Re: Dumpster find

Update: had to get it powdered due to how bad the chrome was. Also added some parts I had lying around.

Re: Dumpster find

Wow!
Can't believe that people continue to throw these things out.
Don't they know by now there are people like us "collectors" still out there?
Great pick up, it's a shame the "survivor" look couldn't be saved, but you've done it justice! cool
Love the blue, it really pops in those finished pics. cool

Re: Dumpster find

In Robert Stack's Unsolved Mysteries voice: "The people that dumped it, thought they were getting away with murder, illegally unloading old trash by a dumpster. They did it in the middle of the night and drove off with their lights out."

I just picture people so happy to get rid of this stuff, not realizing the potential in it, sad.

All jokes aside, right place, right time, glad you spotted it, it came out beautiful!

Little did they know what they were tossing... suckers!!!!! lol

Re: Dumpster find

Yup keep them out of the sunlight cool


If you haven't seen the magical stars floating around whilst lying face down in the mud you ain't lived.

Re: Dumpster find

The stuff , "people" through out...makes me ill.
Idiots.
They never deserved it in the first place.
Good on ya.


Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
