    This stuff works great for sealing bike tanks. Second coat in, no red on any seam. Sealed it up well.

    They set a square flat surface to spin the nuts down on, saw those and knew they could do the job ;-)

    Sitting here this morning thinking about what to put together, I rolled the bike out and hand tightened some things on it.

    Sunday morning sitting her looking at the bike, I hung it special for the new hub fitment. Its gonna be hot and muggy today in vegas, maybe thunderstorm in the late afternoon for a minute or two. Sprinkled yesterday for 3 minutes.
    [​IMG]
    Didnt get any done on the bike yesterday, spent the day installing a floor in my son's room. Only whacked my thumb twice and forefinger once. Took about 12 hours to do 150 square ft. [​IMG]

    Spun this up while drinking the morning coffee..
    [​IMG]
    Later this morning, will wet sand and put final color coat down on the tank.
