    Outstanding work! I say whatever dust or dings you get on it in Iraq, make it a point to never wash it off or fix it once you get back CONUS.

    I might even call it the "Tac Rat."

    Oh, and just an idea... how about some expended 20mm casings for grips? I know you've got access to all sorts of dunnage and brass. It'd be way cool to really tac it out. No, wait. Don't do that. I'm gonna do it to my second build. Forget I mentioned it. ;-)

    First off, from one Iowa boy to another WELCOME to the site, I am glad to be in the company of you and so many others that have served. I have not served however my father was a machine repairman in the Navy from 64-69 and I appreciate all those who have served so we can all enjoy our freedoms. As far as the Des Moines area I am not sure but I think that member HOOCH is located around Coralville/ Iowa City area so he may know of some sweet spots there or if you want to come over to my neck of the woods (Davenport) you could check out the motorcycle swap meet held every year at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds on Labor Day weekend. It is a motorcycle swap but there are always parts for bicycles too even some rolling frames. Good luck and God speed with the rest of your deployment.

    Nice build, my friend. Thanks for your service and for sharing your cool builds with the forum. My grandfather flew B-24's in WWII - I've always been a big fan of the 'Olive Drab' paint.
