The duck's wings are complete. Now a for few final details and final welds.

Thanks to @paulie_bacon_fingers and the BBT crew for the roller shelf. Now I can accumulate more crap and it's mobile! #welding #weldart #sofullgarage #garagestuff #flatlanders
Got ahold of some blank, raw wood #skateboard decks. Love the shapes, especially the coffin shaped one. If you're wondering what I'm doing with them, stay tuned to future posts! 😎🤔

How does in stand by itself? (And its straight)
I don't know, but as #edroth and #vondutch used to say "eyeballing it is the best way to get it right". #sofullgarage #welding #weldart #metalart #sculpture #junkart #art #workinprogress #wip
"So this one year at..." The Backyard Bike Builders meet in Muskegon, MI Derek @miller_custom_creations caught a duck at the campground and thought it'd be funny to put it in Tony's tent, since he went to bed early...well "early" by The Flatlanders standards...and it was...it was funny as hell!!! Since then Tony has embraced his duck fetish and asked me to create a So'full duck. He's been very patient and the right pieces finally presented themselves. This is not what I originally had in mind, but it seems fitting that a duck "fleeing the scene" makes sense. There's still a lot to add in detail...like  maybe shorten that giant Perry the Platypus bill...but I like the direction this has taken and I hope Tony does.

More killer #ratfink #swag from Mrs. Gard.

I was given this plaster #ratfink  statue as a gift from Mrs. Mary Gard. It was given to her and her husband Richard as a gift from #bigdaddy #edroth himself. Ed used to stay with them when he visited Casey, IL for the Shriners Parade...at Richard's suggestion. The only compensation Ed required was the plane ticket and ice cream. 
Mary it was great visiting with you, I look forward to our next encounter. Thanks again for all the cool stuff! I dig it!!!

Below is a link to a post from the So'full Garage blog after Richard's passing. 
RIP Mr. Gard

Well that turned out ok.
Wore down a bit of my fingernail before deciding to use a nail to "chalk" the lines.

Working out some ideas for a night light. Kinda looks like a rocket.

Video I took the other night of the engine finished, sans oil filer housing and being placed in chassis for pipes.

Doing a little "Derek Tribute" on this faux gas tank for a tricycle I'm working on for the kids. Man he'd dig the shit out of this.
#choppers #tricycle #kidsstuff #sofullgarage
Edit: SOLD 
The only listing left FOR SALE. There's even a little dude in there. (Well, except the trike but it hasn't really been listed yet). DM for details.

I guess I never posted a finished shot of this R2. He stands about a foot tall and is looking for a home. DM for pricing details and/or more photos.

Started fiddling with a power plant for the 70's trike.

After a brief hiatus, I took this #chopper #trike from mock up stage to production stage.

Moving on to the rest of the motor/rod. I think the engine is finished. And I don't think I'm putting on any kind of grill, leaving it open. Needs a few final welds and some cleaning up...but getting there.

I've been working on these damn header pipes for two hours and just finished them. I saw a potato masher today at Goodwill and thought "that should work". It had all the bends I felt I needed for the pipes on this rod. I cut em all to length in about five minutes but then getting them in place and lined up right was the challenge. There's no jig for this, and gloves are clumsy. So it's hold in place and tack, burn a finger, break it off cuz it's not right, clean up the metal, try again. I think I finally got em where I want em. Now onto the rest...

I tore up my thumb the day before last trying to work out a seat idea for this #hotrod 
So last night I got my revenge and not only got the seat lined out, but added the driver and the tail fins.
