    OK, the "Covid" paint job is done!! As long as you keep your "social distance", the paint looks great. I'm working on the lid for the box now. It's the same color as the knee pads on the large tank, a GM light driftwood metallic.
    Pictures of the two tanks. I'll probably run the larger tank on the rally so I can go over 100 miles without fuel worry.

      OK... so enquiring minds want to know. What did you use to paint? Paint type? Equipment etc...

        Painted with rattle cans! I used Dupli-Color primers, the GM Driftwood, and the clear on the side covers. There is a local paint shop that will mix up any paint one can at a time, $25, that is the black with gold flecks in it. I used two cans of the 2K gloss clear for the tanks and the box lid, the "high impact" parts. This is a two part paint in a rattle can. That was $25 per can.
        Working on the seat now. Just took it to a shop, about six weeks to get it done. I ordered foam yesterday and will get the pan back for a few days to shape the seat how I want it. My problem is the bike is a 1979, and the seat was from a 1980. It does work, but takes a bit of cutting qnd welding to get it looking and fitting well.

          Things are on hold for more than just the seat. This morning...

            Ray.... where you live I am presuming that the picture is somewhat normal. Here in Mississippi on the other hand. We look just like your picture and everything has completely shut down. Of course we will hopefully be out of the deep freeze by this weekend.
