The Model T Sedan is almost done. The Tiki interior is not in it yet...that's the next thing..but here is some progress. You can't tell in the pics but the green is a radical metal flake.






More to come.

Dam, that Munster Car is the same color as the stones in here.
That paint job is so perfect it doesn't look real.

Ok..well the BilletProof trophy is essentially as done as it's gonna get. Here are some pics:





The trophy is for the Real Mill category. Someone...the "Winner" will have to lug this home with them. Hopefully it doesn't wind up in a dumpster...since I actually worked for a while on it.

Now today we drove around a bit in the Tiki sedan. I put in the shift knob today..the rest of the bamboo interior is not in yet...here is hot it looks so far:





I will post more pics when the interior is done.

Tim,

The Real Mill winner will be getting a great trophy. Congratulations on a great carve. Good on you for taking the time to make something with heart.

The shifter looks right at home in the tiki rod. I'll really enjoy that feature and the personal touch in my new rod.

-G$

Ditto what G Said, Excellent tikis, Love the gear shifter knob. I'll stand guard by the dumpster to rescue that tiki should anyone decide to toss'em in there however I expect my stay will be for an extended amount of time as No One in their right mind would want to get rid of this trophy. NICE!
Also, that "T" has FUN written All Over it. Cool!

Hey...Thanks for the kind words...I think the shift knob is the best thing I have carved so far. I'm nowhere near the GMAN! Although you certainly can see his influence on my carving. I still lack the vision so many carvers on the board have. Hopefully it will develop soon.

Hot rods...now thats a different story. We can build some hot rods.

GMAN...get your ass to BilletProof this weekend!

Here was my Tiki Trophy at BilletProof in the middle of all that welded metal.
The winner seemed to like the carving. He has a 32 Ford Tudor with a 1957 DeSoto hemi in it. He drove it all the way from GA to Ocala.

The show was GREAT.
