Now that I have your attention....I'm wrapping this long overdue restoration up today. Still need to get a pair of lights refinished, but they are packed away in storage while we move.

This is the Squire 9 I picked up off of Mr Perry Spring of '11. I had VanSickle color match the paint, with some added metal flake. I'm thrilled with the finish. VERY durable, with a nice shine (dried enough to handle in probably 4 hours with hardener). I was thinking a quickie resto on it, but ended up into it deeper than my Big Ten.

Bronze suits Maynard's old Carryall, don't you think?

I just slapped the rest of it together today, and will fire her up and tinker tomorrow, if time allows. I just needed it rolling as we're getting ready to move out in the next couple weeks.

Thanks guys...I really enjoy working on them, but where I we're living now, and with all that's going on, it can become a real pain to get work done. I have more plans, but they'll be on hold for a while. This little guy is on deck:
