Hound - Painted Hood and Chest Fenders

Sanded, primer and painted while weather was clear today.
Sanded hood and fenders with 400 sandpaper before green coat.
The newspaper is covering an area of black I spray painted a few weeks ago that will be covered by grill.
Let first coat of green dry for an hour then did a second coat.
I will do the final clear coat later this week.
Time to order my decals soon.

The front bumper and grill I sprayed with dark grey and then a final clear coat.

Also riveted the back assembly onto the motocross harness.

Hound - Left Boot cont.

Finalized the PVC frame for left boot, and then started measuring and cutting vinyl panels to rivet onto frame.
Also did a test walk around wearing both boots assembled with frame and wheels.

This side panel on boot frame I had to use two pieces side by side and rivet together.
This will get riveted directly to PVC frame after painted.

The back panels turned out great with final clear coat.
I went with the dark grey color for the boot panels.

Hound - Left Boot

Started the left boot PVC frame this past weekend.
Amazingly it went pretty fast for one day, also spray painted the fender shroud in a primer coat.
The left boot repair I did earlier this year did not hold up, had to redo the rivets with support washers.
