Thanks Marty/guys, you have to remember this is my first rod and I thought that the tiger hair would be the strongest most durable thing I could use on the old 38. It's all on there now so I have a lot of sanding to do. I notice on shows like Boyd and Foose that they seem to cover the whole entire car with putty. Geese! Cruiz I've been working on this project for 4 years and have been excited about each thing new I've learned but even when I work in my wood working shop I hate the sanding part. I guess it's too boring and repeticious for me. How's the corvair coming? Thanks again for the lesson, Marty.
