Well, it's that time of year when we wind down our summer and fall activities ( chores ! ) and think about repairing/restoring our GT . I have completed my 72 and 124 Cubs and the 104 is next . I was fortunate in that I was able to gather some extra parts like frame and fenders . Some have already been powder coated and others will be going within the next couple of weeks . The engine is a good running engine and will only require all of the sheet metal, carb, starter to be removed then rebuilt or cleaned and repainted . The tank will need to be painted as it would fall apart during the curing process of the powder coat ( 350-400 degrees ) . It's sections are assembled with soft solder . The rear axle will be next . I have cover plates for the rear cover and the shifter opening . I'll get it sandblasted and then primer and paint it . Cub's paint ( 759-3258 ) matches the powder coat quite well . I'll try to get the manufacturer and color code for the powder coat from my shop that I do business with for any one who might be interested .
I already have some of the subassemblies done and sitting on the shelf . I like to work ahead and have parts waiting assembly . I hate to wait ! The Fenders are powder coated, as is the seat base . The starter/generator has been powder coated and reassembled with new bearings and brushes ( and tested ) .
I will be glad to answer any questions and provide guidance if any one needs help .
Enjoy, even though it doesn't look like much so far !
