Hopefully fall Arrowhead Ray. No way I will have time to be ready for spring. Thanks for all the kind comments.

That’s too nice to use, I would be scared to put it in the water.
Hey John,, are you going to bring this to Arrowhead?

Getting close now. That's a very nice color, I like it. @ $550 bucks there's not much room for error. Looks awesome John, nice work.

Finally got the Jetstreak to my buddy's body shop last week. Scotty (in the one photo) is a master. In addition to his full time one man body shop, also raises cattle on his NC mountain farm. I love the man. The blue/teal is PPG Caribbean Aqua. It's a 2019 Mini Cooper color. It looks more blue in the photos than it really is. I am NOT trying to match anodozied blue. Its just a color my wife and I really like. It is too expensive for me to screw up so I took it to Scotty. $550 for the base and clear (materials only). The interior gets a grey Zolotone finish (kind of like a trunk paint) when I get around to it.

Looking nice John. You're getting good at this. ;) Figure out how long the glo-pole needs to be for this one. I should have everything else ready this week.
