Default CL Performer before and after pics

I spent $25 dollars to rescue her from a field she was sitting in.

Before



Here's after I cleaned and painted, and bought a few new parts. I still need to mount the tank holder.

I used 1/16 x 1" metal and bent it to shape, then put a piece of metal under the lid to attach it. There were holes in the lid about 1/2 wide where the old handle attached, thats why I used 1" metal. I had to cut the top of the metal so the handle would fit.
Here's some pics.

If you look close there was a lot of rust at the bottom, other than that, yes it was pretty clean.
