Excellent, it is a lot of work. Nothing more satisfying than standing back and looking at your creation....I can hear the pride in your post, "100 percent of the work myself", I love that.
I got into a big fight with a customer a while ago. He was giving me grief on the length of time it took to do his project and yelling and screaming and told me how many cars he had built and none of them took as long as this project. I fired back and told him that he had never built a car, all he had done was open his wallet and until he put the "blood, sweat and tears" into a project he had no business telling me I was taking to long to build his car let alone tell me how many cars he had built. This was in front of a number of his and my piers.
Deep swallow...silent pause...followed by a heart felt apology. That was almost as gratifying as doing the project. In the end he was heaped with praise for the car and he passed it on to the people responsible for the build. I guess a lesson learned.
Any pictures?, love pictures.
