I finally finished something and found a camera!

Thanks, JTalmage (ps I still need to find a box for your hotrod parts o__O)

Whilst taking these pictures, the removable top took a leaper off the table and the window fell out, hence the last picture.

This was also my first time doing plug wires. I used small electrical wire stripped and rebraided, then painted green.

Looks great from here! Shame the window fell out, but oh well.. Did you weather the engine bay and did you put on a air cleaner or is it just the carb?

I weathered the whole frame with black wash along with the engine and engine bay. The engine bay is actually white but just super heavily washed over. I think I did at least 20 washes of thin black wash XD
Yes, there is an air cleaner, but I lost it in my tabletop cleaning sesh.

Very cool!! Glad to see it finished!

I know what you mean on having other stuff to spend cash on.... guitars are a weakness here too... I cant play very well.. but I somehow have 7 guitars.

We've got a few guitars. A Squier Strat that ain't special, a new Tele body, a Jay Turser Custom SG, BC Rich Revenge, Epiphone Les Paul Studio Custom, and a bunch of acoustics, including a gorgeous Epiphone 12-string with the head broken off at the neck :( Gibson won't replace it, either.

That sucks on the 12 string....

I've got a 2012 Gibson Les Paul 60's tribute (faded black, I added black pickup covers, toggle coin, switch tip, black metal input jack square, and had a custom all black pick guard made for it) AND got it signed by Unknown Hinson (look him up, he's a riot!)

Just got (for free) a Squire Bullet (basically a fender strat) in blue w/ white pick guard and mahogany fretboard, cleaned it up and it plays great.

Also have an old 70's Epiphone ET-275, similar to the wilshire body. It's sunburst, I also have a twin for it in black.

an old acoustic by grandpa used to play, of unknown name. It's ruined from being in a moist environment.

Also, my fav... a late 40's Gibson ES-150 electric acoustic. Freaking sweet guitar.

Lastly an old chinese kit guitar that my dad put together in the 60s or 70s.

I HAD an offbrand 4string bass that looked like a fender jazz bass, but wasnt a fender. Sold that.

Like I said, I cant play real well, and dont expect ever to be able to, but guitars are beautiful.

Hard to comment on bad pictures. If you want to post, you need a good camera. Forget the other goodies and get one.

I guess I forgot to mention I'm 16 years old and get $20 a month XD

I can get a job though, and I suppose I should.

Yep. At 12 I had a paper route, had one till I was 15, then worked at the egg processing plant in town till a few months before graduation, then pumped gas till I found full time work.
