Not a major change but the boys love it. It was sun faded so I just refreshed it with a few coats of paint. Not bad for a couple of hours of work.

The boys and their rides... I'm still blown away that my 2yr old is already driving his Jeep.

Nice refurb Ren

Whats up with the drop shadow effect on the "Gaucho" on the side?
How'd you do that?


Thanks,
Kev

Kev, I wish it was my doing but it isn't. It came like that. Underneath it is a sticker which I delicately removed so I can put it back on. I may be able to replicate it and if I do, I'll send you a copy. I'm just waiting for our thermal laminator to get fixed so I can make it.

I'll attach a close picture of it here so you can see what I mean.

ahhhh.. I know the sticker you are talking about.

One of the Gauchos we got had those black stickers on the seats !




Thanks,
