Just finished grinding the stainless bolts & installing the right side lower edge hood trim.  Just need to find some clips at my local body shop for the hood center trim, then get my hood decals cut & installed.  Then it's ready "enough" for the Hog Reunion come plow day.  Tight as I'll be on time, I'll be lucky to just get them hauled out to Dad's.

As in most cases, pics make things look much better.  This paint did go down well, but it's not perfect.  My biggest issue on a farm is keeping the bugs out of the wet paint.

Doubtful she'll have a seat by reunion time, but she'll look good enough for me.

Just finished up the steering wheel.  It was way too oxidized to rub down to shiny plastic, so I got it smooth as I could using old bead blast media, water & lots of rubbing.  Once I dried it well, it got 2 coats of VHT vinyl/plastic dye, then as soon as it dried to the touch, a good coat of clear enamel.  Turned out good enough to suit me.  Before, it was a flat gray.

It really is looking good, Daniel.  Even if it looks half as good in person as it does in the pic's you did a good job.
