Looks great. Are you cleaning and painting as you complete a part?

Yup, I only have 1 spindle left to clean & I think all the cleaning will be done and the rest will be priming, preping and painting. I am getting burnt out on this Cub job after starting on it over a year ago. Sure learned a lot though so the next one should be easier unless I tackle a Pony next.

Makes me jealous seeing all these newly painted Cubs. Is that IH 2150 with hardener added to it? There's been a few posts on painting how-to's and I'm wondering how yours was done. Nice job.

Nope, No hardener or I-H 2150. I am using a very elaborate painting system. Maybe you have heard of it, It is called "Rattle-Can" painting. Y.D. taught me how. :twisted:

Rattle can is the only way to go :D

Looks fantastic!

Mine came out better than I anticipated, and as my brother used to say about my girlfriend - she's good from far, but far from good...
