Bill gave up trying to make this work, I guess he couldn't find fabric accurate enough to look right and make the bends. I would love to see what this dude could do with hydraulics. He'd probably have real fluid and working slowdowns.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, lots of smart asses, but some of us want to help. If you haven't already, check out the "Model Links" thread and check out my sig in the resin cars section and "lowriders-not mine" section for some cool models.

be warned, people WILL jump on your case if you ask a question that has been asked before. Take a minute to scroll thru some of the old pages, lots of cool stuff and info in there that might be on your mind already

Welcome homie.

Try and relax a little. You seemed a little nervous in the last sentence. You're among friends here. It's cool! :cool:
