looks great Mongo I am glad to see all the hardwork pay off. Your car looks amazing.
I long for the peace that only driving a t/a can bring.

Is RELIABLE taking your fresh TA to the Nat's?  LOL!

Really!  I think the plan is to drive the whole way but have a truck and trailer on stand by if need be. Plan B is to trailer it to Lima and then drive it from there with the caravan.  I believe Hammer and crew are going to do the decals AT the Nats. I guess we will see when we get there.
So does that mean Hammer will be doing them as you go through tech inspec ;D
Looking good Fred :)

in the last pic are you giving a thumbs up? I cant really tell...    ;D   

I see the pads they are using, they are what I have.  and what compound did it take to get them out.

Im really glad they all came out..   I should of worked another day on it , but dont think it would of helped without the right pads.

They worked on it about 6 hours. The used the same stuff we did and 1 more plus a finishing glaze.  I will have to get the number from it though. Dude, without all you did, it would have taken 2 days. Dean said there are still a couple in there but I have only found one so far. The bird will cover it. He said they were really deep and he did want to sand too far.

Jeff,  you can sleep in it if you want, just no Taco bell the night before eh mate?

Not sure what Hammer has up his sleeve Mal. I guess we will see in a couple weeks.  When does your flight leave anyway?

Thank you Flyboy. The long part is almost over.
