Whooa, what a weekend! Just got back from the Sydney Hot Rod Show.

Was up till 2am Friday night working on the franken-tiki. The candy green paint didn't work, so I had to make a last minute run to the hardware store to buy some custom mix "bright f***ing green". It's too cold at night down here so I painted it in the bathroom with the heat lamps on Anyway I donated him for auction, he got $100 for the Sydney Children's Hospital.

I sold the pirate tiki to the editor of Aussie mag Cruzin, and have a few guys interested in other tiki stuff too.

I'll post pics when I can

Oh yeh, I also got some cool tiki/pinstriped art

Thanks folks

This a Ferrari 360, with candy apple red paint and twin turbos.


That bright green thing sitting on the floor behind it in the left of the photo is the unfinished franken-tiki. Hoping to post some of my pics up later today.

way to go with the sales Hewey, and Especially for the donation to the kidz hospital, We certainly need more of that going on. Your Frankentiki looks like he might be kinda Cool with that Frankengreen color.

Thanks Ben Better the Children's Hospital than some kid who doesn't exist and no Scottish clown doctors in sight either!

Here's the pirate and the eyeless franken-tiki. Gotta love that mop on him. he's a bit basic, but time frame was very short. Pinstriped panels are by Neo Dutch


Once again I got to make some mess


The result of the mess


Franken tiki in all his glory. Yes, he's very bright. Look how closely he matches my business cards. Would have liked to paint more details in the eyes, and straighten the bolts up a bit.


What's that Neo Dutch bloke painting now?


ooh, that came out nice!

I don't know if a bright green Franken-tiki is best described as 'class', but he is kinda cool! Thanks for the compliment though

Hey Hewey, did you ever carve anything out of that refrigerator sized chunk of AAC/Hebel?

Haven't bought one of those blocks yet, at the time I was just looking into it. To make it worth it, I want to buy 4 or so, so the overall cost/block isn't too bad. Problem is finding the time to carve 4 blocks that big, especially when there's a good chance I'll be moving in the next 6 months or so - the less crap to lug around the better!

Well, there's not much to update. The big guy hasn't been touched since Easter, and I haven't done any carving since the hot rod show. BUT, my brother's wedding is in like 3 weeks. I was trying to think of what I could get him, since I wanted something personal. They've been living together for years, so they're pretty much set up (yep, they got a toaster ). Anyway, it dawned on me that we wants a tiki for his beer garden. Soooo, Im gonna put in a MONSTER effort and try and get this guys finished in 3 weeks! Looks like I've got some late nights out in the cold coming up This also means I won't be doing the plasma ball thing, likely he'll just get a fancy headdress, or maybe a modified solar powered tiki style lamp...
