Thanks, my friends. Well, this puppy is fresh out of the drying cabinet. Foil and decals are next . . . but you know, I could not resist playing with the basic components. Enjoy . . .

When you do shiny, it sure is different. That's 'bout as cool a bogger as I've seen yet.

Lmao !

God bless him , Virgil ! He still try's to complete the transformation from rust to shiny permanence ! Jim , he'd just end up being a back slider ! Sooner or later the rust would clog the artery going to the brain and down he'd slide , back into the pit ! Better to have him sitting on the fence giving each side a fair taste of what twists their watch spring !

I'm waiting .......... Decals ? Chrome ? Etc ? Stuff your turkey on your own time , not ours ! Lets get this show on the road ! Lmao !

LOL, you guys just keep making my day. It's coming, we are foiling next, and then the decals, and then final assembly with a finish of well spattered muds in some of the edges of the rocker panels. Shiny with some mud. Yes, that's what the doctor called for.

Stay tuned in.

Doc...have an Idea you could pull off. Research the "Monster Mutt" monster truck...look at the big tongue in the grill. You and Eyegore could do springy mounted eyeballs in the headlight sockets...The picture with the Eye gave me the thought.

Oh, Greg, that's a great idea . . . I just have to make some right diameter springs and do the eyeballs . . . THAT would look cool. Thank you.

Jacen, it's going to have a little bit of mud, I am trying to keep it subtle. I hope. I think.

After reading the last couple of posts , I went back and had to look .....now mind you , this is just my observation , but ...... Whoever hits the pedal to the floor in Steroid Willy best be wearing severe weather gear when those tires dig in !

Unless you got really big mudflaps, there'd be mud all over the place!! Looks great, Doc!!

Now, get Eyegore to the ER so they can plug that eye back in!!

Doctor I've been waiting for the pics and you sure delivered! That paint is glass smooth. I cant help but love this build. The creativity and originality is off the hook. Not much else I could say but bring on more pics! Thanks as always for sharing.

All right, the body is done sans the mud . . . I added a few interesting decals just to spice it up . . .

Here's a mud-level perspective shot. LOL!

The chassis, the interior, and the body are not glue together and won't be. I like to take things apart and look at them . . . LOL.

But some of these shots show the body sitting a bit forward, but trust me it sits just right . . . .
