Nice! The wheels accent the roof so it all comes together in a package that looks like it was meant to be!

Fish eye eliminator might still be OK in say Rustoleum but if you put it in modern auto paint it fouls up the chemistry and the mess is worse than the fisheyes

you dont use fish eye eliminator from the automotive refinish store in rustoleum,, never never.. wrong base...read the rustoleum can.. then the refinish store reducer can...you use the fish eye stuff in your acrilic enamel, as well as other paints.

btw. for those reading this post.. be careful which paint you put over another, and never mix the different base paints unless ya want a real mess.

just saying..

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

you need to post whether you want the chair to be moveable or not... if not, simple half round pipe clamps from electric store or maybe lowes will work...
