If you put it on, you can make it thru the crowds much easier. :smilewink:

I think that would be scary, Here is a you tube I made sense I had to move all the GT's out so I could lower the blower housing.

I have finished the sanding and painting on all the parts except items 39 and 66 which are still at the welders. I am letting the enamel harden while waiting on those parts. I did an inventory and I have all the parts except Item # 30, but I have a bar off the Jacobson edger that I should be able to make this bracket. The smell of drying paint and Nascar was the theme this weekend.

How long for enamel to harden in Texas on the first weekend of September?

Eight, ten hours?

I've been letting parts set over night. They didn't have the cheep $1.00 quick drying brand I usually use so I had to get the $3.00 Premium. Other than the long drying time, It seems to be a higher quality paint, and takes less coats to get a good shine.

Picked up the two parts from the welder last Tuesday. Been hand sanding and cleaning most of the week, the auger is a pain to sand but got it done. Working on the last couple coats of paint, and assembly will begin tomorrow.

We finished up the snow blower today. Bring-It-On!. Only issue is storage for just the Old Girl and her accessories now.

That looks great, Larry! Hopefully all it will see is tumbleweeds! If you get measurable snow, I'm hurting up here!

Thanks Kenny, hopefully it will only see "Shows" and not Texas "Snows".

That's a good price I was told they are worth $150 with the center piece.
