Why a shiney new coat of red base coat/clear coat of course! ::
Turn out really well, can't wait to get back up there and see it after having time to really set-up. On to the wet sanding and reassembly! :)

Damn straight! A "bright red" place! Sorry, Steve ;)
A paint session always seems to give me a second wind on this project...sanding and sanding and sanding can really suck the life right outta ya. I can't wait to bolt up some clean new parts! ::

Brian would get very upset if I didn't give him a hard time. It was his birthday present, after all. It looks great, even if it's wrong WRONG WRONG! ::

I actually look forward to Steve's anti- red rhetoric...it's a simmering, jealousy induced rage that I've come to enjoy. ;)

If you can keep up that delusion for another 50 years or so, you'll die a happy man!

Yeah...but, I'll likely out-live you...so I'll just be sure to explain your red-envy to everyone at your funeral! ;) ::

Here lies Steve Adelson, or as his friends knew him..."Jimmy".
A loving husband and father..."Jimmy" finally lost his life-long battle with red-envy. Even though the last few years of Steve's life were spent curled up in the corner of a dark room muttering "must be original color...must be original color", we prefer to remember him as he was before the breakdown, a witty young poster on the VMF...hell-bent on shunning red-repainters everywhere. We'll miss ya Jimmy...where ever you are. *Sniff* ;) ::

Sounds great! Until then, the only thing I'll paint red is the town.
