Nice work Steve. I'm still finding little hail dings and stuff. Raining like crazy here yesterday and today so not much accomplished. should be ready for color next weekend. I get Mondays off too so that helps (when it's not raining that is!) Hope mine comes out as shiny as yours Dude!

Ya...I sent you an email a few days ago. Maybe I made a mistake. I go back and look. I don't see anything that tells me it didn't send properly though.

I did try some color this weekend, just to see if I got what I wanted. All I painted was my mirrors and a test panel. the color is perfect if you're in the sunlight but in the flourescence of my garage..a little too much purple (suposed to be burgandy). I'm going to try a little red microflake in the first coat of clear to bring more red hue out. I have plenty of time to play around since it looks like more rain coming for the end of this week. I think I'm getting English weather here in Connecticut right now!

Looks great, even if it does have Camaro parts on it, lol! 8)

Very stealthy, I wonder if it will be invisible to radar?! :o

I think you may be on to something that way Prince Charles and Camilia can ride along with SEF and the crowd can't track them down and try to beat them up :o

Yes I have. I used to be a radio DJ for about 6 yrs  Late 70's duo that had some success with " I'd really like to see you tonight" number one on A/C I think, also had another called "Nights are forever with out you".  They had a few others but thats all I can think of off the top of my head. Bet you never thought you'd put up a group that someone actually heard of huh? :)
