I went down to a local monument company (headstones, statuary, etc) yesterday to get the frame, swinger and some misc parts blasted. $30 with less than 24 hour turnaround! I’m going to be bringing a lot of stuff to these guys.
We’re up on our third coat of etching primer now. I’m rattle canning the primer (SEM 39693 green) because someone left his primer gun in Chicago. Good stuff though. It’s not meant to build but it can.
If the weather holds up the frame should be in color tonight.
