    Hi Folks
    Here is a Louis Vuitton I just finished up for a customer.
    Painted trunks are the most challenging kind
    but with a few tricks and some magic it can be done.
    Thanks for looking

      Nice job Ben as always, like you said, challenging, most people don't understand how hard it is to get paint out of leather, wood or fabric and have it look good, but you did a fantastic job!, it looks great, greendog.

      Really nice bjb5859!! Great Job as usual !! Is it possible bjb5859 to be able to speak with you in person. I have a similar situation on a Goyard trunk I picked up a few weeks back and would like to send you a couple photos and get yours thoughts. Thanks!! Tom

      Thank you trunkman
      If the paint is old enough it comes off relatively easy
      with the right technique.
      But its still a ton of work.
