    well...not exactly:laugh: just fresh off restoration! took her to my chain guy yesterday to get a chain made for it. it was quite the rode hard basketcase when i got it...for 5 bucks! i had to completely dissasemble it and beadblast the cases and other parts. New paint and all new gaskets and seals with new rings. took a while to find all the stuff. its still missing a chrome screen(74099), the red shield over the muffler(56582),and a muffler cap/deflector(56691) as well as 3 rubber bumpers(56298) for the air filter shroud. still looking for that stuff and may never find it! If anyone has leads let me know. i'm going to try to fab my own deflector so i can try to fire it up without covering my hand in black smoke... I thought about putting this in the homelite sticky but she's just too pretty to not share with everyone.

    So THAT'S what my saw is supposed to look like....

    I agree. I still need to scare up a few parts before digging into my 900D.

    Grant what paints did you use on your 900D? I'm going to strip and repaint my saw while I have it apart for the rebuild.

    rustoleum spray bombs...

    the paints i used were rustoleum rattle cans. Sunrise red and Racing green metallic. both are deeper bolder colors than original but its hard to determine that since most of the parts are faded. the green definately had a metallic to it just a shade lighter. both cans were bought at walmart i believe. And just a warning both cans spray it on thick so quick light coats prevent runs. i didnt clearcoat over the decals as i wont be running this saw in wood. She'll spend her retirement behind the bar with the others worthy of such an honor!

    Finally got around to the proof video

    since nothing really happens around here without video I finally got one of it running today. Didn't bother tuning it in, since she's a shelf queen. Definately rich on the high jet but it also still has the factory vane governor also. Thing runs like new! (I guess since I wasn't to come around for another 17 years lol)
