    I will be there. I have not missed one yet. I will be bringing the 36 ford coupe and the " rat rod " truck. Maybe something else if i can pull it off. Stop on by when you see the banner for the shop. I would have a beer waiting for ya, but it is so damn expensive!

    So there has been quite a bit of progress on the merc lately. Here are a few pix of it

    and finally off of the frame. Got a few parts from gambino for the suspension. Fatman stub, and a notch/4 link kit for the rear of it. Should look pretty interesting

    got some moer work done on the model A frame as well. It is now awaiting more parts. We need material for the torque arm, brake line tabs, and a few odds and ends so it can get all finish welded and sent off to powdercoat

    REAL solid. Think we are missing a few pieces of hinges for the glovebox door. That's it. Luckily, I get paid to do all of this. That's how I keep up!

    Now there is some words of encouragment! I needed that! Thanks! I have 2 cars that have to be painted in the next few days. Both of which are on the last steps of sanding. Then I have to build a frame or at least get it all fit together for the merc since the owner is flying in from overseas to see it. Anyone know how to weld???!!! HHEELLPP!!! HA HA!

    Thanks man! You comin on saturday??

    Got the 58 sprayed finally! had an issue with the tape bleeding on the scallops. Damn. But we intended on striping it with an outline anyway. So that will help a bit.
