    I have spent the last two days slobbering over this thread. I saw it mentioned in a World Of Rods magazine article. They just showed two pictures of it at the Nationals, and said they had been watching the build online. I figured it was on here some where. Man I am blown away by the quality workmanship. The man even does his own interior. I'll bet he paints it himself. Talk about envy, I wonder if I could touch him and see if any of it would rub off on me. I can't do half the shit he does. Jimmy you are the MAN!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  2. Well said. How do we get this man to do a cable TV show?
    No drama, just excellent do it yourself build info!

    Can't wait to see what little Jimmy comes up with in the future!

    Yes the weez has seen it and was impressed. I think if you look back in this thread you might see a pic of the Weez and Jimmy standing next to the truck at the Hunnert car pileup.

    Just a little update. Stopped by Jimmys the other day to check the progress. He's just about ready to tear it apart but is making a lot of little pieces that take a lot of time. Pieces like the escutions around the brake pedal and dimmer switch. You can buy these pieces but he wants to make them and plate them. Here's a pic of the dash that Mr. Weesner signed last year at the Hunnert car Pileup. [​IMG]

    Here's a couple of pics of the seat. Notice how everything lines up like the piping and the pleats.

    He still needs to make the trim pieces that go over the folding part when you fold the back forward.

    He's got just a couple of pieces left to make before he tears it apart for paint and then final assy.

    Ok Fella's Just a little update. Jimmy's finally got the interior done and here's some pics just to show how multi talented this guy is. About another week and he will be ready to blow it apart and start the bodywork and paint process which he is doing all himself. Very few people can honestly say they did it all themselves but this guy is the real deal. Enjoy
