Looks great Ken.

My question is, have you reached the " Golden Moment Of Turn-Around" ?

That is, have you gotten to the point when you finish taking things apart and begin to
put it back together ?

If ya'll promise not to laugh - I'll tell you how I've painted Rex and the reasons why. Promise? :D :D

Art et al, While I have a Campbell Hausfeld HVLP sprayer - I don't have the shop setup to use it. Believe it or not, I've done this whole job - one rattle can of IH 2150 Red at a time. Every nut, bolt, lock washer, spring, etc, has been individually sand blasted and painted by hand - one piece at a time.

I only have a single car shop to house everything for this job - tools, clean parts, blasting cabinet, tool box, benches - etc. It makes for quite a logistically planning process. I have made special wire hooks to hang all the parts for spraying outside and drying inside, a lazy susan painting stand and a bolt spray station.

Thanks all for following my post and asking your question.

Now stop laughing :D

Got this seated into position and held with temporary bolts last evening. I need to get replacement bolts - the originals had rusted quite badly and some of them twisted off during tear-down.

I have got to ask. How many cans of paint are needed to paint a Cub at this level? Thanks for sharing all the details and pictures. I have learned a lot from your posts about this project. The Cub looks wonderful.

It will be about 22-25 cans of IH 2150 Iron Guard Red and about 20 cans Primer. I'm keeping track, I'm publishing a spreadsheet when I am done for the all in parts and all.

Now that will be interesting. Are you going to have Rex at Cecil's or am I going to have to stop by for a private showing? :) :)
