That's amazing, Mark! Does the paint on the body look as good in person as it does in the pictures?

Mark, I took a "stroll" thru your work from 2015 to now. Actually looked the first time after we got off the phone the other day. It is very impressive. Beautiful, professional work. I have to wonder where on earth you find the time! Keep on P'up'in, you're doing great.

Chuck,

Yes...The paint work looks great on the body. I do have pictures on the phone, but I have not had a chance to get them transferred over to the computer and get them posted here. Soon.

Thank you Chris. Yes time is the biggest issue for sure. Just ask Chuck about that! It has already been a long haul and I'm not done yet. :roll:
