    We will be staying in Wesley Chapel Saturday night. We have been in Bradenton since Wednesday. Rode out the storm at the hotel all day Thursday. Was going to Rare & Unique party tonight but got cancelled.
    We are headed to the Bulli show Saturday morning then possibly Bugjam in the afternoon. For sure Bugjam on Sunday.

    Thanks Pat!  I built it back in 2014 for the 50th anniversary of the Meyers Manx.  I did most of it myself,  but had some great friends n family help me getter done! Paint was done by my buddy Jeff Peterson, a master of ‘glass n paint!   House of Color Rootbeer candy metalflake, medium flakes – they are actually plastic now so makes them stay suspended in the clear better when shooting…

    Had a blast today….great weather….and had my free beer!…Tomorrow looks a little rainy as a front comes through….

    More sanding today…  I got the hood and all the 1/4’s done yesterday…  they blocked out perfect…  and I am working the poly down flat!

    2k coming up…  Poly is a filler primer. The 2k is a surfacer primer👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
