Hey I'll visually Paul Harvey that spot for you guys then, and thanks. I'll try creating an album for that car. Can't take any credit for the metal work, the customer has a rod shop and just brought us the body for a show quality mud bath and paint. I did do metal refining and finishing here and there on it (gaps, grinding welds, etc) and skinned the rumble lid though. I spanned the gap between owner and painter on it. Everybody always figures its fiberglass but none of it is. Well, as you can see theres plenty of plastic on top of all that steel, ha ha. Its worthy of some scary close-ups. That job was a couple years back.

Today I went on a walking tour of breweries in the "South of Market" district of San Francisco. And Mike, I'll hold the beer and meals stories for another time.

I opened a new account with image shack to see if they are better than photobucket now. It will take some time to learn their system, but the pics upload better.

I gave up on "pornobukit" years ago. I think I still have some pix in an "account" there, but I have NO idea what what user name & password are/were.

It was so cumbersome & clumsy to use that I just stopped using it
