Further Description/Back Story I have always loved Woody's, after researching a few I decided to give it a try! Found a few inspiration photos, made a styrene template and started the build. I knew I wanted a surf hauler type build, so I followed that theme, I printed the board, made the roof racks and strapped it down.
