oh by the way guys how is the website coming?

It's coming along pretty well. We are hoping to launch in December but there is still much content to produce before then. It's not easy to produce content for the web and keep up with your projects at the same time!

The good news is that we have a forum almost complete and I have a feeling that we will be launching that before the web site goes live.

Like would I be ale to spray paint it red and black?
If not anyway of getting those colors if they even make it in colors?

I answered a question similar to this on WizD the other day.

My bet is that the paint will crumble off :(

We're keeping busy. Stu wears many hats :thumb

Heres a peek to what our evenings have been like when we're not modding :D

Nice video mate :) Destroying stuff really does take out stress very well! I would imagine the electric sheerer would easily cut through flesh and bone Oo'' Im scared of electric tools that go fast. One of the reasons I hate ripsaws :(

checked out your worklog a few days ago. Nice work, the concept is great the execution is very clean. Thanks for checking out the forums.

BTW: You posted a question about the paint job on the High Roller on the MySpace site, it's actually Powder Coat and not paint. I do some painting with rattle cans but most of my work is powder. In the future I will be doing an in-depth look at the kikboxes powder coating process. We are launching the new site very soon and will be featuring a piece on an ih-home powder coating system.

I believe it took Stu around 4 hours. I've been applying the body filler and it's taken twice as long.

Hey Gang, just an update of how the workshop has shaped up since we moved in last October. We're keeping busy too. We just finished the Ghost Rider Media PC and planning on next projects.

Kikbox Stu was just interviewed by Maximum PC's Mod Blog

Panoramic shots of the Workshop by Owlbot (thomhawk.com)

Chillin while watching DogTown & Z-BOYS (PimpRig Tribute on workbench)

I love this shot!

Our GhostRider Media PC is finished and We love it. Esp Media Center. We can watch DVDs and play our tunes by a hand held remote control :thumb:
