Refinishing a 185k: Work in Progress Wednesday11:00:00 AM
Spring in Chicago, and all the
joys I mean, thunderstorms, it brings.
While the weather yo-yos up and down and the barometric pressure follows, I sit patiently waiting with my Singer 185k parts in a state of readiness - waiting to be primed and painted...
I spent last weekend while the kids played in the yard cleaning up the deck, moving all of our patio furniture out of our unheated garage and setting up a make-shift painting station for myself in said garage so that I can at least be ready for painting when and if I can ever get 3 or 4 days here in Chi-town where the humidity is optimal and the temperature stays above 55F.
I have about an hour or so more of sanding to do on the main machine and a good scrub and I'm ready to tape and prime.
My goal is to finish sanding tonight and tomorrow night after the kids go to bed and have it ready for paint for Saturday, if the weather holds.
I'll update when I can finally start painting...
