Cleaning Up the Caroline

Here are a few pictures of the #1 This past week I have been sprucing in up some. So far the cellar boxes have been dropped, cleaned, and re-packed. I have also stripped the pilot and repainted it. Currently I have been stripping the wheels and re painting them as well. The wheels are being painted with Rustoleum “Colonial red”and I have opted not to paint the white on the tires. I have also taken the driver star castings, polished the star and painted the background the same red.

I think this “new look” is alright and it does make the drivers look taller. The #1 will look good but not great for the Roundup. Maybe someday it will get the shopping that it really needs to make it the jewel that it can be.
