I do too Pablo. I guess it's the chassis builder in us.


Thanks for the support on the paint job. :)   I really had some problems. It was really cold so the paint wasn't spraying as nice as in the summer. I heated the rattle cans in hot water too. But I think my tendency to creep up to close to the body while spraying was putting the paint on thickly. :dash2:
