Well guys, with the motor back in one piece (and running) I found myself ready to move on to the casing for the actual saw. So, with my el-crapo (Skil) finishing sander and some 100 grit sandpaper, I went to town removing old paint and rust from the saw. I had to be super careful not to destroy the badges.

So there’s the saw after a good cleaning and sanding, and here it is with primer.

I did make a boo boo, and tried to sand out a run with 100 grit (stupid, stupid, stupid) and took the primer back down to metal. So I just hit the saw with another round of primer.

I look forward to getting the red on the saw cabinet tomorrow after church. Also, I’ve decided to do the trunions and cradle assembly In good old Hemi orange. I think the motor is going to get the same color applied to it also. For those parts I’ve decided to use Rustoleum’s engine paints. While I know that the parts won’t need the heat ability, I believe the look will be what I’m going for.

Looking good. Hemi Orange on the motor? I have some old spark plugs and epoxy. Want to dress it up like a tiny car engine? Cut the insulators off the tops of the spark plugs and epoxy them on the motor. Maybe a distributor cap epoxied up top to run plug wires to? Everytime I get to thinking about your project I start thinking of more ways to dress it up like a hot rod.

Note: I know William personally, so he won’t take this seriously…..

Note: I am going to reply to his post in the fashion I keep seeing certain people post around here….

Note: I will put my actual response in the following post…..

RandomMoron posted : For all that is holy William, you are so stupid you moron. That would never work and would cause the Earth to fall of it’s axis. Then where would all of the small children eat their lunch at? Did you think about the small childer in Iceland, and how they might feel about that? Huh, maybe you should quit posting responses to people’s blogs and think about how dumb your ideas are and stuff. A distributor cap? Really? I mean that was so many years ago. I think the motor needs a distribution block and an ECU, KTMM could program it to make coffee for him and insult you at the same time.

By the way KTMM, if that really is your name. I don’t believe that’s really your saw, and I don’t believe it was made in the USA. Also, I think you stole those pictures from someone else on photobucket named KrunkTheMadMan. How do you think he feels about you stealing his pictures. That’s what I thought you stupid liar.

I give up, I’m leaving Lumberjocks, and it’s (3) stupid people that post stupid stuff on everybody’s posts. And by the way, I DO HAVE SAND IN MY DRAWERS. It makes me a better wuudworker.

So here’s my actual response….. I like the idea William. I’ve got a couple of my own ideas that I don’t want to post yet, until I’ve made up my mind. Something about exhaust pipes and dust collection comes to mind…....

My mind is racing in ways to make all the other tools in my shop fit this theme….....

OooohK. I do have some better ideas though.
I’ve got a 350 four bolt main sitting over in the shop. With a rebuild kit I know I’ve got enough aftermarket performance parts to build it to pull at least 500 ft. pounds of torque. Let’s mount that on the saw.
Then we can add some real headers. I have Summit Racing on speed dial.
Seriously though. You’re doing this saw with the Woody Wagon them. I hope you’ve already figured out where you’re going to put this surf board when I get done with it. I’m going to pick up the Captain Morgan’s on my way to your house. We’re going to ride the saw to the beach.

I don’t know if it was one of your earlier posts, but I’ll say it again. I love using old car colors for old saws. A hot rod is a hot rod. They just aren’t all cars.

Wow that looks as good as stuff I sandblast with fine grit. Good job with this!
