These are going to be the seats, the shiny parts will be painted to resemble stone work.,IMG_20130101_230332.jpg

loving it so far.. but the grill looks out of place.

Yeah its not that pleasing aesthetically, just playing with ideas at this point, i was planning on hand carving something like i did on 41 chevy build but that took the better part of 8 hours to carve and I didn't want to go that far on this build. Alot of the ideas I come up with will probably change as I go along, but I love to get ideas from people here on the forum cause having other builders see it from their point of view helps me to see the bigger picture.

also was stalking michaels today and came across some ribbon, add some white threads on each end, instant mexican blanket, and take out the string in the middle of the sequins and you have instant scale cds!

What are the stuff in the first 2 picture from.. I really think there cool.

There gamer pieces, left over pieces from like warhammer 4000 and other games, to get these usually you have to buy the whole kit, like 40.00 plus but i have a gamer store here in town that sells the left over pieces, the store is also a place that they play the games too and build right there so there are left overs,  most of the small stuff at .10 to .25 each, a lot of the skulls make great shift knobs, there are endless uses for them. Just glad that shop sells them like this or i would never be able to own them.

yes I used to have a couple sign shops and when i went out of business sold everything, then i got to missing what can be done with a cutter but did not want to go bankrupt buying another one, then i came across uscutter.com, they sell cheap vinyl cutters, they are not the quality like a roland, summa, or gerber but for $275.00 they are not bad at all, the sample was cut at 1.25 " and may still come out near .75" so not to bad on quality and very reasonable for a vinyl cutter.
