I've been reading and posting on here for a few months now, I bought my first cruiser this past July and have been working on the body ever since (attempting to repair rust and repaint in my spare time). A friend and I just finished spraying the doors, quorter pannels, fenders, hood, and other various accessories. This weekend we hope to complete the body work on the tub, re mount the tub on the chasis and spray the final coat of paint. It should look really sweet when finished, I chose a deep metalic blue for the tub, fenders, doors, and hood - the upper half will be a nice white - I'm really excited, and will post pictures when it's done (that is if I ever figure out how to post them). However, there are still a few major concerns...I have not done anything mechanically to this rig. I was hoping to use this as a DD as soon as it was reasembled, but am now realizing that this may not be a possibility. Are there any suggestions for things to do of major importance (matenaince or otherwise) - i have changed the oil, spark plugs, and will replace all the fluids with synthetic. I will also change the breaks - any key trouble areas I should focus on? Thanks for reading the novel, Andrew.
