    This morning, out of the booth. Still waiting on some sunlight, but a shot of the two colors together...

    I had to go back and look at some of your June on posts. Very awesome new hardware you have there! Your made tools always look so nice! Do you think a guy could use an arbor press and make flanging dies etc to work some sheet metal? That wagon is going to be a serious stunner! SEMA 2021???

    I think the challenge will be to get a base that will hold the adjoining die stationary, but adjustable for fine tuning.

    Words fail me.
    I don't have enough superlatives.

    Bloody gorgeous falls short.

    Thanks for the comments guys!


    Well yesterday was homecoming, Jared and I drove up to Annapolis to pick up the body from Absolute Rod and Custom Paint. Really pleased with this green paint, it does catch your eye.









    Gotta love a tilt bed trailer for loading a rotisserie...








    All strapped down for the trip south...





    A stop for fuel and then we headed to the Wednesday night meet at Leonardtown Arby's... I think that's the slowest traffic has ever travelled south out of Annapolis, we had quite a few people breaking their necks, slowing down to give the thumbs ups, etc..














    With that done, we can finish our spring cleaning in the shop and get this set back down on the frame..

    It looks unbelievable! I'd hate to think how many hours you have in it. Some builds are just common builds, this one's more like art.
