Incredible talent and vision right there!!!!! On these types of projects one has to work from the finished aspect backwards to even start the project. Many times a big undertaking like this never gets finished and turns into more than a lifetime project.

I sincerely mean you are an incredible craftsman, an inspiration to many not only from the quality of work but the drive that it takes to follow through and come full circle to completion. It's getting close now and I cant wait to see this thing finished.

Good job!!!

2 days of prep for paint - not powder coating as it is hard to touch up if a tab or bracket is added.

    Chassis paint is a dark metallic bronze that looks black in the shade.

     The boys really pulled the rabbit out of the hat on this one. They double gunned it with no light spots and no runs. If you have ever painted tubing you know what a pain in the butt it can be.

     The bronze shows well in the sun.

      It goes together real well with the burnt bronze cerakote --- bronze anodized aluminum --- and of course the Wimbledon white.

21:49:25Thank you.  -------  Yes we were involved in the utility shutdown. We were fortunate as our area only lasted 24 hours without power. It did disrupt things for about a week though and some people panicked made runs on grocery stores and gas stations. For people that have lived around here for awhile it was no big deal. There are some of us around here that know what bad is, we live on the eel river. Google 1964 flood eel river.  It completely isolated this area for quite some time.
