Okay, now that I have my glasses on I can see something distinctly round. I'm still not used to these things.

 

Das uses ball bearings a lot. They are highly prized by scrapologists!

Get the TIG out!

You are very right! Wagner has another date in the shop for touch ups, so I'll give it a go. :)

Thanks Andrew. I've realized nuts make great toes on some critters.

Thanks Pete. :) I'll get the tig out this weekend and start practicing.  

 

Some new pictures after cleaning Wagner up. I applied a little hydrogen peroxide last night and will try a little more to experiment at getting him to a nice light rust brown color

The chickens don't seem to mind him being in the yard, just be careful not to hit Wagner with the lawnmower or you might end up with more parts to work with.

lol I'll keep him inside for now. yeah that would do a number. doubt it's be the worst thing i've found while mowing.

My homemade rust mix is a bottle of drugstore peroxide, couple tablespoons of vinegar and a tablespoon or two of salt (I never actually measure, these are guesstimates).  I've wow'ed friends before by spraying it on bare steel and watching rust form instantly.  I continue to apply until I get the rust effect I want.  I was actually gonna suggest you try rusting da pesky rabbit!

I'll give it a try. Thanks Spanky! I I think he would look goo in a rusty brown. :)
