    I got to see this yesterday, I personally wish I could do as nice a job of spraying as Brad does. I would not even buff it if it was mine. It is slick slick slick. The work that Brad does continues to amaze me. We have had several meetings at his shop and have observed the progress on this car. Some may have totaled it and not fixed it as it was needing a lot of TLC. When he is done, it will look better than when it came off the show room floor. If the owner ever has it judged, he will probably get dinged for too shiney of paint as Lew did on his black 63 which Brad also painted. That is one ding that should make any owner happy
