I'll stop at Grainger tomorrow. I am holding off installing the foot rests till I get the treads stuck on. Tonight I cleaned up the hood and Grill. I needed to bang it straight in a couple places. Not perfect but close enough that you would need to look close to tell. The PO must have banged in to something good. At least the plastic lenses survived as they are NLA.

Moving foreword slowly. Watching War of the Worlds, the new version this evening. I picked up the non skid treads from Granger and put them on and installed the foot rests. The new seat came in, and it bolted right up with no modifications. Wired the seat switch in while I was at it. Still working on sanding the grill, this thing is a pain with all the louvers and odd angles, but the grill is getting close to being done. Thinking of some creative masking in it. Stay tuned.

Moved them to a flat surface. The only way to remove the decal glue is to go all the way to metal.

Planning on a Shop camp out this evening, moved some tractors out of the way to make room. Movies for tonight will be Gremlins and Gremlins II. Almost done with painting, want to do a little detailing on the grille. Temp and Humidly got ridicules today, A/C's are keeping it comfortable, Sammy agrees.

You really need a spray gun with all the painting you do. ....I got a cheap one on sale for 24.00 and its a god sent ...no more sore achy finger half way through painting and applies much much better. Its also cheaper in the long run.

I've been told that I would be dangerous with a paint gun. We camp out occasionally to watch Movies on the big screen and surround sound.
