I ended up buying this from Jaz.. He was a great guy to deal with and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
The piece arrived today .. the art is perfect and exactly what I hoped for. Given supply vs demand I think i paid a fair price.
As expected - it looks like it was clearcoated with a pressure can. Its now on its way to our resident clearcoat expert to be refinished.
Thanks Jaz .. you did good.
