    More Sprite progress finally

    Been waiting for days or maybe even weeks for two consecutive dry days to get some paint on. Meanwhile, we have been working on, trying to salvage the wiring harness. It's not too bad although most of the original woven cover is gone and replaced with friction tape. There are also a few pretty ugly "customizations" that need to be repaired. The dry days finally came. Or at least the first one did and the forecast for tomorrow is still promising. I managed to get some white epoxy on the entire bottom, including the repaired wheel well. More importantly, I also get that ugly red paint resolved in the engine bay. Now with any luck and assuming my back recovers enough, I will get some of the lovely primrose to cover the primer. Then it comes down off the rotisserie to start assembly. Yes, that is the wheel well and spring hanger box that got all the welding and new metal. Will try to post more tomorrow if successful.
