Yeah definitely! James and I shaped the front deco on Scrappy's old bumper, then mounted it. Then we recontoured the rocker deco to match the flares and got them mounted. We both just stood back and stared at it for awhile.

It was an emotional experience for both of us. The finishing touch on a project that I started in 1995, and James finished in 2005. I'm so thankful that she ended up in his hands, because he has really good instincts about all the little details. We both have a lot of the same opinions on what's "right".

Thank you James for seeing this project through! She'd still be in primer if she were still mine. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

thanks to you Tyson. It was a great and fun swap, both the cars and the 3.6. I always wanted a GT early 911. The car was not really "done" until the deco was on. That was the final touch which really tied everything together. Now we need to go run mid ohio.
