    By all means! You've built this car in a way that Bill and Sam would be proud of. Perfect, timeless, tasteful style Rob. It's a work of art and I've enjoyed watching it come together.

    Your car is my favorite shoebox.

    I can't even describe how hard you hit the nail on the head.
    Everything about the car is perfect, can't wait to see it in paint.
    I thought that flat maroon paint looked pretty damn good too!

    I hope I can see it in person someday, planning on any trips up to any NorCal car shows?

    The moment I've been waiting for looks like its getting closer. This is what results from taking your time. I hope to see this car in person someday Rob.

    Is there any way this can be moved to the customs section?
