My LGT 165 needed some new makeup applied and since I plan to pull the motor shortly, now is the time to start. First pic is relative of condition of existing paint, second after strip, and last new makeup applied.

The facelift will make the old girl happy, I hope.

Thanks, guys. Hope to prime the side panels today, then may have too much humidity to do anything else for a while. So far, nothing has had any primer under the paint, no wonder it rusted so bad.

Thanks for looking. Here's my feeble attempt to show how I want to do the seat pan. I do not like the all white and I think it will look much better this way.

Don't know where the pink tint came from, supposed to be white. LOL

Thanks for looking, Chuck. Just got the first coat of primer on the side panels. They will get two coats.

It won't be pink when I get done with it. That didn't show like that when I did it. Gotta go powder my nose. LOL

Got the grille panel primed today. Since Mother Nature decided we needed cooler weather, I will wait patiently for it to dry. Hope to sand and start the final coats on it tomorrow. Will post pics when weather allows.
