    One from the weekend with my shadow, student, and up-and-coming hotshot "Artem Rayskyy". Corrugated trailer hand lettered with an equal 3-part mix of 1-Shot Black Lettering Enamel, Rustoleum High Performance Black Enamel and Dana Bulletin Black. Double-coated. Honest days work with sweet pay. The trailer was old but newly painted. Soft horizontal corrugations every 4". In at 8 am and out by 5 pm.

    Yes. Doubles as a storage unit as well.

    Looks good. How many other jobs would be much more appropriate in paint rather than vinyl? If more were capable or would learn of course

    Looks great. Thankfully, you had a nice day and some sun to speed drying for applying the second coat. Nice rich black.

    That oughta hold 'em for a while.

    The job looks great of course. But I think that lift you were working on was the sweetest part.

    Nice job! That old school perspective like they used to do on the roadside '8 sheeters' is a winner every time!

    Nice work. When I read "corrugated" I thought it was that vintage wavy stuff that had no flat places. Work the tip of the brush and concentrate all day. Or if it was aluminum, you could use Spray-Lat mask, then cut and spray. Man that was a long time ago.
