If you don't already have a favorite product for the black plastic trim pieces I was going to suggest Turtle Wax Black Chrome which I use on my vehicles with the plastic trim right along the painted parts . I use that first to bring out the shine but it also protects the plastic from getting those ugly white stains from waxing the paint .Well it's NLA but they have something similar but I've haven't used it yet . Maybe some members here have and would comment on it ?

She is looking good. 

 

 

I think if I had that many flats I would be filling my tires with foam. Better than having 4  million plugs that might go bad.

I found the procedure to adjust the park brake to get rid of the whine when it is set. This was after trying to adjust the ball joint with no success. All other tests worked fine. Installed the plastic and seat. It is adjusted forward as far as it goes, I'll final adjust it when he gets here. Down to the last 4 new parts, Procrastinating on the next step.

For those that have put NEW (Not broke-in used) tires on 6" rims, you know what I went through this evening. Hogan Hero's and Beer now!

OK, The back tires were much easier, and they are seated on the rims. Trouble with the 6" rim tires. I got them on the rims, but can't get them to seat. Now before you start throwing suggestions, here is what I tried.
Valve stem removed.
Compressor to MAX 145 psi.
Dawn dish soap solution and paint brush applicator.
Cargo strap around tire.
No go
removed strap and tried rolling tire with weight applied.
No go
Added strap again and tried rolling
no go.

Letting the compressor cool down now

Nope, Plan C is to take them to a tire shop where the compressor may have more oomph.

Its flow more than psi.
Take the Curley cords off, put on your highest flow, shortest regular hose and use the air nozzle instead of chuck.
Nothing to lose.

Discount Tire was able to do one, but gave up on the other. Once at work I am within walking distance of the City tire shop. He slapped a couple handful's of tire grease on it and it popped right up on the rim.
