Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Lots of tips & tricks here on the Cabe to remove old overpaint, from oven cleaner to citrus based paint removers, lots of options. I prefer the citrus gel paint removers and 0000 steel wool.

A few hours with magic erasers dipped in lacquer thinner was a good start. More to do, but I think the under paint has held up well. A few before and after shots…

COVID kept me home this week and gave me more time to work on this project. A few layers of wax gave her a bit of shine back. I was able to tear down the pedals, grease them up and put them back together. Did the same for the BB and headset hardware. I also got the petrified tires off the wooden rims. And I took the first step towards reassembling the ole girl.

More progress on my Mead Ranger project. She’s starting to come back together and I’ve started in on the front wheel. It’s now totally disassembled and I’m weighing my options when it comes to the rim. I’d love to rebuild the wheel with the original wooden rim; I’m just not yet sure it’s strong enough to ride.

The ND Model A hub restoration is complete. After a multi-day bath in Simply Green, the pieces and parts emerged free of 100+ years of grit and grime. I had every intention of replacing the ball bearings, but was surprised to discover that they are of a unique size that I don't have in my collection. Other than that...the parts shined up nicely and the hub came back together without issue. A few before and afters...
