Do you ever sleep?? My god man, you are a modeling machine. Always blown away by your handiwork. This is one of my favorite body styles for a funny car. The ones now don't hold a candle to what these were.

John... Awesome work my friend. You are doing one heck of a job on this. Man is everything looking great!! You are making me proud Blue! I am thinking that we should be seeing some paint on these parts any day now. Were did you get your guage decals from? They look great and you can really read them. I am thinking that you should almost be done with all your fabrication for this. I can't wait until we get to see some paint on this, with your detailing ability and painting skills this build is really going to Pop and Amaze people!! I am already wanting to see your next updates.
