    I went to Torque Fest in the morning and was home by 1pm. Saw some great 49-54 Chevys, makes me kinda want one again. Not much progress on the '32. It goes to the painters next week.

    It was a Giant FN MESS, not all over the floor mess, just a whore to spray because when you pull the trigger, shit comes out. so if you want to try to adjust the pressure for different textures, you gotta keep moving at the same time. I forgot in one spot and dripped all over the place, disaster!
    Other than that, I like it. I wish I would have bought two kits, 1 didn't cover the whole thing as thick as i'd liked it to.
