Applied the first coat of Rust-Oleum Top Side Paint in battleship grey. It now takes at least 24 hours to cure before a second coat can go on.

That is a 1956 10HP I bought for $100.00 last summer. I rebuilt the carb and relpaced the seals in the lower end and of course the impeller. It runs great and I plan to repaint and decal it. It's a keeper.
