Making your Spouse Happy on your Anniversary = PRICELESS!!!
#1
The wife came back today from a TDY and this was the first time she's seeing the car painted and she had no idea i was doing this for our anniversary. she was quite happy to see the such different hood decal.

i told her i could tell people "its suppose to say ram air but i i lost one of the R's, so i made my own word up", hehe. i think it came out quite nice and better than i invisioned!

Of course the middle part of both "a's" & the "r" have to come out and the whole hood needs clear coating! should be picking her up this friday or so.

A shameless display of trying to ingratiate yourself to your wife! But, I'll bet it worked. Support and continued funding for the project is ensured. Very smooth indeed.

I've printed the post and taped it to the door of the fridge. So, along with a box of chocolates, some roses, and a nice card for VD day (as my wife calls it Tongue), I'm in a much better position to continue funding for the 'vert project and should be up and walking in no time. Big Grin

Olie, the car is turning out REAL nice. Your making me consider Honalulu blue and silver for a color combination. LOL
Great idea on the hood decals, at this point if I did that my wife would probably have a stroke. Not to say I'm inconsiderate, just forgetful. Big Grin

I was just trying to be humorous and complementary in the same post. Sorry if my humor is a little dry sometimes. The car looks great.

I didn't get offended, I took it as a compliment and it got the wife laughing too.
