    Exit Time, But not the end of the Journey

    Hi Everyone

    @ Ma, thankyou:thumbup:

    The Project, “32 Boss Rod”

    Chapter 1: Concept & approach some OCAU members for their precipitation & help with this

    Chapter 2: The Plan is set in place, the Build begins & Hardware arrives

    Chapter 3: Hell’s & mad_mic3 exit

    Chapter 4: Another member/s time to take possession of the rod
    The other members take over & play their parts
    This is where they also take over this build log

    Songs playing in my head at the time,
    Little Deuce Coupe, The Little old Lady from Pasadena, Little Red Corvette & Mustang Sally

    Well after a couple of long days to finish this up ready for a road trip to its next part of the journey

    My final drive, head south to the capital of Australia, yes ”Canberra”

    Polishing the Rod

    Hi Everyone

    Being upfront & Transparent

    Due to some unforeseen reasons I requested 32 Boss Rod be returned to my place so the project can get finished off

    Ok, so I be working on this project & Death from Above, if you’s are patient I’ll get them finished as quick as I can

    So along the way I’ll be making a couple of changes, I’m not going to point them out, I’ll leave it to you’s to pick them out

    After receiving some negative feedback about the original centre line rims being to plain, ive made some time to change the rims & tyres out to a different design

    Old skool Tech drawing;)

    Cut out the shape, add some masking tape to the back & use as a templete
