    I've seen a write up on how someone did it. It looked expensive and way harder than I thought. But still badass!

    Been too sick to work on these things until today. I apparently need to switch the positive and negative on it, but other than that, she works.

    I finally finished the third one. Also found out how much they cost to make. Thinking about asking $150~$175 (that includes the lamp shade...which were way harder to find than originally expected).

    (First one on the right, then second is middle and third is on the left)

    Anyway, my next project will either be more of these buggers, or the V8 engine coffee table. I may have to just keep an eye out on craigslist for the engine though. The junkyards range from $99 to $300+ for a freaking short block. ($99 for just the block, nothing else)

    My brother had spare Civic seats that he put in the living room of his apartment since him and his roommates were poor college students. They were more comfortable than the futon sofa they had but since they were placed on the floor they wouldn't stay put. It would've been nice if they had a tube frame to bolt the seats to so that it would be sturdy, similar to something like this:

    Been a while but, I made a night stand out of a crank and flex plate that came out of an old 351 Cleveland. I've got the stripped down block sitting in the garage, just need to degrease it and decided just what I want to do with it.

    Cleaned and painted the flex plate. It even has a clear coat. (Just not in this picture)

    Cleaned and polished, waiting for the glass.

    I need to do something with all those wires now...

    This is a closer look at the lamp that's sitting on top of it. It's an old Accel distributor. Funny story, I broke the original distributor cap on it and had to order a new one. That alone was a $40 mistake. Fun times.
