    Very nice, GooCart! Loving the 335 as well!

    I think your Blackie is more aged than mine -I have a feeling mine will get there in no time!

    Tom, question going back to before you did the grain filler. You did a coat of laquer on the mahogany before adding filler correct? Is that something new your doing? You didnt do that in your other '59 thread. Still adding the linseed oil?

    Yes, my recipe for grain filler still includes linseed oil, but depending on which brand you are using, you may not need to. I use it to bind the powder sort of like a catalyst.
    The wash coat depends on what I'm aiming for. Same goes for the filler recipe.

    Thanks a lot mister Tom, I am re-re-re-reading this thread and the other sticky one, the build was truly wonderful and the result mindblowing. How about another one of those? :naughty:
