  • Re: Plastic Fantastic tew

    No gripe from me! Now if you'd just put in a BBB or something interesting!

    Dan
    why would I waste my BBB on this? be like truffles with cheese whiz.... both good, but together - all you can say is "why?"

                Do you ever get to the point where you step back and look at the frame after you've done some work on it and think that you should have built a frame from scratch instead?

                  If I was building a show car, - then maybe, but it's an order of magnitude of several times harder to build a frame from scratch (which is the plan for the 50 Buick). That said, if I was to build a frame, I'd do all of this first, then digitize it, then build the new frame. Not just that, but if I wanted to run in 'old' classes at the autocross, I need the numbers that are stamped on the frame about where the driver's seat is....

                    Even restubbing bent cars is a pain!
                    Doubt I'd do anything differently...

                      and it's possible that I will be having this digitized.... I've had more then a little interest in this frame...

                        I was told by my wife that I cannot work on this tonight.... she said something about 10th anniversary.... not sure what that's about, but since I kind of like her - I'll go with it
