So, I've been riding my motorcycle(s). Panel truck progress slowed to a stop for a while.

Flat black paint on the inner fenders - they came out great.




In our last episode we were fixing the d/s front fender up a bit, needs more work.








Fixing up the tail of the front fender with a homemade patch.

How does it look on the truck?????



the scenery was easy on the eyes yesterday........



Next up, the hood, as it only has a tiny bit of rust, and the other fender has lots, so we're taking easy street today.



the rust



the whizzerwheel action - you can see the brace underneath has some rust too. brace + hood skin = water trap!



the patch -



grind it down.........



more d/a sander action, god I loathe this thing, but I'm almost done with it on this project.



I slid the emblem + background in there just to see what it looks like, emblem is going to be red, on a gray background.



primer is next up today!!!

I've been making trips to VT every couple of weeks. My goal is to make your garage a stop in VT Tag-O-Rama!

I've been tempted to do that myself, and then put up a new sign that says

"No Photography On Premises"




I'm on VT Rte 14 in Royalton, if you happen to be passing by sometime, stop in if I'm there.

Awesome I can take a picture of the sign!
