ordered the new inner patch panels today. for $40.00 you can,t make them! cleaned up the outer lower patch panels and will reuse them. I rebuilt the window channel runs today so now I have to see if I can get the top screws free so I can remove the top of the door to slide the glass in place. there is a lot to these little fuckers!

I am totally honored to have won the VOODOO KINGS CHOICE award. It has got to be the Coolest trophy of not only the night but of all time. Not only is it a trophy but a peice of art. It was so cool to see these dudes with million $$$ cars getting these gay little plaques with no charecter at all then I get this giant 4.5 feet trophy for a car that has less money in it than most of the "show cars" tiers. I couldn't be more excited about my first trophy. It totally Rules it didnt even fit in the car I had lay it across the back seat. And it has action to it. the head and arms move with a spring balanced with gears on the inside. Another bonus was I was bidding on Voodoo Larrys pinstriping all weekend in the art auction and getting out bid but now I have it on my trophy. Thank you Larry, Susan, Shawn and the rest of the Voodoo Kings.
Well the 2010 MOTORAMA was a blast it was a great time next year should be even bigger and better. The World of wheels was the best I hve been to in years and the motorama section put on By Voodoo Larry and his wife Susan was out of this world. The Voodoo kings were all great guys and gals they had some great bands and a cool pinup contest. The cars were out of this world and the whole show had an old autorama vibe to it right down to all the old styled signs that were hanging up. In short Larry and the Voodoo Kings put on a great show. It was worth every penny for a 3 day event. And as far as Rosemont convention center goes it was 100% better than McCormick Place way cheaper on everything from food to parcking you could have a good time for 3 days and not break the bank. I will be there next year and hope to seee more of you all next year as well.
