I chose to use plastidip as kind of an experiment. The finish looks pretty nice. Works for a thing. The good thing is, if I don't like it, I can peel off and start over.

Adam, the site gallery isn't set up right. There are no permissions set, or galleries. So essentially, while it lets you upload a photo the site doesn't know where to "put" the picture. It is a disconnect between the site storing the images, and having a url to display it. I've been quite lazy, in that I've been meaning to fix. For about two years.

Until that magical day, we still need to post using a host service, imageshack, imgur, photobucket etc.

Rebuilt top end of motor and installed today. Got it running but sounds like it has a little valve tick. Maybe I have to check valves again. I'll do it in the morning.
