  4. Got some tail lights, switch horn, two brackets, there are coupe brackets, but I'll try to modify!!
    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!
     
  8. I bought them in a hardware store... were heated with a torch and hammered.

    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...
