John... This thing I stunning my friend. Wow What a beauty and she is gorgeous. That color combo between the True Blue Pearl and Alclad is just awesome. You are crushing this build. Gotta say one of my parts of this so far is the fuel tank. I love the weld decals, Alclad work and what tops it off is the fuel stain mark. So cool and Realistic. Keep up the great work!
