Just amazing. So how many hours on it?
ART...........pure and simple. Can't wait to see the finished car.
Cool details! Shitty welds though... Keep practicing, you'll get the hang of it.
This is the singlemost valuable and informative, well illustrated, most descriptive, inspirational, humbling motherfucking post I have ever read on here.
You're the man ... I'd like to make this into a little book for myself ... it sure is a lot more understandable than all the chassis engineering books I have and makes me believe I could do it too ... if I could get my welds to look like stacks of dimes every time.
Wow. Just WOW.
As always, unbeleivable work...
Metal Magic at its best....you Mr Bass never cease to amaze me.
Innovation, creativity, imagination and the skill/ability to pull it off are rare talents indeed.
Youve outdone yourself.....AGAIN !!
Keep raising that bar my friend - that we mere mortals may aspire to this precedent which you have now set.
it has been a while since I have been this impressed by a 32 chassis build. excellent!
What's your hole saw and grinding disc bill per month? Excellent work as usual. Wish I could think at your level. I think it gives us all some really good ideas though.
really stunning, your work is truly an very inspiration to see.
Holy MOLY!!!! That is beautiful Bass!!! You are a friggin' genious!!!
Great... now I want to cut all my stuff up and just throw it in the trash again... Where's the closest cliff to push my car off of?
Pure automotive porn! Absolutely beautiful.
That deserves to be put in an automotive art gallery !
beautiful beads Bass....love it man
Holy crap thats amazing !
that is some of the most amazing fab work i have ever seen.
Ok, dude, what's your hat size up to now? Gary
Brian, TOP NOTCH! Love how you think. Can't really see your tierod too well. You went under the hairpin instead of through the middle. How is the clearance when you go lock to lock on the steering? I'm sure you have this figured but I can't see in the pics how close you are to the spring. I have been contemplating a similair setup. What is the distance when the wheels are cranked all the way from the spring? Again, Top notch work! Dale
You, my friend, are an ARTIST. I will be keeping close tabs on this build, and am planning to copy this chassis in 1/8th scale.
I've seen many mounts, brackets and small things built this way but not the whole f*$%#@ing car. Mr Wade made a very smart choice for the person to do this build and I'm sure he is as proud of it as you are. This is truely a hand built hot rod start to finish. You inspire us all to show true design and skill in what we all know as hot rods. Thanks for sharing your work, we all learn from others and this is work we can all learn from.
wow. amazing. you are the man. i love the theme your going with on all the mounts and such. and that chassis sits so damn nice. truely amazing work.
a few more years of practice and i think you will get really good at building cars.
Damn nice work!!!!
Brian, you just raised the bar... A LOT! That is so flippin bad ass! Can't wait to see it with a body on it!!
Without getting too "deep" I gotta say, you found your "thing".
Your work is SINGING to me!
