Awesome work Kyle!

Really beautiful work there.

Something I've always wondered about: How difficult is the lead work around the headlights on those things? Seems like it would be a lot harder than the typical sail panel seam.

That is the most beautiful work. You can consider your self a true Artist in my opinion! It will be a masterpiece when painting is finished.

Up to your usual standard Kyle! Shame to paint it!

Have you removed the side panels to see what is under them?

It's not too bad. I try to get it paddled in as close to the correct shape as possible around the bottom of the front of the bucket because its a very awkward place to file. Other than that spot its mostly horizontal surface which is pretty easy (it makes it easier for me to not drop a bunch of lead on the floor :lol:)
