  1. Mike - this is looking so mean already. I truly admire you guys who do all of this brass work and make it look easy. I know its not. I've done a few things in soldered brass so know what's involved. Kudos.
  2. Hi Dave and welcome back to the bench. I have the SnakePit file but I can't attach a .pdf on this forum. I'll try to get it to you through a PM. On edit: it won't attach there either. Shoot me a PM with your email and I'll send it that way.
  3. Your work on that body is stellar and I congratulate you on your perseverance and diligence. I also love your use of the Cragar SS rims through all of your changes, they have remained.
  4. Top notch work there Mike. Always love seeing brass FED chassis made and yours are right up there with the best.
  5. MicroMark and others offer a non-flammable piece of material similar to a ceiling tile (but smaller of course) for soldering on. You can use straight pins to hold your brass material in place. Its an easy to use system that takes very little time to set up. I purchased some 'T' handle straight pin for this as they as thicker and easier to hold.
  6. Merry Christmas Paul. You're making great progress and I've seen some pictures of the wheels you made. I need to get a set or two of those. Doing all of this in a fifth wheel must be interesting.
  7. I forgot to add everyone's response to this gift and how it is boxed up since you really can't pick it up by the cab for fear of knocking the snow off. Everyone loved it and had lots of questions. My daughter and son-in-law Dave gave me a hug and thanked me profusely. Dave took pictures of it and sent to his parents since they of course have the same last name. I built a cradle for the truck and found the appropriate sized box with a drop down lid. The truck is lifted and positioned with the cradle, then slid out from underneath when in the right display spot. This should last for years. Merry Christmas everyone!!
  8. That is really nice Billy. How about some more pictures so I can drool some more?
  9. This is too much, I can hardly fathom all of this in one package. Stunning and exemplary work Francis!!
  10. That's quite a fleet of drag racers Daniel. Quite impressive.
  11. Such precise work Francis! I'm impressed beyond measure. I sure would love to see this in person one day.
  12. 😂 You're absolutely right of course. I think this is becoming a life-long project.
  13. This is a great dio and there's so much to look over. If I may suggest, add a red based automotive decal to your creeper t accentuate the red head pad. Here's mine hiding under the window.
