Fan-tastic!  I love how that aqua just glistens when you get finished with it.  I need to get on that 532 A/B now.

Or maybe you could be El Guapo!  We need an arch enemy.

Fin;
All joking aside you do wonderful work.

Thank you very much, D/P, it's a labor of love!  Right now I'm in the process of restoring an AE34 and a 302.  I can't wait to finish them and show you guys!

I use WD40 with lots of paper towels and Q-tips.

A 302?! This shall be our first battle Finlover... a battle of the 302s. Prepare to face El Guapo!  :o 8)


P.S. keep the other two amigos away from the 302, I cannot beat one of you let alone all of you  :)

Your Archenemy Eternally,

Hold on guys, we are in the birthing stages of a restorations category, so we can display our restoring skills, and get a hall of fame going like our auctions contest. The membership will vote, and we will have maybe 3 or 4 contests a year, and a yearly "Restoration for the Year", will be featured in our permanent hall of fame.
So hold onto to your gems, ( Not Jewels) for awhile. You can still submit them, but don't reveal too much to the competition.

Like I have a chance anyways with the way I run my mouth, nobody pulls for the guy in the black hat   :)

You have not seen the last of El Guapo!


Seriously, I would love to take part in such a contest D/P. Great idea.

Fin, Craig T(AKA El Guapo):

And no harmful or ozone layer depletion chemicals were used in the transformation (maybe that's why my elbow hurts)   ;)

That was an impressive feat. I will never count out a sun or smoke damaged phone again!

Fin:

I was dreaming about rotary phones last night.
You were in my dream.

And you looked like the girl in the picture. Of course, "El Guapo" was chasing after you.

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Yeah that last guy who played El Guapo was a real card. I am the All New El Guapo  8)

FIN STOP RIGHT THERE!! Nice try, but you are not smuggling my light gray 500 out in that hairdo of yours, give it back!

I see now that was a clever ploy by the amigos to take my silver bullet. Nice try gentleman!
