    A little project I've been working on....

    I built this as my entry in a mail box build off at the 2012 Northwest Motorfest in Boise, Idaho. All mail boxes will be auctioned off and all proceeds go to the 'SHRINERS HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN' charity. Peoples choice wins $250.
    Still need to install the mag and string plug wires. It fits on a stand based off a steel wheel. I'll post a pic of the finished product. Got about 90 hours in it so far.
    Here's the build; http://photobucket.com/hotrodmailbox

    Actually DD a thought just came to mind. Have you thought of maybe selling them to the public? With either one or two mailboxes like you have there?

    If you have I would love to buy one.

    Well, boys, with this kind of response, I better look into it, huh ? It'd be a pretty spendy piece ! Indoor display use only though.
    I might put the next one up on Ebay.....

    It is an onsite bidding process so if you want this one-of-a kind, 'original, you gotta be there in person. Besides, I committed this one to this cause.
