Thank you Pops.
I think back about how I started and it's scary.
12 or 13 years old and making goalie masks.
My brother Jerry and I loved hockey and he
was the goalie.
I got the glass, resin, plaster of Paris and all
the other stuff with instructions. Poor guy but
he toughed it out.
No tools in our house back then. My late dad
was a rep who sold clothing so we had a pliers,
Yankee screwdriver and a claw hammer.
When I see needle files/jeweller's files I want
to throw up. The drill was a bit with rag wrapped
around it and it was used like a guy trying to start a fire.
I guess if the goalie mask projects never put me off nothing would.
BTW, Jerry has a beak not unlike Jimmy Durante so his mask was distinctive.
We didn't want another Terry Sawchuck around!!!!!!.
Kids dream and I thought I was going to end up in Canada playing
Junior A and I came close but it turned out all the hockey masks
was a career for the future.
Funniest thing about getting older is the memory. Mine is great, It's just too darn short!!!!.
I was trying to fit the oil tank and needed to hold it by the filler cap but the cap wasn't there.
When I put clear coat on the tank originally I taped the threads on the lid so now i'm looking
for this cap. Did I actually make one or was I going to rob the one off the Harley?
4 hours later I get this bright idea that I took pics of the tank with all the fittings. Hunted those down
and then it dawned on me that I'd hidden it with all the good stuff in the special cabinet.
One needs to make a list of the components and their location. Someone suggested XL!!!.
The Bavarian Murder Weapon to Mazda 6 Pro mod conversion is coming along and paying the bills.
Apparently the original "tooling'' was created by using a 2014/5 M3 two door. The builder with no
composite skill got 2 guys to vynil wrap the entire car covering everything and then he got another
two geniuses to do the moulds. R150/day labour is about 8 or 10 bucks so you know what kind of
job they turned out.
Then they had the ball bearings to produce a body and proceeded to rake and chop the roof.
I'm turning Kyle's dream into my nightmare but I need the dough. Nothing is symmetrical and 1/2''
differences are turning up all the time. Check the result of my version of the "Mazda" roof/trunk profile.
To cut and shape the 4mm ABS plastic to fit the frame taught me a few things though.
Now there's a composite wing thrown in for good measure.
