Please (for the children) feel free to pour yourself a cold one before your proceed.. If not.. Well… You’ve been warned.. Hey Team, It just me again with another one of my (How to) threads..

Of course I’ll be doing my way thou (ie) in a P-40 WWII motif, complete with pin-up girl, bullets holes, grease marks, riveted panels and of course the ever popular Shark teeth.. Ahhh sometimes it’s good to be me. Step 1. = Project Foundation: The first step in any project is of course KNOWING where your going ie (Have a plan!)..I simply cannot stress that enough people. Without a plan the project will fail. If you need to Please (Write out the steps) first if you have too to get a clear path on which to follow. You do not want to get to the middle of the project and forget where you want to go with it. It’s extremely frustrating and of course time consuming! Me.. I’m golden, I already know what I want to do.. I’m refinishing this gautier in a WWII theme (rite up my ally) so I’m going to wing it as I go, but to the untrained eye I might actually appear as really knowing what I’m doing..
