Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

Darksider's Realm

A message board & forum for automotive builders, fabricators and customizers who think outside the box.

    OK, here she is...my '53 F-100 that will be eventually riding on a 86 f250 4WD chassis with a 6.9 diesel drive line. Figured I had better get my build thread up and going before Dad...aka Darkside Dave had a cow...lol. I also needed to start working on it before the wife made me get rid of it all...really she has been a good sport about it all

    I can't believe it, you finally started your build thread. I better look outside and see if the world is coming to an end.

    Figured the hood was as good of place as any. Thought I might want to get it farily straight before I took everything apart and had nothing to go by. I hope that customer doesnt miss the back panel off of their copier??...
