I'm diggin' the '37, but am absolutely awestruck by your work. Everything about this model is inspirational; the craftsmanship, ingenuity and perseverence are all worthy of great respect. Thank you for sharing this with us. Looking forward to more (hint :P ).

Mr. Davis, PLEASE don't leave us hanging too long! We all see too many epic builds fade away (a certain brass wrecker comes to mind.... *wink* *wink*) and almost get forgotten (I also remember CoyoteHybrids awesome `64 Dodge with the scratch-build engine...) but there's people, like myself, that will politely remind the builder that we're watching. And paying attention.

I took me 2 months to install the headliner in my 1:1 Barracuda because it was a PIA and I wanted to do it myself. Take a deep breath, and have at it when your ready. You'll get it.

** Although, with the newly tooled Revell `Cuda kit just around the corner, I may understand your casual pace..... :D **

Bill, the reason I ask is because most of the guys and gals that follow have no idea that this is even possible. It's a work of art without the body shell.

I would be interested in pretty much every step of the block. Especially the front. I have a mill and lathe I just gotta go pickup. Free of charge, with all the tooling including a rotary table. I just need to pick it up as well as some mills for it.
