You'll do GREAT. I'm sure you'll give Stage a run for his money!!!

I really wish I was going with you. It'd be huge fun.

Rock on sister, and go get 'em.

New Project!

Socket Holster



At first I bolted on some logos. I didn't like the bolts so I branded the roll itself.





I had 3 ways to oil the leather: none, a little or soak it. So, I tried all 3. The soak it thing got away with me so I didn't get the logo to stand out like I wanted. I think the lightly oiled look on the lid looks the best. I still need to get some studs to hold down the lid but that would require a trip to the store and I may have been drinking

Btw, Blue Moon Seasonal is on sale for $12.49 at the Publix on the East-West Connector Now, back to studying.

FYI - BMWBLAKE on the left, Brad center, and Blaine on the right. They're talking about the BMW in front of them, that belongs to Bill Kurtz at Atlanta BMW. It's a '81 G/S that's been cafe'd. I'm not a fan of cafe'ing in general, but this one is bad ass. Moman, Beater (me), atlthrux, and several more were there ... a good showing, and a great time. Let me see if I can find a pic of that cafe job.
