Thanks, Richard.  I think it turned out pretty cool too, but the fun is just beginning.

 

We have to apply Doctor Cranky's GUNK LOTION #5, the love potion, and #9 too, and all the others.  LOL! :lol:  B)  :rolleyes:

Looks amazing Doc, but it's pretty bad when the shiniest part of you vehicle is the engine!

Didn't want to comment before now, wasn't sure about this one.   Cutting up a '57 Ford Custom already?  Nooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!   Well that has all changed, you have done it again Doc!  Somehow you make those parts look awesome before they even come together.   I can't wait to see the finished product.

Wow...this is really nice overall....but the little things really set it off.....  like no two wheels being exactly the same....

 

Nice touch!!!

Where did you go Doc?   I keep looking back at this and wondering, it's not like you to leave us hanging this long.  Is everything alright, does anyone know?  Maybe I am just getting too anxious to see more, I hope that's all. :unsure:
