    @pmdguy that a ‘63 Tempest wagon? I can’t recall ever seeing one before...THAT is a really sharp looking and ‘right sized’ wagon......I love it!

    Looks cool! I'd hook the head lights up to one of those motion light sensors so they would come on whenever something approaches the front of the shop at night. But thats just me...

    Yes Ray, that's exactly what it is! Future plans call for Silver paint and a red interior.(gotta let the money build for a while!)

    Had a guy here do that about 15 years ago. It sold after he died and it's since sold again. People must like it, it sells fast every time it's available.

    Bravo, well done sir!
    From the looks of the building and what you have done, if it were up to me, I would get the lights and turn signals outfitted with low powered, or solar powered LED or what ever it takes to have the lights working at night, we have a variety of solar powered lights, that light up various pieces we have here in our front yard, and it looks like you do get a lot of sunlight on that wall.

    You have gone this far to get it to this present state, go for it and get it lit up. That piece has a lot of potential to be even cooler than it is right now!

    You have some great options as far as back lighting through the grille mesh with multi colored LED's. Too bad you are in Kansas, other wise if you were close by, I would come over and take that project on in a heartbeat.

    All of that being said, its cool that you have hung that piece on your building.

    Hey lostone, seems we have similar taste in wagons, I see that your from Kansas, just curious what part of Kansas your from? Do we live close to each other? I'm just south of KC.
  18. Nice on both.......
