Had fun destroying the casting patterns today....I am working on pictures and a video clip. Suffice it to say, it involved a double barrel 20 GA shotgun, an AR-15, and a 1/4 lb of tannerite.

Jill's brother Nate and I had a good time.

Sorry. Cash only. I don't think I want to share half of anyone's left nut with Steve.

OK. I had a little fun putting this video together. Enjoy.

Let's blow something up!

C'mon V8! I need at least one!

On a side note, my grandpa busted a testi on the top rail of his bicycle when he was pedaling up a hill as a kid and his foot slipped.

Went on to have 7 kids after that.

Back on topic: that was a hell of a blast!

Glad everyone's hood ornaments are showing up and that you all like them. Can't wait to see some on Volksrods.

Got the first couple that are going overseas on their way this afternoon. One on its way to Belgium and one to Australia!

I am also really curious to see what people do with them finish-wise.

Leave them raw...

Smooth and polish...

Paint some areas and polish others...

Powdercoat...

Chrome Plate...

and of course where and at what orientation they mount them on the Volksrod....

BTW, little over 4 days left to bid on the Brass 02/02 one....

Limited run of 50 and they are all spoken for. I even have a wait list a dozen or so long....sorry.

The only one still "available" is the brass 2/2 one that is up for auction. Just need to be the high bidder at 11pm EDST this Friday. Current bid is $200.

Part of the deal was the exclusivity of only doing 50. The patterns are gone. Go back a couple of pages and read about the destruction.....
