The first couple of rounds of painting were "fun", and a learning experience. The middle rounds were production and getting into the process. The last round I had had enough!

And finally, a mostly completed project. Made a special hitch to pull this with the mule. Just got the polished/plated brass back. Waiting for the hand painted lettering guy to do his thing. I look back and realize how fortunate I am to have the facilities and knowledge to do a project like this, and I am thankful for that.

Very nice! If only people had a clue as to the work that goes in to projects like these. But there are a lot of us that do know and really appreciate the efforts when we see them. Congrats on a great job....GB
