  9. Sexy floor man....and I wonder why more people didn't also split the cowl....for a 32 frame to fit? Seems a lot more easier, and of course....more sense. Great work.....love your stuff.

  11. Dynamite build. Love the Rocket power and 3 pedal combo. Floors ain't too shabby neither. :D Hoping you do not chop the top.
    Q: on the flooring, ...with SO many compound flange and beads, did it drastically change the overall dimensions? O do the dyes, actually stretch the material?? Appears that they were cut to correct size BEFORE beading was done.
    Nicely done. Subscribed.
    Gonna get GoatRoper involved on that Rocket engine?

    Awesome. Perfect proportions. So on chop tech.
    Have you ever chopped one straight across ?
    vs the stagger chop you did here around rear window sides?
    Which would you prefer & why?

    How long ago did you make that contract with the devil to do this kind of work? As always it has the look of magic to see the before and after pictures. Keep 'em coming.
