I swore that I would not put myself through this again but pulled the shell off another Boler
last week, sandblasted it yesterday and rolled on a coat of epoxy primer after getting it home. Frame is in excellent condition with no cracks or rust through and axle
is straight. On removing layers of paint
and surface rust, I uncovered the serial number slightly ahead of the jack
. Plans are to roll on at least 3 coats of black enamel in the next couple of days and setting the shell back on the frame by the end of the week. I have a few other things to accomplish before dragging it out to the meet in Mission at the end of May.
