    GREAT JOB young lady! Your making the 'boys' look bad!! (that includes me) I love seeing kids work on bikes. you will no doubt have the coolest bike on the block. I also like seeing a vintage stingray preserved, as I had a few of them when I was your age. Dad must be proud. What kind of paint is that blue? Man I love that bike!

    end of the day a rideable bike

    for those wanting to know the paint is Krylon X Metals anodize spray 2301 Blue over the Converter base looks cool but this stuff scratches
    really easy so we are going to try a urethane clear over it ...see if it toughens up a little.
    Somehow she talked me out of the seat and sissy off the Scrambler.....Spoiled ???? :lol: :lol:

    a little more of Rays proggress , she has a full plate this week with school projects and little league so she pretty much finnished the bike
    'cept for some squealing brakes and a worn rear cluster it is a rider... we rode about 5 miles yesterday around town.
