It is hard to answer folks that ask how it is going or what's new. Or to keep a running dialogue or 'blog' style info. So, for that here are random photos of things progressing. When photos are available and so forth. Usually a month or so behind real time but still shows the steps and changes being made.





Photos as we have available here and there and while working on the remake of the 1972 Camaro.
These photos will be 2014 and forward mostly. A lot of times it's just busy and I forget to take photos!
