The car's looking excellent mate...it's definitely come a long way since you picked it up.
Great to see you passing your talents along to the next generation, too

You've definitely put it to good use...like any tool, it's the hand holding it that makes the difference.. not the tool itself.

Colour? im not sure yet, im toying with the idea of a Candy, hopefully in the next few weeks i should have a base colour done, then ists descion time......... any thoughts mate? I do like to do things a little different.

Jeff that sounds like something i should write on a CV....... lol.    Anyone wanna employ an English sprayer?

What about emailing them to me? or do you have a 5 year old nearby?

If you like ill try and resize them ( well the kids will ) and ill send them back.
Im sure somewhere on here theres a thread about Photobucket.......
