Very skillful technique Peter.

I should have known from the quality of that excellent Ram Air Light you modified for me that you have talent. The scoop is painted to a perfect mirror black trim finish.

You should have that Bonne perfect......but it does take a lot of time to do it right.

Ok Peter, at the next NEBF you have to put on a clinic for us painter wannabees on how to paint on a budget and still get decent results.

The vids were very informative. Wish I had a paint booth big enough for a car. LOL.

Peter... Knowing the way we've seen you work in the past.. you will be bringing a new car to NEBF. Guess I'll have to keep mine away as it will be envious.

Go get it tiger!
