Sunday I took the singular weather window for painting and laid down 2K rattle can clear coat on the shelter sides, side covers, and front fender that I had resprayed the lacquer on a couple months ago. I was not very happy with it as immediate results were a milky mess with runs, dust nits, and a gnat right in the middle of a shelter side. But I was encouraged by folks on the DTT forum that a) the milkiness would go away as it cured and b) I would be able to wet sand and buff the nits, gnats, and runs out. Today the sandpaper came out soaking on a tub of water with a couple drops of Dawn. 1200 grit, then 3000 and finally 7000 on the runs. 3000 and then 7000 on the nits and gnat. Buffed with 3M polishing and finnesse compounds. Looks pretty good. Tomorrow I'll move the Hunley back in from the family room and mount up the carbs and tins. She'll go back to the family room for the winter, then.

This past weekend I shook off the winter blues by putting the Hunley in the Knoxville Cabin Fever show. She won 1st place in Hondas (but, there were only three there). Had a great time and I'm happy with how she turned out after the repaint.

Afraid that will have to wait for weather to cooperate. It will happen, though!

Whoa! I didn't even see this until today (I was away the weekend at a cousin's funeral.) Thanks so much! I'm floored. And pumped. On the 16th, the church is having an art show and spaghetti dinner to raise funds for the youth. I'm thinking about taking the Hunley as my art exhibit.

But really, I'm so much more pumped by the company of other BOMs that I've seen. I had the honor this past August to be in the same booth with JR's awesome supercharged '75 (BOM January '18). I even got to ride the Hunley into the WingDing exhibit hall in front of him and enjoy the whir of the rotors.
