Brunton Stalker XL #22 Build

Repainting complete. I went with metallic blue & metallic black. After I got the car stripped down, I was amazed how much rock chipping there was on the rear fenders. Once a little more time passes for the paint to cure, I'll put some paint protection film on the rear fenders (EDIT: I fixed the rock chips, in case that's not obvious).

 

Once the weather is a little nicer, I'll take some better pictures.

 

Finally starting the car today, after sitting silent for two months, was music to my ears.

Thanks, Bob. I hope to have that figured out in a few days.

 

Do let us know here. It is a little early in the "season" for our type of cars but hey, if there is a Cyber Monday-Sunday price, you never know? I have never built a car but your build process looked pretty methodical from what my mostly untrained eye could perceive. It looked like you powder-coated the frame early on in the build after fitment of the fiberglass which I think is considered a best practice.

Yeah, the timing of my listing will likely exclude the northern half of the country. I'm not in a hurry (no fire sale price :) ), and might appreciate the opportunity to continue driving it until the spring when the buyer pool widens substantially.

 

That's correct on the powdercoating sequence. I completed the entire car, then took it apart to have the frame & suspension bits powdercoated, then did final assembly.
