Looking forward to following your progress....especially considering I just picked up a 54 and finding parts is a little harder that the 47-53 models.

wow.. that's going to come out nice..

have you seen the inside the frame rail painting device. sort of shove the hose/nozzle into the frame rail and it coats the inside as you pull the nozzle out while spraying..

keep the pictures coming.. wow...
