yeah man, I was pretty much rained out today, and I need to get my truck fixed, so I'll probably head back weds or thurs, and yeah, I have more to do at the Beachhouse & probably Mar Vista after that so yeah, I may be down there for awhile. Call me & let's meet up for a beer or something - 813-748-4887.

I just stumbled on this thread today- awesome collection of work- from the cedar to the retro bikes and all, and now to the big time- congrats! Hope you find some time to work on that 66 'phoon and can post some progress photos.

yeah man, the 66 typhoon is at the powder coaters shop. He's been searching high and low for a color that is as close as possible to metallic Schwinn coppertone, left me a voicemail 2 days ago saying that this week he should have it done. I also stripped an old star crank out of a 60's AMF roadmaster that I'm using as well. Besides that: apes, white seat & grips, etc. Hopefully I'll be riding it soon, but for now "old red"('59 rollfast) is getting the job done. She's my fave.

And thanks for the props bro.

Rollfast-built to last. Nice ride- I'm thinking i may have seen her before on a retrobike website with a group of tikis in the background? Classic cruiser - man you are livin' the dream.

Well, I drug the hot rod tiki out & finished him up for my buddy Dallas.

He is complete with flames, frankenstein neck bolts, a wrench in his hands, and a german helmet on his head.

Heading back to Anna Maria this weekend to do some hustling & scare up some residential jobs...

yeah, the more I look at it, the arms & hands just look like shit. I'm gonna have to re-do them for sure.

Happy with the rest of it though.

So tomorrow I'm heading back to Anna Maria to get back on it. When I was out there working at the Beachhouse, the mgr for the sister restaurant, called "Mar Vista", was really stoked on what I was doing & asked me to come down there to put a number on doing some tiki stuff. I am really hoping that my bid has been approved & I can start working on it this week.

I'm stoked on the big tiki I did at the Beachhouse and so are they, but that's the first really big fixed / in-the-ground piece I've done, and I learned a few lessons along the way. I don't know why, maybe just because of the magnitude of getting such a great gig, but I was a little scared when I started it. "Oh God, what it they're not happy?...what if they don't pay me?...what if, what if, what if????" I barely slept for 2 days prior to starting...

But things went awesome, I got a completely ridiculous amount of media coverage for both myself AND the Beachhouse, and they're super stoked on all of it. So I feel more confident now & feel like I can really blow it out this second time around. There's a huge dead palm right there in front of the outdoor seating area in front of the river. You can't be in that little seating area and not see it. It's a perfect and beautiful place for a tiki. The setting demands something awesome. I'm thinking a sick Lono or ku. Full body, huge headdress, etc. I really hope they give me the green light.

Other than that, I figure that since I'm in the local paper this week I need to get out there and do some hustling and get some residential jobs too. You can see me in the little blurb at the very top of the page...
