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.

PUG SHOT!!
