    Blue is good for me (they did not take any tax/gov money either)... Funny what people want, but if they pay. We do what they want.

    We are on the 14th of 20 trailers, the guy goes from, don't spend to much to fix every little thing. People.

    Same problem here, never take pictures. But for me and mine, we can not get in the contest (I work there ). But still nice to see all the old projects down the road either way. Most of our projects are repair work or toys for us.

    Yeah, but any oil leaks will show up sooner.

    I had to paint a customers 455 pontiac in a crazy combo. The block was purple (think barney purple), the heads were black, and the intake and valve covers were yellow. Made me sick just looking at it. But the customer gets, what the customer wants

    You know, the customer is *not* always right. Sometimes they need a little help finding out what they need. Some of the stuff people come in asking me to make would make a persons eyes bleed. Usually they just need some help sorting out what it is they are actually going for. Usually its a case of just trying to do too much with one thing...
    Use *all* the colors! Have *all* the designs!

    Do you have a picture of your Barney/ la lakers engine?
