Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

After about 10 hours of surface prep (I left some scratches on for a "used vintage, been there " look ) 2 light coats of auto grade base paint of a lighter more sun bleached green tone IMO, 3 days drying time, one coat of clear protective sealer, two days drying, about a half day in a hot box and here she is !!!
I realize she ain't the real McCoy and I'll probably never be in a financial position to have a real one but she looks way more authentic than the gloss black she once dressed in and that's good enough for this ole paper puncher. The lights do make the color look different depending on the brightness as was told to me by a collector of the "real" ones after he sent me some pics of his collection of these rare scopes.
If I'd drag her thru the Glades for 6 months it might be hard to tell the difference. LOL !!!

I'm happy with the ole girl. :mrgreen:
