    Why, absolutely Chuck! I might even make it down there. I would have to trailer it of course. But not because I'd want it to be a trailer Queen, it's because my back won't take the long haul.

    It Finally was a nice day to paint. 78 degrees and low humidity; just perfect!!!

    I blew it off with the air hose, scuffed up what little surface rust had accumulated while it 'sat' in my dining room , waiting to be primed. sprayed down the bare metal with DX320 wax and grease remover, then while it was still wet, I wiped that off with some clean white rags. gave it a once over with the air hose, choked my full size gun down to about 4" and shot it with DPLF epoxy primer. it took all of about 5 Oz to cover it using my Astro Pneumatic EVO4014.

    Fresh off the gun...
