B3. Good running, good looking M5A1 Stuart tank!
The fender got mangled by a Sherman tank. Really.
A new fender was sourced and welded on.
Red oxide primer!
The recoil oil on the main gun was refilled with oil. It takes a hi grade, non foaming hydraulic oil.
Look for a drip of oil. That is where the air is purged from the recoil assembly.
The rear fender repair complete!
RELAX... It was just sprayed! The paint will dry a nice dull green but this shot was too fun not to post.
