quotes- happy customers-

Guess who's got the sexiest frame in the county?  Yep.....that's right...ME!  Looks great Eric...surpasses all expectations.  What's the little plunger-looking doo-hickey that was taped to it?  Something for the brakes?  
Son's going to work on getting it cleaned up tomorrow in prep. for a little flat black.  Onward and upward!

Talk to ya later,  Aaron

I left the m/c plunger taped to the frame by mistake.
Aaron is up in MT building a 1929 sedan - look for updates

That'd be awesome. 

Thanks for the quick reply! 

Also, the frame is far exceeds my expectations! Super nice work man! 

Above is a quote from Cole in Texas, he's building a 1930 coupe.
Cool looking body that needs some real structural reworking.
We're going to give him a hand on that..

sitting on the frame we built for him

had to take into account that the cowl has been trimmed off short.
will not be using the large recess when we're done.
