Is that a Gas can and a quart of Oil I see?

So when do we see Fire coming out of those pretty pipes?

What material did you use for the tubes and how did you shape them?

The pipes are stainless steel. They were bent in a home made bender made by my pal Ron.

Nice work Steve - I reckon Boyd Coddington would have been proud to see pipes like that.

Yesterday I made the second half of the boot mold. After being sent home from work because of a small fire and power failure in the refinery, I made the core pins and made a test run.




I could have mixed the material better. The color is not good. I think I pressed a little harder than I should have also. The result was great. I have made 5 boots now and they look better. I tried to color one with black pigment but after 1/2 hour in the mold it was still soft. Grey will look just fine.





They look a little big but so do the plugs so it is something i will learn to accept. I don't think I want to go any smaller.
