When the cat's away...

     Today finds me with an empty apartment - as the other half and her friend have gone to Niagara Falls NY to do some shopping. The perfect opportunity to get some work done. So far I've managed to get that GP38-2 I've mentioned previously, two wood sheathed vans, and two twin hoppers into the 99% alcohol bath for stripping

- while I take coupler boxes off a pair of RS-11 side sill walkways that were previously stripped. As soon as the Geeps' side sill walkways are stripped, the three of them are headed into the paint shop for a coat of flat black. Now if only I could get my hands on some Scalecoat II - CN Olive Green in a rattle can, I could get some of these hoods painted and decaled.

Update: A little scrubbing with an old toothbrush and a quick spritz with the flat black Krylon and the walkways are done.
