2018 Ridler

Chevman, I think most everyone here understands how life just gets in the way of projects & how frustrating it can be trying to get back to them sometimes. But at least you got epoxy on your sheet metal. I started & stopped on a rear widebody project early this year, flashrust over metal that still has shaping walnuts is really embarrassing.

No doubt, that takes a special kind of OCD ;), W.A.R does some really nice work also with metal. I'm not so proud that I can't admit that I can't achieve those results without the help of filler of some sort to get it that straight. My hats off to those guys with that skill set.
Wow! Thanks for the props my friend:cool:

I for one really admire and am envious of those that have that skill set. When I see that level of craftsmanship I just get at a loss for words and wish I could get to that level. The absence of time is the one factor along with some of the speciality tools required and a teacher (A teacher/mentor is a big one).

Keep up with the work and please show some, it really starts a fire burning in those pushing their skill sets and is really interesting to watch the progress.

I didn't want to post any pictures because I was afraid someone might ask that. The last time you saw it was after I put epoxy on it, and I'm giving it time to cure good. Hopefully in a couple years it will be good enough to continue, but I am eager to start again, and when I do I'll post it. BYW, It was originally yellow and white, but I decided to make it black with red and black interior, just seems to make sense.
I've been wanting to ask for awhile since last we spoke about it. Truly impressive work that I'm sure will be stunning when completed and the fact that no mud used to get it that way is one hell of a bragging right. Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing the progress.

I'm one of those always pushing the skillsets and in a lot of what I get into there aren't too many to look up to. I got the talent, but get very little time to really get into improving the skills. Any nice metal work displayed here does help start the fire back burning. Can be a completely different project, doesn't matter. I'm thankful to having a few good metal guys here.
So what is good paint without great bodywork ? Guess it could be a riddler winner .:rolleyes::mad:
