Daniel, Glad to see and hear it up and running. How did come out on the Ele. Start issue, did you find a starter yet?

I bought one off ebay, and square like original. Got this one to my door for $26, and it works like new. I could have bought a new China model for $45 + shipping, but I wanted an OE starter, and this one was cheaper too.
I had to use my air tool to remove a little more block where the starter bolts up to get a complete gear mesh of the starter, and all works perfectly!

Glad you could make the starter fit. Looks like it's always been there. I keep an eye out for one of those 'Work-Mates', but haven't come across one yet.

They're not bad at new prices considering how long they last. Here's a brand new one on ebay that's almost 1/2 price considering it's free shipping: Work Mate

Thanks, Daniel. But I've spent enough for right now. But I got myself a nice present for Christmas with the FF.

Stole a little time to work at the V4-7 project today, that is in between everyone & their cousin calling or coming by. I have the engine assembly ready for paint, taped off & all. Front axle is blasted & ready to prime. Not sure if I'll go ahead & paint the engine, frame, and front axle next, or go through the transaxle first so I'll have a rolling chassis painted at one time. I'm leaning to painting what I have ready, as the transaxle may take some time to finish. I know it needs bearings & seals at the very least. No pics today.

I put some more parts in the E-tank today....one fender, the rear hitch plate, & both footrests. Gonna turn cold Monday night, so getting as many parts stripped before then as I can. I'll pull these tomorrow, then put more parts in. Front axle beam is under primer. One day next week I'll be shooting paint on what is ready. I also did a lot of shop cleaning today so I'll have plenty of room for painting.

I missed this thread some how! I just got done reading it all. That V4-6 is coming out awesome!

Your probably one of the busiest guys I know, amazing you find the time to work on anything let alone time to do a full restore like this one!

But I just want to say Great Job Daniel! You truly are an inspiration to many of us :thumbs:

Pulled the parts from the E-tank & gave them a wire brushing. The other fender is in the tank now. The rear frame/hitch plates are under primer. Got more shop cleaning done too, in preparation of paint work. I need space & clean before paint starts to fly. Pics later today. Right now I have to go play Santa.

Here's what I got done today. Parts out of the E-tank, scrubbed, dried, blasted, then primed.

Both fenders have been blasted also, but only one has scratch filler applied to fill the tiny pits. The other fender waits in the blast cabinet for the putty treatment.

TONS more to do, but making headway!

Coming along 1 step at a time.
Question you have almost the same blast cabinet I have.
What kind of light do you have in it, one that's made for it or a homemade one?
Mine has no light and needs one, just trying to find out what the best way to go is.

Great Daniel, you're moving right along.
Yep, you've got cold air coming your way. A present from us up here.

I was hoping to see pics of you as Santa.
