                          I think all the graphics and artwork are done... Its now getting stage one clear... Then sanded and then stage 2 clear and then buff and I get to take it home.... Best estimate is pick it up June 16th... Just a guess?????

                              Got a call from Chris Cruz today and if nothing goes wrong this week the body will be ready to come home later this week..... Stage 2 of clear is on the body, doors, fenders front and rear bumpers... Bob, is starting the buffing on the body today and will have it ready by Friday.... We are going to leave the fenders, doors and bumpers off until we get the mechnical instulation done.... This way no scratches or dings...... So hopefully next pictures are of it returning home later this week.......
