Now that looks like a pretty serious unit. I guess now you will have to road test it and put up some Q pics...

Got my rig back from the blaster. Primered half of it, then a shower came. Sprayed a phos acid rust preventative on the rest to finish primering and painting this weekend. Image

Thanks Guys! I decided to put a rough coat of paint on her to protect the metal during the wrath of hurricane Florence... It's rough, with a lot of overspray, but you can see my general color scheme.Image

Good thing that you got something on it before having to get it blasted again.

Absolutely, got to give the blasters something to work on... :D

I agree. I couldn't believe how fast it flash rusted. I had about a 26 mile trip from the blaster to home and by the time I arrived, it already had a shadow of rust.

Nice unit, it will attract attention anywhere you take it. Looks amazing even without tbs final paint coat. Don't let a little hurricane stop you from posting q view

Final coat of paint this afternoon. Painting is the most frustrating part. So many variables when you don't have a paint booth. But I think it turned out alright. Q view this weekend! Image

It looks great but I thought for sure that those initials would be red.

Ah painters tape. I thought the letters looked a tad rough but did not want to mention it... :D

The rest looks bloody marverlous. Take a bow, pat yourself on the back and crack a frostie... you've done well! :kewl:

*final paint pics*
Postponed Q view to wait for my tel tru therms to arrive. I ordered two of the big 5" dial tel tru therms for my vertical sections.

The middle section will be monitored by the Maverick. I didn't want to install dial therms in the middle because it would disrupt the look. Thanks everyone that helped me with this build. It has been a long two years! Image
