Wow! Just wow!

Can't believe that's a paint job. Stunning work. That gentleman has some serious skills.

Looking great! I haven't heard of that guy, but I've seen a lot of Monique Richter's work and they are both awesome!

I was thinking about your project last Monday. Glad to see some progress. That paint looks amazing!

They got some clear on it. Three more coats and some wet sanding to go. Then topside paint begins this week

the crew has been painting for a month and still more to go. The shed is loaded with dust and isn't ideal so there has been lots of re spraying. It feels like things could not be going slower. I'm at the boat today but she's wrapped up so tight for paint there isn't much to see.

Not exactly painting weather either, even inside a shed! You're getting close Jay, it doesn't seem like it but you are!
