    "That bad boy is an sleeper..."

    Sleepers were little old Grannies in a nondescript gray or green Plymouth that had a Hemi buried in it...

    That Bad Boy is not a sleeper - with all of the goodies hanging off it, it looks like a Star Wars, Kick A#@! Machine!

    A little skim coat, and she'll be straight as an arrow. Looks really good naked.

    Media blasting is serious work when you’re the only one.

    The ugly isn't too ugly. A toast to a job well done, until the next phase.

    Yeah, you find little "oh-by-the-ways" as you get the top layer of crud off.

    It looks like those should be an easy fix (note I said "should"). With my luck, the whole area blows out and it takes another patch before you're done.

    Just let Elijah do some of the work for you. Jack and Evan make good helpers too.

    Yes, I’m sure that would work as well. Being these are stress point/stress fractures, I have added support to these area and welded/ground them back to original shape. All good :-)
