I picked up Pepe from the paint shop yesterday, just about 3 months after it went in.  I'm digging the new paint job, even if it looks a lot like the old one lol.  There are a few teaser pictures several posts below as attachments (thanks photobucket), or follow the link to the album that has all the pictures from the re-painting process.  He's a happy (and awesome looking) Kammback once again!

Because of the Photobucket issues, I'll attach some of the pictures here.  You can still click on the link to the folder in Reply #15 above to see all the photos.  Thanks for looking!
