"floor" ???

You guys have shops with a FLOOR? That you can find and sometimes see?

Yowzaa!

I should look into digging through my stuff some day to see if there is actually a floor under there somewhere! (I've heard rumors that I may even have a workbench or two in there as well! I never trust rumors!)

looks like I was right for telling the boss we needed to come correct on The Gran Sport as a make up job. He listened to me and now we most likely get a big job in return. A 67 Fastback and it's a high high dollar job. The boss should have given me a bonus for that because I stuck my neck out for that, delivered on my word, and he will reap the rewards.

Holy crap this is the sickest thing i've seen in a while! Wow-just wow! I tip my cap to whoever built this cause i'm thinking it could be a concept car but no it's probably just a custom build. Wow!

It's stunning but I believe it doesn't exist. Looks to be a photoshop creation to me. And not even well done I might add.

Thanks.

I don't think I can start construction this year. I just priced some real wood shutters because the Heritage Committee is insisting on them. This is a clause on the site plan agreement. 19 $ grand !!

I may be doing some woodworking as soon as I'm done installing and priming the floor.

Painting "Chevrolet" On The Grill

I know there are vinyl letters available, but I prefer paint, so here's how I made my own masking template to paint the CHEVROLET letters on the grill of the ole Orange Crate.

Using blue painters tape, the CAD letters I created and clear shipping tape I cut out each individual letter




I then cut out the letters using an X-Acto knife


I attached each template onto each letter
Then it was a simple matter to mask around the templates and spray paint the letters


Ain't she pretty :o

Cool, good work. Now, if you can clear over them so they last. I did something similar to my Rambler rear handle and they quickly faded to GONE, so protect it.
