Oh dont get me wrong I know what your saying bout keeping it neat in appearance. I am just saying you can have a car that is painted with spray paint and still keep it neat. I hope I am explaining it right.

I can see that anything I say you are just going to degrade it anyways you want to. So I will just shut up since you think I am just an ignorant redneck that thinks I know everything when all you are oding is showing how ingorant you are.

Ok I cant keep quiet here.

First comment......
I wasnt degrading anybody. All I was saying was that you dont have to have a fancy paintjob to run down the track. If anybody took that as that I was degrading them then Im sorry. Also I dont have any problem sitting in a car that does not have a fancy paintjob and going down the track in it. Every body panel can be a diff color and I wouldnt care. I know how expensive paintjobs are these days due to the fact that I do paint and body. Not everybody can afford them.

Second comment.......
Nobody is perfect in anything they do. Everybody misspells stuff all the time. Just because I dont use spell check or I type faster than what I am thinking of how something is spelt doesnt mean I am a piece of S***.

Well I am usually laid back but when someone insults myself or my intelligence I stand up for myself. I dont back down when someone does that either.
