Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Hey Brent, your car is looking great! I can't wait to drive up your direction in my RCR to see your car. Hopefully we can get Tim Dutton to join in on the fun.

I have to tell you I never would have considered owning a car like that before you started building one. I really never new how good they looked until I seen the one at Fran's shop and the real one at the museum. Now one of those cars would be on my have to own list for sure. I sure hope I can talk you into a ride one of these days.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Brent,
Looks like the next step will be the OH-MY-GOD I never thought it would look this good in paint! There is nothing like that first look at the body the paint finished. Congradulations, one step closer......

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Choosing the paint color(s) is probably as difficult as commiting to the project in the first place. One of the more difficuly choices to make IMHO.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Kieth, I think you're right...One thing I'm noticing is that the closer it gets, the slower time seems to move. Man, I hate that!

molleur, that was my biggest problem for a while....Pat Buckley helped me make up my mind with his take on my dilemma....and I haven't looked back since.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Hey Larry...Should be color sanded and buffed and back in my garage by mid to late next week. Then no excuses for not getting it on the road for this summer....Don't know where I'm going to find the time, but I have the motivation. You'll have to drop in after your three month travelganza and help me out!
