A Big Shout Out to Mike Everson!

I picked FFR6911 back in April 2009. After 2 years of trial & error and a lot of help from Mark Dougherty I was finally able to get legal in April 2011. There she sat for 5 years in gel coat as life got in the way and I wasn't entirely sure that my skills were up to the challenge to get the project finished. Fast forward, I ended up taking a job in South Korea but just before I flew out I dropped off a very ugly duckling with Mike Everson.

Long story short, Mike transformed the duckling into the car of my dreams. It's sweeter than I ever imagined. I can't thank Mike enough. A big shout out to a miracle worker.

Thanks Mike!
