thanks for all your positive comments. we are happy with the flatrod II.
Tim, i may have those old directionals around if you want to add them to something. you can't buy that patina.
Vern, on my truck anything that isn't sprayed urethane flat black is either krylon satin or rustoleum satin black. my brother was impressed when i demo'd the 10 minute drying time.
today is the second day back at "work" (more like play). drove into a metal recycling center to turn in some copper and brass. the guys that know me and saw the old truck were interested, thought it looked good. a stranger said "that truck doesn't belong in a place like this" you'd think i was turning it in for scrap with that comment. it's a work truck that looks pretty at the moment.
thanks again to all those who answer questions for us just getting our feet wet and hands dirty, dick r.
