I've been doing little piddly things the last few days, so nothing picture worthy.

Dr. Crank, my first guess was a chicken hawk too. But maybe they have something different in Europe. Get out your 'bird book' Dutch.

Thank you guys. I'm really liking this paint, it will stay shiny a long time. The down sides are, it has a very strong smell and there is a huge overspray problem. I covered my '36 Ford truck first,...
