    Please Graduate FFR MK4 7287 - Delivered on July 27, 2010 - 99 44/100 percent finish

    There will always be little things to do, but it was driven today with all the major components on and the paint, windshield doors, and seats intact. Its been 7 years 2 months and 1 day, but hey, who is counting. I want to thank my son Kevin for all his hard work, expecially the Awesome Paint Job.

    The Stripe will be added later !!

    Congrats! There's nothing wrong with taking your time and savoring the build. It looks good. I like your wiener dog too. LOL, we had one that looked just like that. He was a funny pooch.

    Thanks for all the Kudo's !

    re Yama Bro we have 2 weiner dogs, pepper and Daisy

    The color is a Ford color, Ruby Red, currently being used on Mustangs and F150, saw it on a neighbors Ford truck.
    its a tri coat, metallic base, bluish tint mid and clear coat, 12 coats in all not counting primer, pictures don't do it justice.

    Bob-

    Congratulations on getting her done. She is really a beautiful car. I love that paint job! Your son did a really special job, and I know you must be proud of him.

    I hope you get to enjoy the heck out of it!

    Regards,

    Steve

    Way to go Bob!

    Congratulations on getting her to this point. Any further plans, or is she "done done"? How many miles do you have on her so far?

    I didn't realize that you are only 13 or so serial numbers behind me. When did yours get delivered? Mine was July 24 2010.
