Usually mounted on solid surfaces (like walls and the shelter door) with rubber cement. It does NOT want to let go. Gasoline works I think, but not to be used in my garage (or striping walls). Durn critters have tough hides, I'll give 'em that.
So far, the side covers are sanded and primed with etching primer as is the little plate over the shelter door hinge. Also the radiator scoops. Shelter sides had been primed with I think a sanding primer and painted with a thin layer of flat black. Makes it pretty easy to see all of the pock marks in them, which are very many. I've skimmed the worst one with Bondo glaze several times already and it works in small cracks and divots, but comes off from shallow depressions when I sand, so I'll try sanding primer. I found on the Hunley that I have to really let it cure before painting over it, and must seal it with etching primer first. Rolled Johnny 5 out again and fired it up - starter over-running clutch is still not engaging ~50% of the time, but when it does it works fine. Hopefully the MMO I added to the last oil change will do the trick. Luckily, the engine fired off pretty easy. I found that one of the idle mix adjust screws was not even started in its threads, so after screwing it in and back out to 2 turns along with setting all at 2 turns it really idles nice. Still have to balance the carbs, but I've never had problems doing that - might catch it tomorrow after tilling the garden for the wife and climbing on the roof to check antenna connections and aim. Front tire came today but I don't know if I want to go to a shop and get it mounted right now. At 67 and mild COPD, it may not be the best thing to do. Guess I could arrange to drop it off outside their door and pick it up later with payment by card or PayPal.
