Show your works in progress!

Post by Shellbelly »


How about some pics of your rods and reels exposed, where you do your best work, and what you're working and waiting on. Let's see some clutter. I've seen some great stuff out of you guys on this site. Some of it starts out just like this. This is a couple of Penn 67's I'm cleaning up, a mariner waiting for parts, and some 249 plates loafing on the left side. Anybody know where I can get some decent 24-249 handles? I need to get those big gals dressed and off my desk.

There is a degreaser solution, a 10% acetic acid solution, and mineral spirits.
