Nice work Chris,
I love the alloy fabrication work that's pure talent mate. I need to pull my finger out and get some more work done on my GT40 but alas other projects are getting in the way....

Remarkable workmanship. All involved are true craftsman.
As a aside, some information on the old green truck/ute in the background would be much appreciated. That is a thing of beauty.

Thanks Chris
Hopefully it will end up as a nice restored street rod one day.
The styling of that "ute" is amazing and needs no modifications.
