HOLY *#@& !!!!! You ARE making body panels from metal!!!!!!!! I don't come around for a while and I see this. Wow.... as always.

Do you realize you can post progress pictures of panel lines being re-scribed and we'd all love to see it? Do you realize how epic this build is becoming? I mean, you could probably sell the metal shavings from your lathe... ;)

Bill.... this is absolutely awesome Bud!!. I love the brass trunk you did. Your metal work is so nice. I sure have missed seeing updates on this and glad to see you are getting some bench time.
