    Sorry About the lack of updates lots going on here i am in the process of buying the cafe that i have been running so been lots of paperwork and lawers to deal with i tore the body off to do the rack for the cdrom but it got sidelined due to the purchase.

    Surfice it to say this is not dead just on hold for a little Who knew there was so much to deal with to just buy a little cafe.

    Damn Lawyers have to make things so complicated.

    Will be nice to get this purchase out of the way so can move on to more fun things.

    Is the cafe going to have a modders workshop where you pay per hour/2 hour block and get to use tools, buy materials and mod computers away from home?

    If so, sign me up!

    Sweet about you buying the cafe :thumb: I'm in need of a new job ya know.... Any openings? :D I go to school not too far from your cafe, I know the area (well, not really), I'm very apt with computers (hardware and software), and I learn very quickly, and I'll be your lackie/slave whenever needed :D (seriously, I need a second job). Figure you'll drop the price down a bit? Like to me personaly $5/h is a little high given that I have a piss poor job, even if you lower it to $4/h I'm sure you'll find good profits (and yes, I know a membership entails a $1/h drop in prices, maybe lower the membership drop to $0.50 so you arn't totaly losing out on cash flow). Hopefuly I'll have time to drop in tomorrow there, maybe I can verbaly bash some lawyers with my anti-legal mumbo-jumbo (lawyer slang) for ya, get emm to work faster or sommat :D :p



    Oh, and to have some relivence to your project (after all, this is a project log :worried: ), fixed the headlight yet? :D

    Heh, I'm new here and just starting to mod.

    I've got to say this is the most inspiring PC mod I've seen! It's beautiful and you can tell the effort and time you put into your mods. I've seen only 2, the customer one that canceled and this hummer and I like them a lot.

    BTW congrats on your new purchase. If I was in the area I would drop by, but I'm in T.O :blah: Anyway, hope to see some cool updates!

    Finally Back

    Well have the purchase all done now and it is all mine so been doing lots here to make the cafe better and will now have some time to work on some stuff.

    Quick update just got the magazine article for the hummer and got a 2 page spread i was thirlled to say the least as well it is on the front page so really happy about that and now have a little more motivation to get some more stuff done.

    Found the Next Body that i want to do going to be a Chevrolet SSR Pickup but i will save that for anouther thread

    Also going to reserect the Chrome case i was doing for the one customer still like that mod and want to see it done.

    So that is all for now and will be here a little more now that i have some space to breath and mod

    just saw this, it's amazing!!

    ever thought of ripping out the batteries and electronics for the RC, shoving in a UPS and powering the car from the molex connector? control it with the parallel/serial port or something.

    I am still here had to put stuff on hold as there was alot going on around here but i am getting back into the grind.

    I have the SSR Pickup on the go as well as i will be reserecting the Customer tribal comp still have the panels and will be sending anouther case in to get chromed

    I also have a easy one with a cool jimmy hendrix mural on it this one is not getting to much done on it just the mural and going to do a purlple light theme on it call it purple haze have a few other things to do on it as well but not to much.

    But more about that on anouther thread.

    Also ended up with a Shuttle case that looks like it needs some attention so might see what to do with it
