    I'll be testing out all the little fit adjustments once it's ready to go back together.

    Slowly slowly the paint comes off

    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.

    That is cool how the badge is embossed into the headtube.

    It is cool, but it does kinda derail my plan of designing a headbadge.

    Oh well, it looks cool and sure is easier.

    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 ).

    That's a bummer man. Hope you still had fun. You've shown a lot of support and participation in BO13 regardless if you finish or not. That's part of the fun in itself.

    I know the feeling. I've been where you are twice. Looking forward to seeing it finished as soon as you can get it done.
