Ugly is finally getting a make over

Postby Tezell » Tue Oct 22, 2013 5:52 pm

I have been working on my 75(Ugly)for a couple of weeks. I am finally getting around to painting her. I have rebuild the hydraulic pump and touch control unit. I Installed one of the Permatex electronic ignitions and converted it to a 1 wire alternator. I think I have everything adjusted and working properly now so it is time to paint.

I was shooting for finishing it up by Friday but decided yesterday that I was not going to make it. I had planned on taking it to Dothan Alabama to Heritage Day at Landmark Park this Saturday and ride in the parade.

BR and Roy called yesterday and convinced me that I was not going to finish it in time and I that I should go with them Friday to Dirty Red's and see the new twins. So that is the plan.

I will post more pictures in a few days.

How long did it take to get your cub to that stage of the makeover?

I would guess I have a couple of hours in tear down and 4 to 5 hours pressure washing,degreasing,scraping and stripping so maybe 5 to 7 hours. I still have some more scraping and then a lot of sanding to do yet.
The getting ready to paint part takes the most time. After I start priming and painting it goes by pretty quickly.

Hey Tim, I should have asked this in my post of "Federal Safety Yellow", but I forgot. What color are you going to use for the white parts on this cub?

Getting the red paint off was not as bad as I thought it would be. I guess the bright yellow that someone brushed on before the red maybe made it easier to remove. :lol:
Poor little Cub!

Mr. Mike, I am going to try to not let BR rub off on me! Thanks for the warning.

I am painting it yellow. I was not too fond of the federal yellow myself to begin with(I painted my first 71 red and white) but, it kinda grew on me. I painted a freind of mines 72 model last year and it turned out really well. I decided after that my next square nose project would be yellow.

No the wheel covers did not make it any faster. It sure snazed it up though! :lol:

This is the 72 model before and after pictures.

I hope Ugly turns out as well as Mr. Henry's did.
