Default Re: Slow going...

The pagsta is the same as the rebel... but that is a tall can of primer (kinda dwarfs the tank). I used aircraft remover to strip a ridiculous amount of paint, clearcoat and decals. The decals were so thick that I thought the flames were stamped into the metal (I'm glad that they weren't)! I'm guessing that preparing that tank will end up being the hardest part of the build. I ordered some billet mounting brackets from a dune buggy website to make the front mount is as clean looking as possible. Maybe im going a little overboard considering i have no experience with this? Just relying on my innate creativity and skill... hopefully it works...
