Hey Mikey,

Sure missed seeing you and that special MCSS of yours last Saturday at the last gathering.

We'll just have to figure out some time when we can meet up so I can see your MCSS in person....

Hey Mikey,

That sounds like a plan.

What time do you usually head up to Elgin for that show? If you come up in the afternoon, you could drive out to Plato Center ... and see all of my MCs, if you want.

Not sure if I'll be able to this Sunday or not ... hopefully they will continue doing that show for a while yet this year..... I really want to see that MCSS of yours in person!

That looks hella textured! I like it though...reminds me of some badass movie car or somthing. How'd the old stuff sand off? I'd imagine it'd be pretty resistant

Old stuff sanded very easy, I guess because I didn't add the rubber the 1st time.
Now i believe it would be next to impossible to sand because I added the rubber.

Eric, wheels are sold sorry $1200.

Kinda funny, the undercoated car looks good and has had more attention than the best builds on the site! Submit that thing to car craft, I'll bet it makes it in!!!!
