    Now for that first one - a V-shaped pickup seems super intriguing...are you watching, T.V. Jones?

    Looks awesome. Has a 50's Atomic retro look to it.

    I wish it was a pickup! But alas, it’s just a car emblem :)

    The chrome just wasn’t sitting right with me.

    I was thinking of adding circular racing numbers on either side (77 and 50), but my wife suggested racing stripes...

    So out came the paint and painter’s tape.

    I’ll unveil it after the final coat of paint dries...

    Texted a pic to the wife. She was blown away. She also thought mirroring what I did on the left side would look cool on the right side.

    So the paint, brush, and tape is out.

    I hope it looks cool... pics to follow...

    I wasn't in love with the chrome lettering until you added the racing stripes. Just what it needed.

    Me too.

    I’m thinking my wife just saved this amp’s looks!

    I’m on the last coat of paint... should have a photo soon...
