I am still working on the tank.

I managed to get the cracks leveled. Then I put on 2 layers of 2k clear coat, sanding in between to get a homogeneous surface.

Next I successfully applied the decals. Now I'm layering the clear coats to smooth the deals and protect them. I have [2 coat then sanding] +[another 2 coats and sanding] done.

I am thinking I'm going to need [2 more coats then sanding], then a thin final coat.

Finally, I'll have to figure out what works to polish this stuff. I did a trial polishing spot tonight and I am not even close to getting a good result.

While the paint was curing, I have disassembled the carbs completely. They are spread out on the pool table right now. Over the next couple of weeks I hope to give them a the royal cleaning and reassemble with new butterfly shaft seals.

Sorry, no pictures tonight.

Thanks for checking in on me- I was expecting you or Curtis to ping me soon.
