He wants me to do more work on it. Touch up the paint next week, there'* a bunch of chips. He will drop it off and I do the work. Then I go pick him up. Means I get to drive it. He also wants a tune up. Been a long time sense I worked on a engine like that. It'* what I learned on in school.

THX for the info Dan. I have a Vette to do at NEBF.

Did you find the paint harder than the paint on our Bonnevilles?

Noticed no difference in paint. It had been repainted. It'* in rough shape, a lot of spider scratches. I didn't want to over do it for fear of taking off to much clear coat.

Got tired of all my detailing stuff sitting in a cardboard box. So I broke down and got me a nice carrying bag. This is much nicer.

I used to use the same bag at my last job to carry tools around it. It got beat up pretty good for quite a few years and was still in great condition.
