    What a treat bro, we are Gene Winfield fans here in Omaha. My bros had the priviledge of working with him on a top chopping at the World o Wheels car show earlier this year. Gene is the coolest big time cat I have ever met. I am so pleased for you and love the wagon man. Tasty build all the way! ~sololobo~

    Ten pages and nobody has asked, what kind of material? Painting out in the shop I'm guessin' lacquer. VERY COOL.

    Absolutely amazing. A true legend, and another rolling piece of artwork. Keep the pictures coming, this is going to be a beautiful wagon!

    I've been keeping track on this post for awhile now. Every time I see it the more and more I like this ride. Love the color or colors that it has progressed through. The color has brought the car out even more. Tell Gene that his work keeps this Carolina Boy going and the style you have brought to your car is truly amazing! Keep up with the pictures!

    Thanks, Guys!!

    Color Sanding and buffing is Complete!!! Now I really can't believe all of the colors and depth of the paint job!! I got all of my stainless back from the polisher (OUCH!) and got the windshield in. Starting to look like a car again. When I get all the glass in & the sun comes back I'll push it outside for a better pic.

  27. I remember being at this point with our wagon..I am in awe of the color. HRP
     
  28. Just stunning. I am always in awe of Gene's fade jobs. I have a hard time drawing a straight line much less paint countless layers of faded paint all in straight lines. Unreal!
