No job too big... no job too small. I'll do whatever Lesher and PSD need!

Crazy fact: 
When I was a senior in high school my football teammates and I hand-painted (with brushes and rollers) my 1972 Ford Galaxie 500 4-door hardtop our school colors of maroon and white with our school initials (NP) and mascot (Huguenot) emblazoned on the hood, doors, roof, and trunk. We had a great season!
