    I just found this build thread. Great fab and welding skills you have. I used to work with a certified under water nuke welder. He could weld circles around almost anyone. I have to say for you being self taught on TIG your welds look amazing. Very nice build!

    It's nice to see someone with the ability to think up something and then make it happen and look so damn good.

  12. WOW! I have no idea of how I have missed this build as it is OUTSTANDING!!! I think I am going to my shop and set fire to my TIG as it won't do what this guy does with his. This is some of the most killer welds I have ever seen along with his fab skills makes me want to go hide under a big rock somewhere.

    I watched all 12 of the videos on the Wade coupe on YouTube to burn time in between classes yesterday and was wondering about this build.. Or even if there's a thirteenth video in the works?

    Bass,Any updates? This has been one of my favorite builds since I first saw it. Work is amazing and most will be hidden anyway. Also I saw you of the show "fast and loud" how is the Willys? But more importantly how is the wade coupe coming along

    I know I posted not too long ago, but I just reread the whole thing for the umpteenth time over the past four hours, and I am in awe at what I see. Everyone I show this build to thinks the same thing, and we all say "Yeah, isn't that awesome?" whenever it shows up in conversation.:D I mean, really friggen unbelievable... just top notch.

    I have even decided to completely redo my almost completed chasis thanks to the unbelievable work I've seen unfold:). It seems like such a pitiful attempt next to the work you've shown. My mind is truly blown... such great ideas and originality.

    I can only describe this hotrod as a functional and completely BA piece of art. And like an artist, I know that perfection of your work cannot be rushed. There's this little voice in the back of my head that is SCREAMING at me to ask though.... any updates?

    And, if it's not too much to ask, how'd you make the faux rivets?:confused: Thanks, and keep rollin!:cool:
