Very nice looking conversions. What type of laser are you using to do this kind of work?

That is really cool.

I see you made a stand for these? are you planning on selling them?

is that a 66 el camino? I had one of those!
327 SS with a two speed power glide…. not that fast but it was loud! Ha!

These pictures remind me of when I use to hand draw cartoon style hot rods and motorcycles and submit them to magazines. A few were published and I sold a few at art shows my mom took me to when she had a show to sell her paintings. that was a long time ago.

I wish you well with your project! they look cool.

That’s beautiful work, Larry. That laser is really paying of.

Are you painting the masonite white before engraving. I’ve not seen any product here that is that color first except the product that is sometimes used in bathroom. It’s white and about 1/8” thick.

Very interesting. Can you also ” print” on wood with the laser? Or burn? Must be a lot of setup to get a nice prints you have done.
