Here is a quick update on my progress. I decided that i need to build the skin twice. the design part is killing me. So i rough it in,cover with paper, if it looks OK i will through some scrap sheetmetal at it which helps me look at it better and tells me the limits/size of the panel i may need in the final panel. But more than likley it turns to crap and then I start over again............Learning as i go.

It is starting to look like somthing. Ray

I love the shape of the back.
Simple, but looks great.

Here's Advice for Anyone taking on a Project of like this.

1) Don't give Up!
2) When Frustrated Walk Away and take a Break.
3) When you Return Think Positive and Keep at it.

Many Days of this.....













To get to this.....
