    Luke,

    I was also there last Saturday, I am one of FOA's best customers, ask Harold, he will tell you how much I spend with them yearly, and I never denied their knowledge of Bo Pirkle's work, in fact they referred me to him when I had that bad experience with him years back, but I never denied his work wasn't one of the best, he is good indeed, but my point was that he is not "THE ONLY ONE" in Atlanta, take it or leave it, and I think this is enough on the subject, I could careless if anyone goes to him or Maaco's for that matter, I just know where to take my Ferraris for paint work......

    Sincerely, and have a happy holiday season,


    Stephane

    Bo painted the nose of my 355 and the bottom panels on my TR. I liked his work and I can understand FOA's answer. Clue me in ?

    I'm guessing, but he's probably referring to your "OTHER THAN BO" comment.

    I'm sure that there are others in the Atlanta area who can spray paint as good as Bo. But, what Bo has that others don't is several decades of working on Ferraris and the knowledge that has given him. In case you havn't noticed, Ferrari doesn't engineer their cars like other marques and there are tricks that can only be learned with experience. Do you really want someone to use your car as their learning test bed ? Bo is slow and will refuse to do a less than perfect quicky job, but isn't that what you want with your Ferrari ? We in the Atlanta area are lucky to have a world renown specialist such as Bo who will give you a concours job without the concours price.

    It's good to have someone that can paint and do little jobs like a wheel or a bumper and do a great job. I thought there was some real problem with FOA or Bo. I've met the guy only once or twice but I liked him. He seems to know his stuff to me.
