It may not be car related, but I was commissioned to design a floor lamp AND IT TURNED OUT OK!!!!111!. I work in interior & furniture design, yet this was my first furniture piece commission so I was terrified it would come out the other end like a bent metal mess.
Thankfully It looks good , its robust and its finished nicely.
Also Here is a fleet photo for your troubles. Both babies washed and waxed last weekend.
