Must be nice to work on stuff in conditions like that. Around here it would be rusting before you had the wire brush put away. If you sand blast something here you can watch the rust appear while you eat lunch.

Mike :D

Thanks for the explanation Mike. It just looked so neat that it appears that it was separated from the hood while stripping the paint so I thought that you or somebody else had figured out a way to make a clean break/separation of hood and tank. :shock:

Mike are you planning to have 563 done for the show in Glendale in Feberuary? My wife and I are planning to be in the Pheonix area the week of the 7 th. thru the 14th. My parents winter in the Pheonix area and they have been bugging us to fly down and spend some time with them. We are also planning on a trip to the Grand Canyon. Steve
