Picked up the white paint today.  If nothing prevents it, I'll shoot paint on the parts tomorrow!

Got the white paint laid down!  :dancingbanana:   Took quite a while to get the shop warm enough, but it's toasty in there now so the paint will set up real nice.  I'll keep lower heat on all night if the heater doesn't kick out.  Paint shop said give it 8hrs of 70F+ and I'd be good, so I'll turn the heat down a lot at 10pm.

  This has to be my first time painting during a blizzard!

Dagnabit...came to check on shop heater and paint. All is fine except I forgot to paint the grill screen! Mixed a dab of paint and shot 1 coat. One more will be plenty. Paint from earlier is dry enough to touch, but not enough to handle.

Hope you can find your way back to the house in the blizzard. It would be a shame to have to sleep in the shop.

YES!

The wind is whipping it's worst so far today, with snow still a comin down!  I gotta go to the shop later tonight to turn down the heat, and I hope I can find my way back.  Spreading bread crumbs won't work, as they'll be a mile away in about 10 seconds.  Usually when we get these big snows, we wake to find the snow.  Most of this hit in the daytime.  I just looked out the window and one drift up against our original milk parlor was 6' deep earlier.  It's at least 7 feet tall now!

Been working on Hogzilla's decals.  These are for the front end of the hood and the back of the seat pan.  Remember, the hood & seat pan are white.  What do you think?

Might need to string a rope between the shop and house.




Stickers look great.
