Thank you for sharing. Makes me want a project (that I don't have the time for)!

Similar story here. Still use them on a fairly regular basis.

Enjoy!

Thanks for posting your project.

I really liked the patina on post #7, and had it been me I might have been tempted to keep them like that. There is some hard life history oozing from them!

But the black duratex looks really classy, they turned out great.

I kind of like the rounded corners...

Mine were sisters of those, originally owned by the same guy. Mine had rounded corners too. I covered mine with trim.

I'd go more like 1/8" radius, but I like it.  As much material was removed on these the mouth is probably measurably more flexible, but not a deal-killer.

I like the patina look too but that wasn't going to happen with these beaters. I actually got them from another member that rehabbed many LSs and he decided these couldn't be brought back. If you look closely, there is a fair amount of bondo in many places.  The duratex is hiding a lot of sins. I have a couple pair of Belles that look pretty. These spend time in a warehouse, outside, riding in a pick up, parties, etc. Sound darn good outside.

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed your build thread. I just re read it from start to finish. I really like build threads.

Thanks for sharing again.

I find it odd that when you posted the link to your thread that you had many many photos on, it used a photo I posted on your thread. What are the odds?

Me too.

Yeah, I saw that too and I'm not sure how it picks thread photos.  I don't mind it, I guess.

Thanks, they're a bit rough up close in areas, but I've had them several places already and they're getting some "character" now.  The corner and edge trim is absolutely doing its job.
