I've done them on a number of cars. When it's not your main line of work, life gets in the way. It's also easy for someone to jump on ya when it comes to these things too. I can't wait to see the paint job!

If you want it done well and fast, then you have to pay. Just ask Sam what his Starliner resto cost, or Bronc 71 what his Exciter resto cost. I love the results on both those builds, but you almost have to be crazy to spend what they did on them.

I don't know the agreement they have on this build, but I'm going to guess SCT has Coop doing the boat for a few reasons that have not changed since the start of the build. I'm sure they both wanted the build to go faster, but likely time was not the only or most important factor.

Lastly, why would you care so much about the time line?
