And now, it's up on wheels, and I put the manifolds back on the engine. Yes, the chin spoiler was a snow shovel at one time. :D

Great resurrection of lots of wonderful builds.

Chuck, that has to be the longest rat rod I've seen . . . it's sleek and perfect. Keep it going.

That's the idea. Community builds are always a good motivator. And as for "get er done", man I hate cliche's.

That midget looks fantastic. Well done.

Trying to get paint laid out on the Camaro today. In the process of fighting a dadgum headache, too. Will try to get pics up later while paint is drying.

Got some work done on the 'Bird today.

I used styrene stacked up to drop the spindles.

Checkin' to make sure my spindle is centered in the wheel where I want it...
