Today I removed the gas tank, gas tank pedestal, battery box, carburetor, oil filter mount, and fenders. It's really starting to look stripped down now. I don't think it will be long after I get the engine out that it will be ready to go to Pickens to be sand blasted and epoxy primed. I told them that I would have the engine and sheet metal taken off when I sent it in. The sheet metal I will probably have soda blasted but I haven't decided yet. I'm surprised how fast it is going, I might be ready to do some plowing by spring!
