You need to get a Mack truck Bulldog hood ornament and put on there. I have one I am gonna put on mine, but I thought it would really go well with your build and project name.

French the bulldog and put some lexan over it.

That didn't sound right.

Had a great day in the garage today!

I'd love to show y'all some pictures, but none were taken.





And that's because absolutely nothing got done other than some good BSing with Bulldog and a visitor all the way from Florida. Fernon is a really cool guy despite what everyone says! It was great to hang with you today.

I even gave him a new idea for his car, now to see if he will take on the challenge...

this sounds like almost everytime I go into my garage!

Since I have my old laptop out there, I wind up just drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and bullshitting on IRC while listening to music..

although, I am slowly getting the engine out of my bike.. I would try and get some more sandblasting done to the bugs engine compartment, but I'm normally out there from about 11pm to 2 or 3am.. don't think my neighbors want the air compressor running during those hours..

Rob & Matt, First off I want to thank the both of you for taking the time out of your day and letting me hang with you guys, I had a great time BS'n with you guys and the Volksrod is really looking nice, you guys have done a great job with that car, like I was telling you there is a lot on that car that nobody will ever even notice or appreciate the amount of work that went into getting it to that point.

I have to say I hate you guys for that idea...
You know I'm just dumb enough to try it...


Oh and by the way I am sitting in a Starbucks typing this...


I know you guys would get a kick out of that...

Once again Thank You for everything and if you are ever in the Dirty South don't hesitate to stop on by.

Why do you have to "put your two cents in,"
but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
Where's that extra penny going to?


Just remember saying I'm sorry and appologizing are the same thing.
Unless you are at a funeral.

Bulldog, this is one of my all time favorite builds. I think it will almost be a shame to see this car finished. I've been out of the game for over 6 months and it's good to see the work progress on this car. Keep it up bro.

Its coming along. I hope to get it on the road this coming year one way or the other. Trans raise was cleaned up a bit, SS fuel lines run through the tunnel, new SS brake and clutch lines run as well. Sounds like I may have an affordable option to powdercoat the pan. that wasnt the plan but cheap and easy so why not!?

Couple more pics:

After not having a lot of time lately to work on the car, the last two weekends I have finally found my way back out to the garage. Since it is for the most part in the bodywork stage, pics don't always show the progress. But anyhoot, on to the pics...



















Oh and I did do a tiny bit of fabrication and added a filler piece to fill in the bottom of this side panel.
