    As I had recently posted not long ago I snagged a homelite super 1050 in pretty reasonable shape aside from the paint peeling off of it. Well for the sheer hell of it I have recently stripped and re-painted the saw for a little better vibe to the old homie. The paint is nowhere near the exact match of the original, however I'm still fond of the red I selected to take its place. I am currently in the process of making decals, I have the layout I want now all I have to do is buy the correct paper. Anyway enjoy the pics! I hope you like em!
