Title: Bears gp
Post by: bear on March 02, 2020, 11:40:25 PM
Well after 18 months in a baja my passion for another buggy was to strong so the baja went to a new home and my new gp is home just getting the garage ready before I start but this time more focused.

Iím excited for you Bear but like Snoopy youíre having to put some decent Ďfoundationsí in.

But you get full marks straight away for having some art on your garage walls !

Well try periodically rotating your art store via your garage walls and Kath might occasionally see some merit in the odd item.

Art enhances your living environment and itís so impressive you have included your working garage walls.

It's called 'personality' and I quite like the dusty/rusty orange tone, or are you going for a fancy metal flake ?

👍🏻 A non perfect body is fine there is less worry about potential damage so care free fun.

Spot on mate, that's the attitude. After all you built it for you no-one else and it's a buggy so you'll still get noticed and all the right responses

Looking spot on - as if it's just come off the factory production line.
