It's all about the same. Being a airplane owner the only reason anyone puts aircraft on their product is to tripple the price.

Well, found out O'Reilly's handles the kleen strip brand so I bought a quart of it (they can get gallons but don't stock it), the Rustoleum brand didn't do much on the enamel paint on the LUV but did a pretty good job on the lacquer paint on the 39, so will use it on that one.

Did a little more on the Luv today.

Anybody have any welding tips that can help me, they would be much appreciated, pretty much teaching myself as I go, doing the easier stuff first before digging into the more detailed mods. Thanks

Wow, 6 and a half year update, cant believe it has been that long and this topic was only back on page 3. Well, finally got rid of my house in Denver in 2016 and took care of my father who passed in July of 2017, finally sold his house last year so finally got some time back. Soooooo I decided to restore my 1968 Harley Davidson Rapido that my Grandfather gave me in high school (it was technically my first vehicle before my LUV). So Feb of 2019 till Nov of this year of off and on working on it. It had been sitting at my dads house outside since I moved to Denver in 1984 and I had move it to my house when I had to clear out his property.
Where it sat for 32 years.
Image
What it looked like taking it home.
Image
Image
and what it now looks like.
Image
Image

Link to my page of the rebuild with about 250 pics.
http://www.chevymetalhead.net/trucks/rapido.htm

Now that it is done I have tried to get motivated back to the LUV starting by getting my rear bumper rechromed which I just got back from the chrome shop that I had do my motorcycle parts. They did an excellent job on the bike parts but I am pretty disappointed on the quality of the bumper for what I paid for it.
Before I sent it off.
Image
Back from chrome

and sitting on the truck.

Hopefully it isn't another 6 years before my next update. :lol:

Thanks Karl, lately life is get up, go to work, deal with idiots, go home tired from dealing with idiots all day, eat, go to bed, rinse and repeat. So hard to get motivated, my brother is in the same boat, he is so close to finishing his 69 C10 that is posted on page 2, just needs to finish the rear wheel tubs, reinstall the air ride system and a little more buffing, but he hasn't touched it for about 4 months.

Took me a second LOL :smt017
Should have left it in the window, we have only had snow once and it has been in the high 40's, we usually cant see our yards starting in October.

If you're really really disappointed with that bumper just sent to me so you don't have to look at it anymore. :P
