Shari, where do you get that ninja head covering? And does that mean you can't use your polishing technique in France?

I'm using the Tyvek suits from HD and a shower cap from a cheap motel. I like the idea of keeping the black gunk off my neck and face.

It's just a cotton painters hood...I think we got it at the auto Painters Supply store (where we got our Zolatone) on Santa Fe south of Yale by Costco, but I'm sure any paint store would have them.

The problem is the black still gets on exposed bits...and at dusk (like this pic) he can't see through the clear full-mask he usually wears, so he still ends up with black on his eyes. Sometimes it's so bad, even after washing he still has "guy-liner" around his eyes! A true fashion statement to be sure!

Hi Dallas:

Yea, he first appeared in post 492. I've been keeping a beady eye on him ever since. Yet, I find myself taking a shine to the hooded fella.

Actuuuu-al-lllly Fred, his first appearance as a polisher was back in post #476...but he made his debut way back in #272 as a Zolatone shooter!

All our hard work has been recognized in Gillette at the International Rally....we achieved a 50's Decade "Platinum Award" (99.5 out of 101 points possible), Best Engineered Feature and tied for the Bud Cooper "Best in Show" award with Mark & Patti Carr's 1936 Clipper!

Congratulations on your awards! I am wondering what 1.5 points did you miss though? They must have worked hard to find something wrong!

Congratulations to you Shari and the Birka Buffer! Platinum award is great....but maybe next year with some more hard work you can win the Aluminum Award!

But really, was there any doubt you would own this decade after all your hard work?

What feature did you win for the "best engineered feature" on your trailer?

Gary

Congratulations!!

Shari & Rob:

Woo Hoo!! Congratulations on all your awards! Birdy is really a special trailer, a labor of love topped by a Ninja shine. Mark and Patti must have done a spectacular job on their '36 Clipper to tie you, and Congratulations to them too. Was the Precision Temp the best engineered feature? Safe travels home.

Congratulations on the awards! You have done a fantastic job with Birdie and there is no question that she is an award winner. Betty is a cutie as well...

Awesome!

Congratulations to both of you! I can't imagine where that 1.5 points were taken either. Birdy is the perfect little trailer and your awards are well-deserved.

Very cool! Does this mean you're completely finished with the refurb?
