It looks to me to be his ride built the way he likes, while I understand the safety aspect of the cage, how many of us have gone flying across the desert in a Baja without a cage at all. I like the look of this project and hope to see more updates on it.

Dave, Keep up the good work, and keep posting updates. Nothing wrong with what you are building. Looks like some nice metal work on the body so far.

And yes we DO want to see your build here. Most people wouldnt be able to take on a build like this.

Alright.....Im a unconventional builder Dave.
I see new ways in building everyday.
Thats the beauty of this business so to say.
As for our shop.....my brother is alot like Richard in being Tech and to the book.....ill refer to him as a purist.
Sometimes our ideas mess and sometimes they collide.
My best kept secret is Building while he's away..lol
Keep up the sweat equity and those rear fenders are giving me some ideas for my 72 ghia.....Thank YOU

Dave, last time a couple of us went out in the desert I sent my bros car off a. 4 foor cliff without even wearing a seatbelt and there was no cage in it. So the motto I've heard is if ur not riding in it, don't worry about the safety of it. He's putting his 2 cents in, I believe u should keep up the great work and hope to see it hit the dirt!!

I really hope he updates the status, "this looks like a really cool build". Keep up the great work!

I sent him a PM when all the criticism started and I encouraged him to continue posting pics and updates. Unfortunately, he did not reply and under the circumstances do not expect him to reply.

If you come to the site seeking answers to questions and receive criticism on your efforts, you are logically going to dismiss the site. I fear we have lost someone who potentially had a lot to offer and a build that was interesting to follow.

Well said and I agree. "Members should understand some builds are restricted by a very small budget, "and the owner never intends to hammer the car as some members do" Still a shame, looked like a interesting project.

Dave, I think that there are more of us here that love the work you are doing and want to say sorry for the bad air. Please dont take it the wrong way and go away. We want to see your ride and the work you are doing on it.
