“Prove all things – hold fast that which is good” 1 Thessalonians Ch. 5 Vs. 21
I called my buddy Chad Carothers back in August with my idea to turn the Camaro, inside out. The good thing about a good friend is that you don’t have to go overboard explaining yourself. I wanted to reverse the previous black/white theme of the car, and put into art form everything that I “Hold Fast” too. Namely; God, Amber, Family, America, my pets…and maybe a little old skool nautical theme thrown in for good measure.
Chad got here last Thursday night…put in 12 hrs Friday, then worked straight through from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon…putting in 30+ hours with no sleep, while pushing his flight back in order to get everything done. I’m not going to put in a bunch of words here to take away from his masterpiece…but I will tell you that when we were standing there, completely exhausted and staring at the last little area of open space up near the front fender, he looked at me and said we’re out of time…and that he was out of ideas. I looked back at him and said, write the word JESUS on there as big as you can, and be done with it….since that was who I’d been praying to all night and morning that it would get finished in time and we’d make his next flight!!!
PS- Chad’s going to paint the hood scoop in Cali…I’ll get a pick of that up next time.
