That guy is my hero, what a master. I don't particularly like the looks of the first car at all. The second one is coming along like art, so far amazing stuff, very very cool.

his 2nd car? Least it's good to know it doesn't take a lifetime to do one, as it would seem to be.

Been doing some browsing around on that type of work and it's amazing. I'm assuming you either have to have a real lucky job to have the time to do that or do it as a hobby. Seems like the engineer types are good at that fab stuff. I look up to the shop guru but as Martin has said, these guys are idol like for the work they do.
