Prime mover is having another night in the tank..[Still a few bits on it]...

SO-
“I call upon these persons here present to witness that I MISTERPOP do take these diecasts to be
my lawful over painted restorations. I promise to love and care for them and to be respectfull
to them always. [Or until they sell]……I give you this thinners dunking as a lasting reminder
of the paint that was applied many years ago before today, and anybody who has course to believe for
any reason why any of these items should not be stripped speak now and forever hold your piece...

Tomorrow I will commit these bodys [and chassis] to the tank of no return.....
