Is that a Jack Russell / Chihuahua mix? Looks very similar to ours.

Oh, really cool paint job too!

Good luck on her!

Nice paint Bret. I see you are doing the paint as you go. Same here - so far just prime as you go. Yours looks so much better than my gray primer! I hope you had fun at the races - wish I was there
