Once again, thanks for all your input guys. This is why I love TC. Don't worry kustomtiki, that print isn't going anywhere & once I move the tiki stuff to the tiki side, you'll see a lot more of my kustom stuff including the Barris & Roth print that Robert Williams did, autographed by both.

Wow, you have got a lot of cool things in this space. I spy, a lot of interesting pieces! I'm loving those lamps and can't wait to see all the progress photos. I have to say the bike was the first thing that caught my eye. And to think my brothers and I use to ride those back in the day. And we were thinking about how cool we were back then. I can only imagine how great your son feels riding his blue devil around. He's going to remember that bike and how you had it upgraded for him for a long time. Nice work. More photos,please.

Thanks for the positive feedback, Tikipaka! I think my room is one of those that you will see something new everytime you look at the pictures. All of my tiki stuff is in the room, but half of my Hot Rod & Kustom Kulture stuff is still packed away. I will start on that side of the room after the tiki side. I'll post pics of that side on Beyond Tiki when the time comes.

Great space to work with Big Kahuna. Believe it or not I have a 250 lbs bomb also. I have had it for years and wondered too if it could fit into my lounge. The pinup art work is a great idea. Here are some great examples to work from. Keep up the good work.

Tits and Tikis go together without a doubt.

The room is showing great promise. I love the idea of the Hawaiian pin-up art on the bomb. Another option would be to paint a Japanese flag on it and mount it bustin' through the ceiling like your lounge is located in Pearl Harbor 1941 (it that even less PC than BooBen's "tits" comment?)

Still looking for artifacts? Tikisgrl found a matchbook for the Mauna Kai, posted here. Maybe you can acquire it from her? (bottom of the page)

Never even came across this post before but I like your style there BK.

I am loving the mix of items you have accumulated and I can't wait to see how it all comes together.

That bomb would look great with some pin striping for sure and of course the obligatory hula honey .

Keep posting updates.

Frozen solid & flat broke! I've got next week off, so there should be some progress. I'll post pics. Once the swap meet season starts up, I'll be able to make some extra dough & really get to work. Until then, I have to rely on fleabay. I've been poring over the pics of everyone else's lounges, as well as BOT & the classic Tiki bars taking notes & stealing ideas. The overall plan is becoming clearer each day. I can't wait to finish it & throw my first shindig!

PROGRESS! Nothing Earth shattering, but I got the dropped ceiling down on the tiki side, which is threatening to take over the whole room, & finally hung the $5.00 swag lamps I scored last Fall. I still can't believe I scored those lamps for $5.00 apiece!







I also got the bright idea to put a red light behind this guy:


I would like some input on finishing the ceiling. I've had a couple of thoughts. I'm definitely using real fishnet on the whole thing, but I'm not sure what to do underneath it. I was thinking of painting or staining everything dark brown or covering everything with burlap. Your thoughts & input would be greatly appreciated.
Mahalo,
Rick

P.S.: Settle down, Ben! The white walls will be the next to go!
