Quoted from High_End_Pins:

I have traced the original path out

Such a good tracer

#1354 1 year ago

Naw, looks a little crooked. But no worries I can take it off your hands free of charge

#1380 1 year ago

What do you place between the pf to keep the new safe from scratching, when you are drilling?

#1525 1 year ago

Me too, I am waiting on my F-14 to get back and crazy scared to be putting it under a old one,with nothing in between. But hey, if one of the best restore guys does it.

#1564 1 year ago

I have also wondered this!

#1590 1 year ago

Mmmmmmmmm, Bourbon county stout!

So do you work out because you drink beer.
Or, so you can drink beer?
Wife's on my butt saying that my new year's res is to go on a diet! She says she misses my old military bod
Only thing is, is that it was not my choice. The military does not give you a choice

I like aspects of both Whirlwinds. But great job as always!

Who cares about ergonomically correct corners

Did tons of pyramids in the military. Some of the best work out regimens. Also we did one day burn outs a week. Where you work lowest start weight in pyramids and do as many reps as possible with 2 minute intervals, 3 reps.
My wife really misses my military bod as she calls it!!

#2194 10 months ago

#2491 10 months ago

Been there with the whole owner thing. My father and I did a lot of professional car painting and seen upset people. I have also seen people very pleased.
I grew tired of the nit pickers and haters! So i choose to be done with it.
I enjoy doing restorations for myself and will never do a pin for anyone, while I will do them and sell them so I can help keep the pins alive! As a hobby!!!
I love all the info I pick up on threads like this as it's helping me to learn. Thanks HEP, and you do great work!!

#2497 10 months ago

Oh I see what you did there!

#2502 10 months ago

I was thinking this myself this evening!

#2650 9 months ago

We are worried about you HEP!

#2703 9 months ago

Love how you use old mixing cups to put nuts and bolts in, been doing that forever. Something my dad started doing a long time ago.
Also some sad news from my neck of the woods. Our paint store is gone
My dad went there before I was even born, and used to take me there all the time when I was little. I will never forget the smell of a auto paint store! And I think the smell of bondo will always be my favorite! Just thought I would share.
Great job as always HEP!

#2720 9 months ago

Ahhhhh the old yellow primer. Works well with dusting black for a nice flat sanding job!

#2749 9 months ago

You can really tell the difference from manufacturing ground braid and do it yourself. Always looks cleaner and squared away!

1 week later

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

auto body industry

I can't tell you how many times I had rainbow colored boogers! That was back in the early 90's when my dad was teaching me how to paint cars. By the way what is a respirator anyway

#3395 6 months ago

Wife started us on a gym membership yesterday! Guess I will be following in your footsteps! Now on to that F-14 so I can get some tips for when I get my PF back from clear coating!!

#3418 6 months ago

I sure do miss the smell of our old paint store!!! They shut down over 2 yrs ago sniff,sniff!!!

That is a nice heavy looking coat on those rails.

Sounds like a good camp fire story!! Crazy man!!!

#3665 5 months ago

What about a coat of that epoxy flooring? Lays flat, easier to squeegee then tile. I don't know about adhering to flooring though.

#3710 5 months ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Curtis keeps working at it

Awesome! Keep up the great work, and remember, Pain is weakness leaving the body!!

#3775 5 months ago

#4044 4 months ago

Keep up the great work Curtis! Looks like me at the grill with a beer!

#4119 4 months ago

I just like Chris's beer selection

#4138 4 months ago

Very glad to hear the beer is ok! I would argue the choice on trimmer but to each his own. I am a huge stihl fan and always had good luck with them. Plus I am in good with the mechanic at the shop so that helps too. 2 chainsaws and a weed eater running like champs!
I agree on glossing up the ramp! Will stand out more!

#4248 4 months ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

I water sanded for hours with a paint paddle wrapped in sand paper.
