    The speedometer was hard to move, so I soak in thinner by a week!!! Then out some wd40 and work with the drill!!!

    RATA,
    How did you do the rivets? Looks nice!

    Your a period Rat that's for sure...;)

    Very critical in the details...a pleasure to see and experience from this end. Hey Rat is that aviation primer your using? I suspect your spilling aviation experience over the platform which actually happens a lot...Good stuff.​

  11. Sorry for the delay Stogy! That's a phosphatizing paint, an anticorrosive thin layer applied after sandblasted the frame, special because the humidity in my town is very high, this paint is a little transparent, excellent for metalshaping work...

    You have great Hotrod Spirit Rat...Glad things are coming together with your Vintage Inspiration. That green primer is totally WW11 era correct...

    Hey Question for you...Running Fenders?

    I'm thinking not, but if you are, I'll bet your thinking Cycle/Spare Ring...

    Let me know I'm just curious...
     
  25. Many thanks for that kinda words Stogy... Click in the link below for primer info!

    https://www.glasurit.com/uae/products/glasurit-283-150-voc-etch-primer-filler

    My plan it's running fenderless, maybe in the future can I get some fenders... I had some good fenders but I traded those for the banger.
