    OK ! ! Taking a totally different direction in an attempt to get completed by the 1st. Not sure if it'll happen or not but here it goes anyway. The poster board mock ups are gone and I am leaning towards an old school chopper look. No where near what I originally had planned but this is where my thoughts are going now. We'll see how it goes and hopefully I'll post some new pics tomorrow. :roll:

    So, the sanding process caused some patriotic ideas to run through my head. Not sure why....

    You might have to change the name of your build.

    How 'bout "Easy Nightmare"? Because this year has definitely been a nightmare to complete.
