She's a beauty, Fergie. Did you say that you painted it?

Yep, The most detailed job to date. I believe that's No. 3

If you'll notive the numbers along her running boards are raised etched brass. Hateful, real hateful! but worth it!



Wow! You have done an outstanding job. Wish I could see the detail better with my zoom, but I can still see it well enough to tell that you have been very meticulous.
