I bought this lid back in October of 2019 from Rick Sawicki on this sight.
I hurried up and bead blasted it to get ready for painting and then I put the first 2 colors on it and took it to my artist friend to do the delicate parts.
There is no hurrying the artist girl, or you will never get your work done, so I just waited until she called and said it was done.
I picked it up about 2 weeks ago and thought I had better post the before and after pictures before I forget!
The first pic shows it after bead blasting--the second pic after I put the first 2 colors on--the third pic after the artist was done with the details!
I like the way it turned out, and it will make a nice addition to my Lubester Lid collection!
Anyone else have one they would like to sell?
I'm especially looking for another Bennett High Boy lid!

Great job Kevin! grinHah he has someone do it for him and she is talented. Kevin was kind enough to get my lid painted by her. This is the result.
