My cozy little nook in the corner!
Pulled this out of my storage unit a couple of weeks ago.
This is what 9 years of rust on an unpainted frame looks like!
And it was never left outside!!! :oops:




Welded this one up 9 years ago, when I still had a welder & a shop. Feel like I need a tetanus shot just from looking at it. :eek:
Now, at LONG last, I've resumed work on it! What exactly is it? The big reveal is coming soon! Stay tuned...

Now we don't want you off out there raiding and Marauding do we? ;)

Or, leave it and call it "patina"! :)
I think this one's way beyond the "patina" stage! :LOL:

Does that sound like something I'd do? :unsure:

Since I still live in a stinkin' apartment, & have no place of my own to work, I took it to my aunt's, where I could at least
power my angle grinder, to wire-wheel the "patina" off. Working under her carport, I got it cleaned up, then hung & primered!



Looks just a tiny bit better, IMO. 😁

Got 'er in paint!



Back to the dreaded storage unit 😳 where it lives.
Of course, there's no power, but it's not necessary just for paint curing & assembly!

Nice, but it won't be an exact twin.
Naturally, I had to create some monstrous hybrid. :eek:

Weather & other things holding me up at present,
but the "big reveal" is close! 😁
