    pidjones '72 T150V rescue

    Wish it had pearl in it, but it is just Duplicolor Competition White with some dark green and black to give the tone. SprayMax Glamor Clear coat. Depending on the weather, I might get some photos of it in the sun tomorrow. Couple more parts (90 degree adapters from the petcocks to fuel lines)...

    Yeah, not standard in so many ways. Not about to put the $$$ in Rayguns. Will just have to run with these pit bike cans.

    Finally a break in the weather! Put clear coat on the Triumph project tank, fenders, and side covers. Curing overnight and will wet sand a bit and polish over the next few days as the weather goes away (again).

    An Atlas Craftsman 6" Lathe Non Restoration

    That seems to be a good price, too. Too big for my little 7x10 HF.

    pidjones '72 T150V rescue

    I found out that the tank badges on this '72 T150V are mounted with 2BA domed head countersunk screws. My tank had lots of paint and rust in the threads. Close enough to a 10-32 that I re-tapped with a 10-32 tap and bought 10-32 flathead Allen socket screws for it. Not "proper", but they really...

    pidjones '72 T150V rescue

    Frenders and side covers are in my den on the second story of our house to keep them warm and the lacquer curing. The tank had a small place that I was not pleased with, so it was wet sanded and yesterday after church (and a very enjoyable lunch with our minister) it received a good coat of...

    Our church was down to about 24 average due to circumstances beyond our control (but fully in Gods plan!) Turns out another congregation with like doctrine really needed facilities for worship, so we merged. Last two Sundays, we averaged 135! In motorcycle related news, - I painted the tins for...

    Great to hear of progress! Was beginning to think you might need to buy a welder and take classes!

    Covers are now filled and sanded as well as the fenders speedo cable purchased and installed. Forecast for next week has several days over 50F (at least one over 60F) and no rain! Maybe I can finally get some lipstick on this pig!

    Left side cover finally came in from Glass From The Past a couple weeks ago. Then, the Epoxy came in to patch the pulled-through mounting holes on the right side-cover. Ground around and wiped well with acetone, then a layer of epoxy, layer of fiberglass cloth, layer of epoxy, layer of cloth...

    To remove hub studs before Powder...or not??

    I'd pass on the powder coat and just paint them with a good 2K.

    CB360's-from build to blog - 2013, MDS (Mo Dumb Shit)

    Roofers probably in high demand there. Hope someone is keeping an eye on material and workmanship quality. I have an old schoolmate living down there with tarps stillon his roof. At least they can still live in their house.

    Longshot but any CBR600RR fans out there?

    One of the sport bike forums or advrider forums might get more action.

    Glass From The Past

    Cover came in this week. Enlarged the mounting pin hols to 5/16" and it fit right on. Now, to set up the screw-down for it (under the seat), and finish the rest of the body work and paint prep. Then, wait for those golden painting weather days....
