Now I see what Tammy means when she says you need to slow down.

The beginnings of the new plug? Looking forward to watching as you progress.

Could this be a step in making a mock-up of the new 5.0?

It could be a front-end (only single wheel well) of a mold for a mold but I thought the new one is supposed to be wider. Probably just a phoo-bah. Trimmed out, someone could make something useful out of it.

Hi: bvansnell... It looks to me like Reace never listened to "Nursery Rhymes". That's good news for us.

You gotta know Reace is sitting back snickering at all these comments. Hope he is having great fun at everyone's expense.

As he is marrying the old 5.0 to the 21 to get the final product, my bet is that this piece gets cut down the middle with 8"(?) spiced in, and somehow added to it the middle to get the additional 4"(?) of height. This plug with get bonded to the 21 plug, and after lots and lots and lots of finishing work getting the two components to look great together, the plug will be a nice smooth representative of the new 5.0 (5.1?). A mould can then be built from this plug. Just a wild ass guess, but the best I can come up with.

Well, it all started out with Reace and the crew settling in with a keg on a Friday night at the end of the day.....

Ohhhh my poor trailer. I'm going to need to ask advice. Do you think Capt Trolley's Creeping Crack cure will fix it?

Isn't there an intermediary stage when making a plug to make a mold when something looking like this is made, used to make the plug, or is part of the plug, then is disgarded after the mold is made? Maybe Rease is really trying to see if he can sell it before he has to toss it.

Yep, Jim nailed it...the front nose section for the new 5.0! A little cut and stretch here and there and we are off to the races....what could go wrong

Most of the crew didn't know what was going on either and one comment that was made was "Man is Reace gonna be upset about this one!" Hahaha....I gotta get my kicks somewhere!

Happy Friday the 13th

Reace
