the facelift has begun!

Bob's been nice enough to snap a few pics when I'm not down there during the process.

here's the Michelangelo of Tiki working on a piece by the Picasso of Tiki...




does that make this the Sistine Tiki?

anyhow, he's using a combination of light heat torching and burr bit in a grinder to pull off the bad paint.




hey, anytime something old has to be restored, it's traumatic and changes a bit from the original.

i'm just hoping in terms of plastic surgery jobs, i get more Cher and less Joan Rivers....hell, anything's better than Mickey Rourke! (i think Palmer had less plaster filler in him than all three of them)
