Default Hats off to V King...check this out, Aztec

Got home today to find a package from Vinnie. WOW! I am totally blown away. Vinnie, you did an awesome job! I can't thank you enough for the hard work on this, I could not be happier! When I sent this to Vinnie it was a dark Sparkle and it had some extra holes drilled in it. The repair is flawless and the paint job is just awesome! Here are a couple of pics.

Holy Shit Vinnie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :

I agree that you need to stay with the day job until this pans out (earlier thread about going onto production) but seriously brother you gots the shit!!!

I cannot fucking believe that I get to witness this with my own eyes. TJ, those pics are fantastic, and you are one lucky bastidge ()


I NEVER thought I would regret the haloflash on my nightswan (and it's good and I can't regret it) but if I knew I could have had that I would have made your mortgage payment this month.

No, I like the haloflash plenty. It was a stretch to get it done that way and Mitch did a grat job.

But......



Jesus Vinnie!! The aztec is a rare and beautiful bird and you nailed it to the fuckin wall bro. I'm not kidding in my earlier post: I can't believe that 8 months after doing the flash I see that I could have had that??????? Are you fucking kidding me? Tom is a lucky dude to have made that hookup. The attention to detail and perfect execution just stuns me.

Stay in the truck for a while bro for the rent money but get this thing going. That particular axe is a milestone for you. The new wave haloflash that you do is an extention of that. I think you could make a (good) living in a spray booth

First: SICK job on the Aztec, Vin.

Second: Can I see a pic of one of your holo's, Vin? I didn't see it and everyone is giving you props. After seeing that Zebra you did a while back, I know you do kickass work and I'd like to see more of your stuff.
