Thanks Uncle John ! for your kind comment! yes im happy how it came out , the paint job took some time ,i did 6 layers of clear coat ,and 3 collor coats, these lace pick ups are splended !  i keep lots , i like to play them atleast a while ,before they go ! I know what you mean about Ford, i love the old one's because of comedy Capers the silent Movies from when i was a child, but the person ford i do not like he was in the friends circle of the world mass murderer Adolf Hitler . and believe that was a bad move on his behalf ! But the Cars are Iconic "Mustang" the other famous brands of the USA are not availeble for us europeans, but im no AGP # yet !!

Andries, this one looks fantastic!  That hubcap was too small to as a three or four string.  You did it just right and everything about it looks right.  And that pickup was good to use here and I bet it sounds great.

I am curious or nosy--  how many home mades have you kept for your own?  This one sure looks like a keeper.

A couple of Americanisms about FORD cars and trucks.  The people who like other brands say FORD stands for Fix Or Repair Dally and Found On Road Dead.

I happen to be a Ford truck and SUV fan, but those sayings are still funny.
