Apparently I've started giving monthly updates on what amounts to nothing more than playing with toys.
Well, as it turns out, mixing toys and power tools was not exactly the best way to cut a tunnel in to a tiny little gas tank but, as you all know, I'm a "Live on the edge" sort of a guy.
So, for my second attempt (Yes, I have quite a stash of model motorcycle parts, quit laughing) I figured I'd use the right tool for the job,
and seemed to meet with moderate success:
So, after countless ho...er....a bunch of time (I'm trying to maintain at least a shred of dignity here, you don't really wanna know how much time I spent with crap like this...do you?)I wound up with something a little less alien looking than the last time.
There's still more puttying, sanding and priming to do, but I gotta put it down for a bit.
This is where "The Little Shovel" (I hate it when people name vehicles) sits at the moment:
Next is the seat, which I think I have a handle on already & I wish I could find the bars I had set aside....I've got the weirdest set of problems.
Christ, I gotta figure out a better way to squander my time.
A job perhaps......
