    It’s Sealed & Ron will be sanding/painting after appropriate cure time!! Yahoo! You guys that liked the color..... He shows a gallon of paint so you could most likely order 20 of this color comfortably? Maybe comfortably! Not long now!

    Ron has the color on! The next step I believe is color sanding, then clear waiting a few weeks to cure more color sanding, a good buffing & assembly!!! My girl is shown with a few of her siblings in the last pic! They’re all looking very fine to me! Thanks Ron!
