  • irk miller: Another option is to scotchbrite the chrome, so it'm more like aluminum.
    Dec 13, 2018, 12:14:28
  • advCo: I think it looks good either way. I like a little chrome. Fork stanchions help it blend in
    Dec 13, 2018, 12:25:46
  • Maritime: I know the glue and clamps willl be fine, I just need to make sure to alternate clamps above and below to keep it from wanting to arch.
    Dec 13, 2018, 13:11:42
  • Maritime: And the black looks ok and the chrome looks ok, but untill the bike is all back together and painted etc I reserve the right to give my opinion then LOL

  • advCo: Mornin fellers
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:09:49
  • Hurco550: mernin champ
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:14:02
  • advCo: Whats the word
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:16:03
  • Maritime: The bird
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:23:18
  • Maritime: Got the desk top glued, had one spot the router bit split on me, there was a flaw I didn't know was there but I will be able to fill it and make it work
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:24:06
  • Maritime: Pull the clamps tonight and do the finish sanding
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:24:35
  • Maritime: Trim and true the ends and hit it with a finish of some kind, don't think I
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:25:13
  • Maritime: 'll go with the epoxy, thats a bit overkill
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:25:29
  • advCo: Yeah, I never really like the high gloss look of epoxy
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:42:41
  • advCo: I like the wipe on semi-gloss or high gloss
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:43:04
  • advCo: Wipe on poly* I think i said that the other day
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:49:28
  • Maritime: That's what I think I am going to grab. couldn't find it local so I am hoping to find it tonight in Maine, got to go pick up parts and presents we ordered LOL
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:52:21
  • advCo: Nice! Minwax makes my favorite wipe on poly. 3-4 coats should be pretty good
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:54:58
  • Maritime: actually just did another search and found it, so can grab that tonight and should get the desk finished on the weekend.
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:55:06
  • advCo: Sweet
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:57:09
  • advCo: I just wipe it on lightly with a rag in small circular pattern. Hit it lightly between coats with 220
    Dec 14, 2018, 10:57:46
  • Hurco550: that desk is gonna be schweet mike
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:06:17
  • Maritime: Thanks, I have one issue, the odor level is high according to minwax. I may need to go with a low odor no VOC product because of Holly
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:15:07
  • Maritime: Varathane makes one if I can find it local
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:15:32
  • advCo: I never noticed a smell with it
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:20:13
  • advCo: The last can I got at home depot stuff stinks, not sure what brand.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:20:45
  • irk miller: See if you can Safecoat Polyureseal, Mike. Otherwise, you can always go with a high solids oil or wax.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:21:23
  • irk miller: *get
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:21:32
  • Maritime: Thanks, I'll look for that, there is a good little hardware store in Maine I can check out. They sell quality stuff.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:23:01
  • Maritime: likely to have a US brand I may not find here
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:23:18
  • irk miller: [link]
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:23:22
  • Maritime: thanks I was just about to Google it
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:24:08
  • advCo: Minwax Polycrylic is a good waterbased sealer with no odor
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:26:57
  • Maritime: Cool, that I think I can get. It is actually going to be above freezing tomorrow so I could heat the garage and do it there then bring it in after it dries
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:28:13
  • advCo: I got the last piece of the rear window channel tacked in last night. Hoping to get that wrapped up this weekend and then finish the dolly and get the bus bolted to it so I can finally move it around and tip it on its side to work on the bottom
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:30:02
  • Maritime: That is available local. the minwax site has an odor warning but if you say its low I should get away with it
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:30:04
  • Maritime: Nice Nick
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:30:23
  • advCo: I found a parts bus really cheap that I'm going to try and pick up after the new year. Its over by Birmingham so a 10 hour drive but it has a perfect nose and a bunch of other parts I need
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:31:35
  • advCo: Hopefully its still available when we get back from traveling
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:32:04
  • Maritime: Hope so.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:32:27
  • advCo: It will save me a lot in the long run. He's asking $350 for it. If i piece together the panels I need to fix the rust on the nose, and pull all the dents, that alone will cost me $350
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:36:33
  • advCo: Plus parts bus has the rear quarter that I need, extra set of doors that I'll likely use instead of mine, spare slider..etc.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:37:13
  • Maritime: Nice, good luck, hope you get it.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:38:31
  • Maritime: Exchange sucks for me today 37% so not likely to get anything cheaper over in ME for finishes but maybe.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:39:24
  • advCo: Damn. Maybe I should start buying Bus parts in Canada.
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:40:33
  • Hurco550: lol rusty canadian bus parts?
    Dec 14, 2018, 11:54:44
  • advCo: Hah, no there's a couple suppliers up there for stuff like window seals, etc.
    Dec 14, 2018, 12:00:23
  • Maritime: Ha, that's funny. I am heading over tonight and picking up stuff for Jim along with mine because it's cheaper even at 37%. But some stuff goes the other way
    Dec 14, 2018, 14:31:25
  • advCo: Yeah. I need about $800 worth of seals for the bus eventually. Would save me about $200 to do it that way
    Dec 14, 2018, 15:14:05
  • Hurco550: as of one minute ago, im officially on christmas break. woot woot
    Dec 14, 2018, 16:32:10
  • advCo: Nice! I got another week -__-
