Back up on post #147, I said 'Done again?',,,,, here's the answer~





Sprocket came in Monday. Pic later.
Needs stub axles. He has misplaced the pair he was saving (the last 5 yrs). Then it's on to building a new rear body. With more bug fenders,, maybe. He changes his mind too much

And I am changing Dragon. 2014 I sanded the roof, was told 'don't do that, I'll being home some paint', so I waited......
I'm joining the spray bomb club. I have a pt job so I can afford to do some things now.

A couple months ago, just a zen thing~


120 grit to remove what's left of clear, took 10yrs for flaking this far, didn't want to wait another 10 for the rest to flake off,, then 180 to smooth it off.



Kyrlon black, rustoleum grey. Figuring it out as I go along.


Picked up some hammer finish and that will go around the art. Not sure yet if I'll keep the Dragon, either update it with some hand detail or remove and do new design or leave blank.


He's also had engine changes, out with the dual headaches and back to a single Progressive. Now if he'll just start nicely after 5mins when he's hot.....currently I dread stopping for gas.
More later~

Leaving the Dragon, for now. Clear on it is starting to flake too, took longer because it was dbl coated with art work.
May do a completely new design.
If the mood ever hits~ But at least He's presentable again. Well, from a distance. Better than all that flaky paint~



and after 13 yrs, finally highlighted design.

Not done yet~
