How did you ever get the saddlework tooling on the exhaust pipe and tail pipe without punching a hole through it, or collapsing the muffler or tube? That is something I have never seen before!

Unbelievable level of detail and workmanship. Congratulations on a gorgeous artistic creation.

Hat's off to you, David, and Preacherman for the OUTSTANDING work you've done on Bent!

I just spent the last 4 hours or so reading every post on this thread and am in awe at the work you did, and the next level that David and Preacherman have taken the project to.

Simply stunning!

I just joined this forum so I could post this message and let you, David and Preacherman know how inspiring this thread is.

Very, very cool work by all involved!

Amazing that it started off with your buddy taking you buy a welder... LOL!

Fantastic and can't wait to see the completion!

Thank you for a VERY inspiring afternoon.

Kind regards,


PS - Very sorry to hear about Brian. You can bet he's looking down smiling with the all the crazy stuff going on with this project...

Glad to see you're still on the case Skim, I knew those hands wouldn't be idle! LOL

Super detail on the side project, when do you sleep?

Looking forward to seeing the '61 finished, she can't be far off now

this one has a 5.7 LS1 in it. I really want to get the 61 done but I cant seem to stick to one car at a time so i tend to jump around but I always come back to the 61.

I'm new to this forum, I joined while I was reading this build. I got to the end and am wondering if anyone knows if there is more to this story elsewhere on this website? I really enjoyed following this build, the work done was incredible, hope to see the finished product.

Skim hasn't posted in over a year. Considering he isn't a spring chicken he may have joined his friend in that body shop in the sky. I don't know.
