    God has gifted you well . You are using your talent to the fullest . There are no words for me to define the quality of work you do . I have said it before Henry , would be proud . He may even allow you an extra bit of time for your lunch break .
     
  4. Just checking in on the progress and I have been following on Instagram. Great work keep the updates coming.

  16. To me it doesn't look any different to me than the previous one in page 5 but I am not you. I have a very long way to before I would ever compare, so probably not in this lifetime. All I can do is; admire your work, attempt to duplicate your level of craftsmanship, and fail to impress myself when I revisit your work. You Sir are a master craftsman. Thank you for your level of work depicted here and inspiring us to attempt to do the best that we can.

    The problem was the reveal was not deep enough not allowing the wheel well to sit flush against the subframe .

    Thanks buddy !

    This pic highlights a moment in your life...
    Two arms doing 8 arms worth of work and one more to have a well earned sip of a beverage...its surely like a sheet of music mechanical style with each tool placed in perfect harmony.

    I almost lose track of the project your working on...so many 3 windows have resided between your shop walls.

    I hope you have some downtime planned over this festive season...you deserve it...

    Glad to see you back and at it. I was wondering where the heck you were.

  27. I can only hope that the customer appreciates the time and effort that you have put into this body, and doesn't bitch about the cost. You do it correctly, or not at all.
