    Another pic of the 36 ford I am almost done with for a fellow hamber that has been previously pictured in this thread. This time, by the great Dan Greenburg. He has goteen a few pix of my rides in the past, but this is the best looking by far to date.

    which ford you talkin about? I have 2 at the shop. 31 model A and my 63 f100. The f100 has a few twists to it. would be real hard to even tell what she started as soon.

    Damn man. You must be damn proud.
    You started from the bottom and built your self a solid reputation based on hard, and good, work. Cant beat that.
    It gives me hope that someday i might make it as well.

    Thanks for that. Again, just keepin my head from swelling reading all of the positive feed back thus far. That's what helps me make it, remembering wher I came from and the fact that if I get to damn cocky, I could be right back there again.

    I have more pix to post just got to find the time to do it!

    the 63 just got a unibody bed that will be a bed instead. Found it in a yard already cut from the cab. So I bought it. It is rock solid. But now I need a damn tailgate. Just got the unibody doors for it as well. I will have more on her later...

    After seeing some of the prices, I plan to build my own. I have had to do extensive repair on one before, and honestly, it would have been faster to have just built another. And I have a customer that owns one I can use for reference. So it will be alot easier and cheaper!

    thanks. They are factory, but the patch panels were crap so I had to "reshape" them.

    Soon enough. Soon enough. Want to see if I can make it for tech week first. If not, I will do a thread instead of holding off. She has so much done to her, it's hard to keep waiting.
