Steve, you need to get a smart phone or a camera! It’d be cool to see your project come along 😎

i know, i am behind the times but happy. i use a 2 times coverage rust oleum and think it is navy blue but not sure and it is in the basement and the cat is now in bed down there and cant look until morning. if we let him roam the house he will shred papers, he is only 2 and still has some kitten in him. i have done many projects and have many in the works. i have many 242nls and many 243as that were basket cases when i got them and now look almost brand new and function like new. i just painted the trim and hood of a small aquarium i had and got that working, just waiting to acclimate so i can get some fish.
