Also got to finish off Ad's fuch's, did a petrol tank for him a couple of weeks ago that came out real nice so now his wheels match!!!full unmasked shots to come!Imported Photos 00035

had a real hard core weekend working on Sams bus ready for the bottom half paint, for those that don;t know when we do a bus its prepped, straightened, primed, rub down and primed again which is all then rubbed down AGAIN ready for sealer and paint, so the whole process takes aaaagessss. but its what it takes to make a super straight all over TQR job, the pics we put of the bus the other day were HUUUGE so heres some down to size ones....
