          Very nice!

          It's funny how the great guys make it look so easy. I took one of Ron Fournier's classes and it's a blast to shape anything the way they do.

                yep it would be hard to paint over that kind work.
                maybe use a torch to add some color then clear coat it. that would look way cool.

                  WOW the first is very nice work. nice to have some thing to copy from though. but thats some great fab work. the second one looks like a kit u could buy awhile ago. there was a company here in red deer that was building them very nice kits though. they built a convertible one for a guy in B.C.. the kits were called some thing like a "catvee" very cool.

                        i have another pic of the hummer some where and seems like its not the kit but i have heard of the kit. seems like it was brought up last time i saw this guy's. i'll see if i can find more info on this one.
                        if its a kit i cant see the advantage to it as he had to cut and weld all the pices. this pic shows the body in plain steel. the kit was plastic or fiber wasent it ??

                          no as far as i know the kit was made from steel but u still had to cut and form all of it ur self, just came with blueprints. motor and all that other good stuff was up to u.

                              yeah the kit was a little vague but i believe that they did offer one the came with preformed pieces but the guys i know that were doing them were using the "less" complete kit. ill see if they still have a web site.
