You're making good progress. painting th efront axel white really looks good and makes it stand out. Can't wait to see it done.

It wasn't easy but I managed to get the back tires washed today. They were a little big for my washtub but I made it work. I got more primer and got my rims most of the way done. I put the clutch peddle put in, also started to get the engine painted today.

I used a combination of oil eater and purple power and wiped it down with my hand. Had a lot of black dirt come off that wouldn't wash off with just water.

Oil eater is an industrial degreaser, I don't know were we got it from but it works good. Just don't hover over what ever you just sprayed, the fumes will get you.

I figured you could, I mixed the two because I didnt want to completely run out of one of them. Now I just need to clean up bolts, sand my seat and get new pins before I can put everything together.

I wasn't very productive yesterday and only got the seat sanded and stacked my tires in a corner. Tonight, I got the sear spring, hi/lo lever, and transmission mount bolted onto the back. I got the battery tray and gas tank bolted up, and going to start putting together a new wiring harness tomorrow. Making progress were I can wile it is too cold to finish painting.

Checking in with tonight's progress, got some major stuff done. I got the fenders and rear hitch plate bolted on, painted all of my bolts that were sanded and already holding stuff together. I got the transmission put under it, didn't get to bolt it on yet, having problems with getting the filler elbow through the frame.

I finally got the transmission bolted on today. Bolted the rear rims on to get them out of the way so I could work around the front with the wiring. I have a piece if a rusted bolt stuck on the one side of the voltage regulator. Hopefully tomorrow I will get to Napa to see if they can get me new idler pulleys. I also got a pic of how the engine is looking, got some of the sheet metal and brackets on.
