no doubt, Pugsy is doing a killer job on that car, I constantly check the build thread for updates.

I know who has good Louisiana home cooking in Cali!! Brian, you have it made with all that family, food and fast cars over there!!

Iv'e never had coatings done before so I'm curious what the quote will be.

Here are the pieces.

Any idea what it will cost?
I love that photo! You could put that up on your living room wall,

Beautiful work! I don't have an estimate other than, "A lot".

Yeah I have some killer in-laws (then a few I'd like to kill, but that's another story) we have some good times. Notice the beads and all, as I pulled into my driveway they met me at the car and put beads on me. They are a fun bunch!

Thanks Guys.
Amazing the things you can learn on line these days, eh?

And as for all that nice home cooking, I'm glad to see folks that can enjoy it.
My food enjoyment days are over. Lost the taste buds, probably from painting and using too much laquer thinners w/o a mask.

I didn't work on the car at all today; I just watched others work on it! I had it at the sign shop today to get the lettering and artwork done. They did a nice job on it I think.

Thanks! It's noisey, rough, scarey, and the gear drive is obnoxious; I love it!

Finally got back to working on the bucket after messing up my back last week Monday, helping build a storage building at church. So today I installed a 10 lb. residual pressure valve in my rear brake plumbing and also installed a vacuum reservoir. Just need to bleed the brakes tomorrow. Supposed to start spring weather here next week with several days in the low 60's .

No build work today.

Just got back from Cobo Hall. I will start a thread with pics when I can get them out of my buddies camera. Hopefully I got some pics of the next Riddler car.

It was a really great show with a lots of awesome rods.
