    How patient should Jeem be????
     
  8. The project is badass. It's too bad that it's off-topic for this site, because I think it would blow a lot of people away if they saw it. It looks great sitting in the chassis jig, but pictures don't do it justice. You have to see it in person to appreciate it. It's first class, on par with any professional shop, and there are so many innovate things on this car that have never been done before.

    When it's in race trim and ready to compete, it will be a game-changer.

    Here's something I figured I'd share with you guys. I was striping some guitar stuff for Chip Foose a while back and took my truck since he hadn't seen it yet. When he was looking at the engine, he noticed the air cleaner wing nut wasn't quite right and I told him it pulled the threads out. He asked why I didn't put an insert in and I told him I didn't want it exploding in my hands while I did it. He proceded to take it off and said he was going to do it, I told him to watch his fingers. Here it is after he fixed it [​IMG] after he went out to put it on I asked if he squared up the air cleaner so it wouldn't leak. After explaining the goofyness of the cleaner design and how it will leak and telling him what I was going to do fix it (in my spare time lol) he grabbed it and said he wanted to fix it! Fine, but don't you have something, anything more important?... "Nope", OK then, have fun! Lol So he cut out an aluminum plate that filled in the the top area. [​IMG] [​IMG] and then he went out and installed it [​IMG] What a great guy!

    I know this is a little off the truck deal, but I figured I'd show you guys a little of what I've been doing. It will give you an idea of what I'm building and how I'm going about it. Here's a pic of the chassis with the back tire mocked up (it's 24" tall) [​IMG] ans another with me standing by it at ride height (I'm 5' 10-11") [​IMG] and to show how the finished welding came out [​IMG] This is my first attempt at building something of this magnitude and I think it looks pretty cool so far! And for those who are into this stuff, YES I've worn out the rule book making sure I've covered EVERYTHING!

    Was at the Grand National Roadster Show on Saturday with Alex and just saw Tuesday that someone had a little fun out on the grass! I wasn't around but apparently a model and photog liked my truck! [​IMG] Pretty cool and the show was absolutely bitchin' as usual!

    You guys "crack" me up! Everyone who's into cars knows they're never really done (huh Phill!) so this was a pondering a couple weeks ago with Alex and myself. How would the truck look if we made the wheels look like they'd had the DOW 7 coating done, to give them the old school magnesium look? After a few quick pics and a 5 min. Photoshop deal this is what we came with. It sounded good while we were thinking about but just not sure after seeing it... [​IMG]

    Here's another size comparison shot of me and project "Hats" just to show how short the car actually is. Trying to finish up front suspension and steering at the moment then on to the back. I can't sleep 'cuz this is ALL I think about and I'm dying to go racing! [​IMG] also figured it wouldn't hurt wearing my lucky Victory Race Cars shirt!
