06-24-2010 03:30 PM Tractor enamel and foam brush paint job.
Normally, I wouldn't think of painting anything with a brush, especially considering I just had to buy a new air compressor, but I refinished the boat yesterday, and seems inappropriate to spray the finish. Even rolled the bottom paint, Oliver Green enamel from Tractor Supply, with foam roller and tipped with a foam brush. You could shave in the finish, glass smooth, no bubbles, no brush marks. Maybe I'm onto something.

06-22-2010 05:54 AM Why is oil coming from there?
Drove the roadster to the Fathers Day show at Charlton Park on Sunday, and was treated to this sight yesterday morning when I went out to the shop. It'd be nice to drive it somewhere and NOT leave a trail of vital fluids, but, I made it home and didn't hurt the limited slip diff. It's all better now, thanks to new axle seals, so all's well that ends well. I'd planned on painting the Diamond T's frame, but this took up my time instead.

Oh well, there's no deadline.

06-08-2010 12:25 PM Diamond T probress and more...
Got the DT completely stripped yesterday, finally. I thought I'd have an hour or so of "touch up" to do, but that turned into about 6 more hours of work. My little compresser has it's work cut out for it using the blaster, but I try to coordinate letting it catch up, and reclaiming and sifting sand. It's hard work, but the result looks pretty good. Now, I have to get all the sand out of the door posts, body sills, and other little cracks and crevices before I can paint.

Update on the Fordillac: It runs cool! The new aluminum Mustang radiator was the ticket, the car NEVER gets over about 195, even idling in traffic in 90 degree weather. I'm very pleased. The "new" location of the rear radiator will prevent it from being a bump stop for the rear end, so I'm good to go.
