    They are a lot of fun and what a rocket ship this thing is. Had a lot of fun with it. Here is the air inlet I built before the final paint.

    I did some Ginger Bread stuff on it as well. I wheeled out the rear fender chip guards and the exhaust through body reveals. Oh and did I mention the engine surround? He's been loading up the living room with trophy's... There were a lot of hands on this project... I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking I did the whole car. This car bounced in and out of my shop a few times as well as a few others. I'm sure its still jumping around town from specialist to specialist.

    You sir are a true Craftsman in all you do and your clientele should be as proud as you are of your work. I had a look at your web site to see if you did a seat frame for T Buckets and didn't see any but now you have shown a couple. The freight costs to have a seat airfreighte to NZ would be to much but I may steal some ideas from you and have a go at making my own using light weight tube. I need to get my seat base down low and sloping down at the back. The other consideration is the seat back can only be the maximum 2" thick finished. My original thoughts were to build the seat base using marine ply with holes cut and the flat strap stapled across and then foam shaped to get the desired shape.

    Sorry if I'm high jacking your thread Bob, Bob and Bob

    Just an FYI here guys... WE’RE MOVING! We found the most beautiful place on earth and thought, why not? So we purchased a nice building with 2 nice heavy duty truck lifts all ready installed. So the plan is to be moving out of San Diego and be up and running at the new place by the first of 2019. It was part of our business plan to relocate closer to central USA for shipping reasons. Also it will enable us to better utilize an control our overhead. And on top of all that did I mention the folks are so nice there?
    So by now I’m sure you’ve guessed we are relocating to Licking Missouri in Texas County. After the first of the year if your in the area please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself. We always have cold water or coffee going.

    Congratulations and good luck. I'm originally from the Mid West, like any place else there are good things and drawbacks. Hope you'll be happy there.

    Thanks Mike, the forever summer and everything needed within a few blocks I’m sure will be missed. But there is a lot to be said for four seasons and little slower pace once in awhile. Oh, and did I mention that the folks are really nice there? thanks for the well wishes... everything is going to be just fine! What’s the old adage... CHANGE IS OPPORTUNITY! We believe this to be true.

    B&B are being lazy! Looks like im going to be doing most of the moving myself! Ugga! I contacted the local police back there today asking if they could check on the place until i get back there. Really nice guy and once I told him what I did he started telling me his plan for building a rat rod�� Think we are going to fit in nicely. Very few close neighbors which is just fine with me. Ive been posting up security videos of the corner im on now. When ya get a chance check out the crazyness on my instagram page “metaltwister” will get you on. Then you will know the main reason for the move. Im back by the way, will be checking in at least once a day... and thanks for the kind words.
