Amazing, simply amazing! You sure have some talent. Hats off to you for even thinking of attempting this project.

Dan Wong 04-04-2014 06:48 PM

Gotta hand it to u
 
Man-o-man, that is some project !!. Looking back, are you glad or regretted tackling this project?

2NewRVers 04-04-2014 08:09 PM

That's awesome, did you do it within the budget you thought it would initially cost? I've built cars from the ground up but that project looks like a whole lot of work.

dvmweb 04-04-2014 08:33 PM

Terry,
Dude, this is epic. I am subscribed. If you ever go to "Up North Michigan" get in touch with me, we'll have a spot for you to plug in a sit a while. I don't even know you and I like you.

Just For Fun 04-04-2014 08:35 PM

WOW!!!!

Simply WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

One question - while it may appear a nosy one - what do you do for a full time living that affords you that much time off?!?!?!?!

Where did you get all of the incredible talent?????

dons2346 04-04-2014 09:34 PM

Sammie 04-04-2014 09:44 PM

Will it be able to pass the smog compliant test in California when finished? Just kidding! You are the MAN.

Sammie :bow:

Fred1609 04-04-2014 09:46 PM

That's an incredible undertaking. What's your estimate in terms of time and money on this project?
