    No wonder Jim Richards was cranky at '92 Bathurst.

    no doubt, we couldve done a better job *eventually* but mate, im so over panel work and it just had to be done. the biggest spot thats gonna bug me is the top of the passenger door. they undid some rough shaping i did (cos it was ROUGH as arseholes) but made the shape all wrong. meh too late now.

    im still fully committed to letting you go nuts with the crushed ice and lace. after a few weeks ill hit the boys up about hiring the booth, rub it back here the add a touch of lace in a booth. then we can also do a proper flow coat and really getting the colour to pop.

    just to steer away from hookers and the degenerate minds of JC users, ill chuck some pics up:

    had a serious "chip foose" session tonight. couple of the panel shop lads dropped in for a brew, dirby once again chipped in for a good session and hozy wozy and 'friend' turned up to take happy snaps. hopfully they got some nice shots.

    all up got a ****-tonne done. still need to finish off the windows, window trims, tighten up bars, wheel arch moldings, inside door trims, and take care of some overspray.

    once thats done ill need an hour or so to touch up the road tune to kill a pretty bad flatspot and she'll be good to roll.


    pretty fkn happy about it all.
