I would use the same crew again.
The guys and product from Spaceroof were excellent, John Pierce built a great motor, and Cortez Paint & Body in San Antonio kicked butt. I'll see you Vee Dub Nut ...

Doug,
It's great. First road trip to the beach in a bus in 16 years. I remember why I like these things so much. Can't wait to see yours.
