    THAT is the reason I generally do everything myself... or it doesn't get done. When I do get it done, it generally takes me 5X longer than it would paying out the $$ and being disappointed/PO'ed about the work that was done..

    ... and there is 'this'.



    I lean toward 'this'

    When I call some of my younger buddies, they wonder why I leave a message I wonder why they don't hehehe

    I like your colors, I'm sure your going to be turning heads everywhere you go. Joel
    Anyways thanks again. You are Kool for saying so

    Hanging in my man-cave, I have the metal spray-out tin of the red color I chose. I love the way the two colors react together.
