennas the other way. But I wanted to accent the new (since sectioned) body hip line. And also tie in the beaks on the lights with the curve on the bottom. I also put a reverse curve in the shape going down. I haven't seen that done before.
    I also put them going different angles. It's what I wanted. I got inspired by lowrider antennas.
    *notice my cool antennas! Red plastic tipped 60s style!

    I also know this car isn't for everyone. But I want to thank everyone for taking the to leave me a reply. I enjoy reading every one of them.

    I LOVE how wild it's becoming! And not another like it in the world! 20160829_180255.jpg

  26. Yea man I dig it. Definitely one of a kind. I like the 60's style of it. Great craftsmanship. What did you use for the tips of those antennas?

    Do you know your antennas are crooked?

    I wanted to be the first that asked cause I think you're going to hear that one a lot, lol.

  29. I really like it it really fits the build and I love the creativity definitely out of the box. Did you use round bar to form the shape?
