Thanks George,
I have to say I am pretty happy with the paint and body,and especially the color. Seriously considering doing my personal pantera in this color scheme.

Hi Joe,
I got to know our code enforcement officer rather well this past year. The officer for our area is good guy and fair minded. My neighbors on either side of me are both car guys, one builds race cars the other a high end collector. My neighbor across the street is a real jerk.
I will be the first to admit that I have a few more cars than I should stored at my house. I keep them covered with car covers. Most are in the back yard with a large awning type cover that I built out of EMT (electrical conduit). The guy was calling code enforcement nearly every week on me, the officer had to respond. I just gave him my cell number, its easier. I built a fence so no un-registered cars can be seen and honestly I have one on the best looking houses on the street.
Finally I went over and talked to the guy across the street. I told him point blank, one more complaint and I will make it my mission to buy and register every rusted piece of crap I can get my hand on and park them in my front yard.
Then I would paint my house Pink and he can look at that all day long and not a dam thing he can do about it. I did agree not to paint anymore cars in my garage (painted 4 cars in my garage in the past 2 years, so not a big deal). 4008 was the first car I ever painted in a booth. Paint flowed much better, kind of liked not having to wet sand and buff for a week to get the dust out. I am still working on my cars in the garage, metal work, mechanical, prime and prep, just have to rent a booth to paint.
I am in negotiations to buy a 6,000 sq. ft. warehouse with a paint booth already installed. I will have to rent out most of the space to cover the note, but will have my own booth, maybe rent it out when I am not using it.
