PAINT & TRIM PHASE
Completed date: August 31st 2002

Return to Main Menu

All factory decals and body stripes have been replaced by 3 coats of meticulous multi-step airbrushing. Red striping that raps around entire body, has fine gold flake with pearl. Grey stripes match lower body color exactly. This is all paint, No Tape Decals !
Do you believe (if you can still find them) that the tape kit and logos go for $350 and up.

See the past 14 years of some of the trophies that our car has won

thanks to my wife

who was influential and patient in my restoring of this car.

Some of the Trophies won below are from the few times the car was actually judged. Not all awards displayed here.
Car has been seen in many non-judged events. We didn't do any judged shows in 2007 for absolutely no reason other then being to busy with family.
The car had been tucked away in the garage from 2010-2013. It was back out in late 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 for a few shows.
