Did you mean "motion"?
I think Christian is too young to remember Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.

Never too young for Smokey, just not old enough to remember.  When music was music. 60s and 70s was a amazing time on the radio. My kids know good music as they were raised with it always on in the house. ....Doug

Even though I grew up listing to Chicago and .38 Special that my parents played (a bit of what my dad grew up with and a bit of what my mom grew up with) I haven't been around long enough to hear 60s/ 70s/80s music straight from the radio, just my parents' favorites, so I don't know the majority of the music that was popular at the time.

I wish music was like that today; I've been growing up listening to rap on the radio. >:(

Buy an AM radio, construct a small AM transmitter, couple that up to a computer that is playing what people today call "oldies" and there you go... :)

Doug Rose

Classic Hits ..... not Oldies. No AM radio needed. All you need is good taste in Music. Cool band out of England you might have heard of...maybe.....The Beatles..they had a few hits.....Doug

Here's an example of removing an awful paint job and revealing nice original paint.

Dave...that did you use? I have two "blue" 202s that I want to strip off just the blue. Beautiful job!!....Doug

Just paint stripper, but I moved fast.  As soon as I applied the stripper, I wipe it off so it doesn't get into the paint underneath.

Do you have a "before" picture for comparison?

From what i see, all that I know is, it seems to be a multi-line for me. I don't have a model like this yet :(.. I can't help you more babybearjs. Nice piece..
