Ted always had a smile and hearty hand shake. He had uncanny ability to rearrange body panels and chop tops that would leave me shaking my head wondering why I didn't think of that. I know he was married and suffering with diabetes. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

Chopper and I go back a long way!  Years of comparing notes on current and past builds. He had a large impact on our modeling community. We inspired each other in so many ways over the years. He will be missed by not only me but so many others in the entire world of modeling. 

ps

One of the K&R Kustoms+Rods builds that Ted "Chopper" Lear revered most was our SD 40 de Aire Barn Find! Chopper had asked us to allow him to restore it a few years ago. RRR & I packed it up and mailed it to Ted.
