I love the hot rod Lincoln. Was that some copper over the tungston canopy? Thanks for sharing the career photo. Time for a trophy case.

Thanks
The copper was some 12 ga. Solid ground wire that Ryan hammered flat on the anvil side of vice. I cut it straight with dremel ( got hot chips in the cheek). We glued it on with super glue. It's kinda steam punk I think. And yes we need a trophy case. I was just thinking on how to build one just before I came on site and saw your post. Nice. Honest Abe was a homemade winner!
