You are doing some fantastic work.
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.
Dang it John, all of this is gorgeous and you are really banging through all of the details on these small items. Love your work brother.
everything is just incredible john. gotta tell ya those cables, that clutch pedal and the coil are just SO life like!!!!!! WOW man......WOW
