    Mine was in paint jail for 2 1/2 years. That was for "paint" only. I took it there as a shell.....brought it home as a shell.

    Honestly.....I don't see that happening. You have a little over 2 months and one week to make that happen. :D

    once you see what others have done. You will try it. As for me taring things apart comes easy as putting it back together. It all takes time.

    Uh-oh....more car "porn" (a term someone in my house used) and eye candy! That certainly is a dazzling paint job. Once I hit my first goal of "a running car," then the second goal "a car that handles better," then if I still can.....a teardown for paint! But if I do that, I will have to keep it until I die.
