Not surprised. It's hard for many people who don't or can't make things to comprehend that others can. At the same time, it's easy for them to think that it came from some company-especially a company with a special machine.

Congratulations.

Here is a update on my cars. So now the gray car has 7k miles on it. I drive it almost every day. Rain or shine. AC/Heat etc... Nothing has fallen off yet. no panel cracks. Gotta watch the nose on curbs.
My aluminum roadster maybe 200 miles......static display i guess. Both have pluses and minuses. the coupe is just more real world friendly. Don't know what to do with myself in the shop. don't need another car. Have done some fab on some buddies cars. put out to pasture i guess.
Going for coffee in the coupe.......later, Ray

Congrats on the successful outcome with both your rides. They look fantastic and I'm glad you're enjoying them in their natural habitat ... on the street be it a few hundred miles or several thousand!

That's terrific.


Make room for a new project? Maybe sell the one that's not being used and let someone enjoy it? Cars just love to be driven, not parked.

Saw a bead roller die on amazon that will cut louvers, I took a chance, $80

It kinda works. and you can do curved ones!
