I drew and built my frame. Everything was done at home in a 12′ x 24′ shed or out in the yard, weather permitting.
I purchased the start of this project by trading for it piece by piece traded a 1929 Mercedes Benz kit car for the project and a lot of other old goodies to make this build happen.
All my parts were found on local buy and sell sites. After reading blogs about what parts were compatible with each other, I searched out parts that fit my budget, and would work together.
Let’s start this new year off right, let’s start telling the stories again and get some new material.
