My point was that the paint job looks rough, pretty self explanatory. No need to get your panties in a knot. If he is happy with it........great

Didn't your momma teach you that if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all??? :lol: :lol:

On a serious note, your comment was pretty shitty. No need to bust someone's ball on here if you don't like their stuff.....

Bust someones ball? Are you implying he only has one? Wow, how uptight can people be? I could have used much more hurtful words other than rough. Give me a break :roll: Rough as in not smooth. Take it how you like. I never said it looked shitty, again - rough!
