    I only have to work till noon tomorrow, If I get it sprayed tonight I can probably get going on it by then if I am super careful... First I gotta get it back tho..

    Worst case it doesn't get cleared and I have to pull it back apart to clear it... :wondering:

    Her mom just text'd me and said she's been working on it all day. :inlove:

    For some reason I thought the deadline was Sunday.. After checking and realizing I had an extra day I cleared up my schedule for Monday, so I should still have plenty of time..

    I am officially getting it back a noon tomorrow! :dance2:

    In the mean time its seat night! I can't find or am outa 1/8" staples. so I will get the skins glued on tomorrow while the clear dries...

    The rails were bent as all heck on the Stella, so I am doing the Viscount instead.. I have to find some thin foam to gloss over the Velo so the cracks don't show through.. KIMG1016.JPG KIMG1019.JPG

    Well,,,, so was I.. :21:

    But, I had seen her doodles and gave her free reign on what it would look like as long as she liked it, so I didn't really know what to expect.
    I think she did great for being only 16! I am happy as heck to support a budding artist. It's definitely unique! :grin:
