Thumbs up Ready to learn more stuff!

I would never have been able to complete the inside of my GT, if it weren't for the last 2 of these rallies I attended. The first one in a small tent. The wealth of information and hands-on workshops gave me the confidence to tackle projects I never would have tried, before! Can't wait, as I now need to work on the exterior. I will be there & Zollie, too!

Please, somebody, for those of us who can't make it this year, get some video footage and post it. Especially get some footage of Kip in action with the roller. This is a really cool tool but I don't think I'm using it to its fullest capacity.

Safari Rick - Yes we have space - this is a rally that we fit in pretty much everyone who wants to attend - we keep class sizes small, so the presenters just have to work harder the more attendees we have LOL!

Star Man - we have talked about streaming this all over, but have not found someone to help us with that technology + we are a little sensative to this because we have professional presenters who are compensated to do what they do - we have talked about taping and selling presentations, but then that adds a whole lot to what is already an incredible task putting this thing on....

So - grab a plane ticket, bring your tent and come on out!! We'll take good care of you!

Restoration Rally

Our shop is still busy with deadlines, but we're already working on the program for this most exciting event.
I might bring back the 58 Flying Cloud that everybody at the Rally has already worked on. It was the subject of our first Rallies skin replacement class. Now it has partial plumbing, flooring, a partial interior, and hopefully I can get her to a level of comfort that allows me to stay in her.
I any event, I look forward to seeing you all.

What are you doing to get ready

So what are y'all doing to get ready for the big Restoration Rally - besides finalizing the schedule, getting everything we need, logging in reservations, calling vendors/sponsers - I'm doing this - maybe I should have waited for the polishing demo..... oh well patience patience

Getting ready for the rally -

This is how far I got today - I kinda forgot how much work first pass is - I'm going to run out of polish - Perfect Polish has F7 on backorder - darn - puts a dent in the progress - I'll have to see if VTS has some

I know Levon (he teaches the polishing sesson at the rally) is going to give me a hard time over the swirl marks - he teaches how to do it first pass without swirl marks - but I had all the stuff to do it - so I'll just have to grind - do I dare say grind - them out with the cyclo
