Makin my own General Lee Replica

Recommended Posts

Congratulations on getting the General road-worthy TomBo. I'm sure you are deservedly thrilled. You'd better get those turn signals and brake lights fixed....remember Rosco is around every corner. I'd hate to see him throw you in the slammer. After all, this is one of my favorite threads!!!! I don't think Rosco would give you internet access!!

Great pictures TomBo. It sure was nice to see current pics of Coy and Sheriff Little. I hope Big Ed didn't get mad and rip any fenders off your General. He still looks like he'd have no problem doing it. Your General is a thing of beauty!!! Well done!!!

As you can see I used Dynomat xtreme on the the roof also. Salesman assuers me that it'll stay where it was placed. I sure hope so lol. I also placed my "high" speakes under the headliner. They are small, real small & were put in w/2part epoxy (you can see the speaker wires runnin along the roof line in the one pic & the lil area where the Dynomat was cut away is where they went.

I told ya that car is going to be fun. The parade looked like a blast. Gotta love the cops wanting to in on the fun. Now they say they pulled over the General.

I LOVE the pics of the GL by the pond. The rays shining down on the car are too perfect. God was shining down on you that day.

How much more work do you have to complete? Are you going to store it for the winter?

I'm gone

I can't thank you enough for sharing your General with all of us TomBo. He's become a member of our Hazzardnet family. Those picts of him by the pond are SPECTACULAR!!!!

Roger,

Thank you buddy.

I almost feel like a book has been thought of written published & sold & now I got nuttin to write or share LOL.

The pond pictures. I went to a show in North Jersey when I saw Don Pedro & Byron & while on the way to the show in the morning I saw it out of the corner of my eye & was like MAN that would be a great photo opt.

Coming home I passed it & said NA I gotta go back & slowed down backed up & lost my buddy in the meantime in front of me. Snapped the shots & got lucky is all. Even the camera was borrowed LOL.

Oh & the pond is in front of a house up there just on the side of a guys driveway!
