Andy in PA update

Small update.
His " frames ahoy" post didn't have any pictures.
So here it is now in his garage at home.
cut the pallet down and build a square stool like a small crate !

When Andy was out and about he ran into Jason from
from the Gasket Goons car club .
If you have ever talked to me about sedans I probably sent
you a picture of his. Great hot rod, simple and to the point.
(on a Riley Automotive frame )

 hope to get some photo shoot style pic's of it to share real soon

Wayne's truck update

Thanks for sending the pictures and the note.
Bob's my main welder. I'll pass along the kind words.
And send those updates asap !

Hi EriC, Wayne here from W.V. I purchased one of your frames last fall. I have been meaning to send you some pics  and am finally getting around to it. I am much farther along now but will send more pics later if you want them. I have all the suspension complete as well as all the brakes, also have the bed completed. The cab still needs blocked and primed but will soon be ready for paint. I will mention that I am very pleased with the frame and especially the nice looking welds. I was a welder for thirty years so I know a good weld when I see one. I will stay in touch.
