Matt sent me this pretty beat up Fredericks j-spout after he bought 3 on ebay about 2 years ago that were found at a old abandoned Indiana Racetrack. This was obviously the worst of the 3 & one was actually pretty good if I remember right. I guess Matt figured I could fix this one. After 2 years finally got around to it. Sorry for the delay. Rough but Tough. LEON.

Loss some color after the acid dipping & the hole on front got bigger but displayable. I may fix/fill/patch the hole later & add another bottom when I have time. Thanks Matt. LEON.

See me do what, straighten cans? me in any promotional stuff might just scare people away, besides I don't like a lot of attention, I prefer to keep a low profile (Pun intended). LEON.

I was just kidding. I know putting you up on a stage with some half naked Monster Energy girls from NASCAR would probably be more attention than you would like. I guess we will just have to find somebody else for that job. :razz:
