    Dang! There is some serious talent on here! All balled up with a lot of hard work, creativity, and dedication. Here's mine when I got it. And one with a bit of mockup with what I have so far. Unfortunately not much has changed other than a slowly growing pile of parts. Did I mention slowly? :)

    The 3 window body was beyond my skill level, Traded it to another hamb member for a 5 windowin better shape on a rolling frame.
