All in all it was a great turnaround and a good group of guys to work with, some new and some regular. Thanks to Mike once again for bringing in a very rare boat.
    Couldn't have said it better.

    The final results were amazing! Thanks again to Mike & John for the opportunity to work on this boat.

    Will this be powered by a vintage outboard or one more modern?

    The Electrician is here today and we're revamping all the electricals for the garage. In the future we'll be able to run more rotary buffers than ever before without any issues.

    Luscious. That's all I can say about the end result.

    I love that pic of Mike holding the buffer towards himself! That is a true master right there.
