Re: Painting tins

$25 {maybe less} at the auto parts or paint store should get you a NIOSH approved respirator mask.

Re: Heads up, linking to pics in forum posts violate new Photobucket terms of service

Re: Fried 2 batteries this weekend...

Check the ground?

Re: Clear coating my tank

A touch...

Re: Mystery Bike 1939 Jawa/Norton/BSA

An image search has that same bike having been for sale in Alabama.

Unfortunately, it was a Cycle Trader ad, and it has expired.

Re: Making a prism tank.... I hope
