Thumper to be blown apart!
The pipemaster in Peoria has finished the exhaust system and Thumper is back with Larry in Dwight. It was a little tight working around the starter but it’s fine now. This work done, it means we can blow the frame apart to send down to Powder Coating Unlimited in Bloomington. Mark will powdercoat everything he can get into the ovens and the exhaust will be ceramic coated. During that time Larry will get to work back in Dwight. The motor and the rest of the drive train will get cleaned and painted before the chrome and polished aluminum goodies get put on.
During the blow out of the body Larry makes a list of all the nuts, bolts, and fasteners that will be ordered and shipped from the Totally Stainless folks so everything looks great as it gets put back together after painting.
