This stuff is thick!
Wish my car had paint this tough

Bet Giant don't use paint this nice these days.

Head badge is looking cool

Not sure if I'll leave it, paint it a highlight color, or stick something over the top of it.


Plan is, if I can just get enough time in to strip the rest of the paint off before the weekend, Saturday will be assembly day and I think I'll have to call it finished then whatever the result is.

I don't think I'm gonna make it.

This is the last weekend I have to finish and take photos, and I just don't have the time. :(

After the BO is over I'll get the thread moved to the regular builds section.

Hopefully next year I'll be in a better position to do a build off bike. Thanks everyone for the likes and comments, and to all the Chicago Taildraggers who helped me out with tools, parts, and advice (@GuitarlCarl @oldgreaser @SlyRed and @Skipton ).
