    Jeff, that's amazing! Looks great. I didn't poke round at that other site at all, but I would not be surprised if you got a call from Chip Foose or one of the other custom builders!

    About how much time do you think it would take to do my Freightliner like that? I should shoot my helmut up to you in the mean time...

    thanks guys... this project took two weeks full time to complete. i was on vacation.. damn back to work tomorrow...yes i did it outside with no real booth to speak of just the tent. its not bad if you pick when to shot carefully no wind right temps and time of day is most important. late day the bugs come looking for the paint.. clear for sure they love it like candy.... it took me about 13 hours for just that flames.. includes tailgate all four wheel wells and hood.

    for a start to finish job on a biger truck i would say two to four full days.. depending on how much prep i had to do.. removing parts, trim, mirrors, taping wet sanding ect clear coat and if i did the cut and buff that adds two more days. so saftly a full week then there is no rush. that would mean i would have to take another vacation :bluebounc

    :drinkup: That is one sweet ride!

    I have to admit, I did not like it at first, but the more detail I realize and seeing it completed really brought it all together. The flames look so realistic, awesome job!
