    Those first three pictures are awesome!! I hope to get that done to a future car.. once i get my hands on a pre-war coupe.. My great grandfather did wood graining as an occupation at the turn of the century.

    Really outstanding work. I love this stuff and even the newer car gained some soul with the work on it. It don't mean jack to post a new car with an example of your skills, some folks get the shorts up the butt a little to quick. I love seeing talent like this and you should be off to a busy life doing this excellent treatment for folks. Thanx bro! ~sololobo~
     
  29. No worries bigmando - I have a '49 Caddy dash that would look great with feature woodgrain sections with the rest black and the chrome trim,...drool.

    Another fading art/skill :(
