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.

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

    Hey Man,
    I just made this thread a STICKY because it looks like a build thread to me and we like to keep them at the top of the categories.

    I'm impressed...

    Two things immediately come to mind here... While I'm not quite sure why you have decided to make this modification, I certainly see the risk and difficulty involved and I applaud your willingness to plunge into a task of this sort. The second thing is the fact that you have two builds going at the same time, the other being your '37 Ford which is also build thread here in the CARS category. I thought I was the only guy here crazy enough to be doing more than one project at the same time. Of course I have an excuse, I have S C A D S, (Senior Citizen Attention Deficit Syndrome), which basically mean's that I tend bounce from one thing to another. Unfortunately, I don't seem to possess the speed you have. Just about everyone here that has a thread going is faster than I am.
