Finished painting my horn button. A guy on the samba posted about a seller on ebay that sells clear horn buttons for $3.50 plus $2.00 shipping. Figured I'd order one and give it a try for that price. Spent more than that on the paint and super tiny paint brushes. Laughing It came out ok. Oh, and you can also see I filled up my tank at the new ethanol free gas pump down the road!


link to clear buttons if anyone else is interested.

Talked the guy at Home Depot into color matching a quart of Rustoleum to match 45 year old faded Zenith Blue.
Sprayed the two donor doors. Not a perfect match but close enough. I may add some faux-tina effects to the doors just so the blend in a little better until I can afford to get a full paint job.

Picked up Judy's new heater channel and got to work cleaning off all the body sealant. Hopefully this weekend I'll be welding and putting the body back on the pan.
