    Like the title says, I rolled my 26 T RPU outside for the first time ever today for a few pictures.
    Getting ready to have Rod Tops make the top, then the disassembly and finishing will start. :cool:

  13. Looks great. Now- does it look any different from a distance? The picture in your minds eye match what you've seen? When you walk around something for years,you can picture it,but when you stand at a distance- it all comes together.........:)

    Thanks fellas :) I had a picture in my mind during the start of the build and it looks better than I had imagined.
    For sure the looks from a distance are inspiring. I have looked at it perched up on the ramps for so long....
    I'm pretty pleased :cool:
    Updates will be as usual on my build thread when it happens.

    Wow. Everything looks nicely fitted and the proportions look perfect. So many of these look cartoonish. What are the color plans for it?

    Thanks Ryan.


    Thanks, I tried to not go the cartoonish route, just pure hot rod.
    Color will be a single stage sapphire blue, a really nice dark blue. The top thar Rod Tops is doing is black.I'll be having a few parts chromed.
    Larry.
