Bulky Dispatch

Managed to get the truck cruised around a bit before going back on jack stands. More heat-shielding needed around starter and air lines.

Mostly Mustered

Got the truck in the Motor Muster show at the Sweet Corn Fest … didn’t take my camera in the AM when dropping it off. Woke up from a nap at 2 to:

Pigment of My Application

Not to future self: Duplicolor Perfect Match isn’t … Dust and Sons mixed up some Shop Line Light Slate Poly 17 (PPG 3453) into aerosol cans and matches great. 3 cans and change to do the floor and rack followed up with 2 cans of clear. Masterseries primer lessons learned: Leaves brushmarks and crappy brushes leave bristles.
