Somebody needed to build a SHINY :) :) :) Rommel's Rod. Here's one converted to a surf rod. The body was shortened 1" and the seats and BB Chevy are my castings. The paint is HOK cocoa pearl.

And now I'm off to the VA hospital for some overnight tests.

I never get tired of seeing these built- maybe because NOBODY builds them right out of the box as the intended subject! Very nice.
