    1st gen or 2nd gen?

    So you buy a VCV that's been punched in the face but you've got a new front end skin to make it right. You know a guy with a frame rack and he has some skills. Should be no problem eh?

    Ya just gotta love a neighborhood that tolerates a full-on frame rack in the driveway. I'm guessing things are a little different on the other side of the Mississippi river.

    I am continuously amazed by the metal work I see many of you can do and do! Give me a chunk of wood, I'm all over it! Metal, no so much... Nice!
