I have to say after 39 years of doing things the hard way. I can honestly say I know good advice when I see it and the above statement is GREAT advice. I will head that advice when the time comes! Thank You for your hard learning Bansil, I appreciate you!

Yes, but just the yellow paint is peeling. I actually can't tell what is underneath. It looks like just gray paint. It is somewhat glossy and no wonder the paint eventually peeled. If it is primer, it sure is a glossy primer. Anywho, I'm going to scuff it and then prime with the Bus-Kote primer.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Well, the headlight buckets were all rusty and nasty, so I bead blasted them last night. Also picked up new adjusters and springs. I hate headlights I can't adjust. Also snagged what I believe is a 50 gallon tank. My capacity should now be around 110 gallons, just need to get it mounted and plumbed in. Well, after I cut the step out, clean the inside, and then clean and paint the outside.
