Episode 34: Mickey Harris

February 6th, 2020

Mickey Harris!  In a long time coming, this episode is a conversation with the legendary airbrush artist, Mickey Harris.  We hear the hilarious story of his first time picking up an airbrush and how he was doing things quite a bit differently than others back then.  Also stories from some of the big vehicle projects he's been a part of over the years, along with how I came to know who he was almost 20 years ago with a SEMI truck at the Carlisle All Truck Nationals way back in 2003... and finally getting to hear how that semi truck, DragonMaster, came to be.  Here's a hint, he had over 2000 hours on it.
