Hey Danny, haven't talked to you in awhile, did you get the 6.0 yet? Fiberglass?

I'll call you tomorrow.

Nah I'm down here but only for two more days, then I move back up North. How much is your paint? I've gotten quotes from $400.00 - $1100.00 just for the damn fenders, even when Gaaco will paint a whole care for $200.00. WTF? Haha, no clue.

When are you putting the spindles on?

That's a *****in' price.

Danny, when I'm down here over Christmas break I think I'll do that. You think it will still be the same price?
