This is just way too cool and I get the feeling that you are enjoying it far to much

I love how the artwork on the valve covers and intake has the handmade look to it. Very unique

Just F'ing WOW!! Killer stuff BoneHead!!

You are going to have to do a write up about how you draw and write with a MIG welder. I've tried it a few times and it definitely isn't as easy as you make it look.

Thanx for the inspiration,
Jaysin

Thanks Jaysin, I have a hard time telling people how to do that kind of work. Not because I don't want to, but it is hard to explain. I can however offer pointers. Practice on a scrap chunk, a few times before you start in, the wire speed, and movement speed need to be similar enough to lay a small bead with no skips. The nozzle is pretty much straight up, so you can change direction.
Having an art background helps on the drawing part. If you can't draw with a pencil, you can't draw with a welder.

Holy crap! You are an artist with that welder! The intake stacks and plenum work is awesome. I am looking forward to more pics for sure. Thanks for sharing your project on OFN.
