Dang that looks awesome!!! nice work. :hide:

one tip I have learned...(this may or maynot affect what your doing,but i will say it anyway) but I leave the clutch and footrest on the frame when painting...The paint is usally too thick to slide the the pedals on and I mess up the paint on the frame and pedals trying to put them on....same problem with steering shaft also....anyway I dont think you need any tips from me....that thing is looking awesome...keep up the good work,, hope i get to see it one day :scratchead:

Lookin' better everyday, Brian. :hide: Hope the clutch pedal and footrests go on easy for you. I paint them on the frame anymore because I learned from my first tractor restoration, you end up with a paint build-up and they don't slide on without scratchin' the frame. Good Luck. :scratchead: You probably have that figured out already. Again, it looks great. :ychain:

I masked all the holes in the parts before I painted them also tried too

keep the paint thin on the bar. Put a light coat of grease on all mating surface's

during assembly worked good no problemo :scratchead:

That is some awesome work you have done there. I can't imagine the man hours you have into just creating the stainless steel replacement parts. I am stealing the rubber pad on the brake band idea off of you :scratchead: . I have'nt given that much thought until I saw that done on yours. Simple and effective. I like it. Keep up the good work :hide:

New wiring and key switch

I have removed the yellow crimp insulated wire terminals and changed to noninsulated terminals and black heat shrink tubing w/epoxy lining.

Now they look like the battery cables in the picture's

just cleaned it with formula 50 made by zep

thank goodness we have a 2 ton arber press at the shop I was even able

to bring the center hole for the cap back round again :scratchead:

Thanks for the tip, was trying to figure out how to fix that center cap opening on the 2 here I need to re-work. Last one I did for the Charger was fine in the center but needed a lot of sanding/polishing on the rim. Once it was smooth that one got 3 coats of Eastwood's Diamond clear.
