Nice work on the headlight patina!I'm back in the garage after spending a few days in the mountains with military families who are in recovery from various effects of war. We had some very nice views of the wild life to include daily visits from moose.
Originally, I planned on making a fiberglass tank. After measuring my decals and the amount of space left for lettering, I decided to cover the top tubes in 22ga sheet metal and rivets and blend the metal edges with Lab Metal.
Thanks again, Fordsnake for the advice on paint. I purchased several cans and the color is outstanding. I have my rims back and am applying the initial coats on all components and accoutrements.
I use Renascence Man's patina work on "Spaceliner" as a benchmark standard to come up to. I'm beginning to apply the patina on small parts and am liking the results. I still am nervous about the immense patina job ahead of me. The biggest issue I have is the application of primer (which sticks out like a sore thumb) and the iron powder. This is a learn as you go issue.
