Thank you to everyone for posting their ideas/experiences!!!!
heh...iffit had just OO in it why burn it out?
just roll it around a bit and
build a fire on the grate and let 'er season....
Started on mine today... welded in the air intake, scrubbed the barrel down and hit it with a dose of naval jelly as it is a bit rusty..pressure washed with antibacterial simple green and rinsed, force dried with a
bullet heater, and primed...I've got a god awful hunter green paint to put on it, and a can of yellow for the name...I like the idea of the bottle opener, but I think I'll wait until I've made few and get one I am happy with and performs well before I make one look like a Turkish bazaar.
Has anyone been cliche enough to do one in Harley Davidson?
I was thinking 40's rat rod with pinstriping...
