Trying to get a little done here and there.  Got the cast bogie member back on.  A lot of progress on blasting and painting.   Hopefully I'll start assembling more in the near future.  Working on getting the front leaf spring components done so I can move onto the front and rear axles.

The fun, reassembly part's coming right up Brad. It looks great. Nice shop too! The forklift must be nice - all I have to help lift my stuff is a horse...and all he wants to do is argue.

No, I went round and round on the paint color.   Even painted the entire frame twice to have a larger sample to look at.  I ended up going with 33070.  I liked the darker green and started with the late ww2 semi gloss on smaller items but once I sprayed the frame it was too glossy for me.
