Looking sweet Neil. Clint has to be the best spray painter in the area (big call, but i have not been the only one that has said it) Mine should be done and on the road in around the 2nd or 3rd week of January. We will have to go for a cruise together to break in the 2 new cars.

Looks so much better in the flesh. Clint has done an excellent job. It will be great to see it back on the road in March......2 old cars in the club being restored back on the road again in the next 2 months. :
