Here's my improvised paint booth for Saturday...a 45 dollar eBay find! I laid a tarp down and set it up over it. This will keep the dust down and bugs out for the spray lacquer. I set up a fan on the outside for air removal. There are plenty of areas where air can enter on the bottom and corners, so no need for an intake area. I think it will work fine. I'll wear a respirator.

  Well, Danny came by yesterday, and we made a day of it. It took us about three hours to get setup to spray. We ended up getting two coats on about half of the organ and one set of legs. He was full of tips for me. I feel a little more confident about doing this now. I took a couple of pictures, but it was a little dark in there...late in the day:

Sorry I've not posted in a while. I've been BUSY at my real job, and am now interrupted by a birthday shelf system for my much better half. I found  an action shot of me learning to spray lacquer:

 
After I get the organ set up, I'll post a picture.

I set up the organ and took a photo. Today I sat in the tone generator and bolted it down. I also ordered the trek preamp, for those taking notes. That hurt!

I've been following this project and now it's starting to get exciting!  Sorry for your pain though.

Yeah Darryl. It cost about $300.00 MORE than I thought. If you know anything about Hammond organs, the early models did not have percussion like the classic B3 model I've built. That was an extra charge from Trek II. They already have the circuitry in the preamp, but said the CV model I have required a separate unit. Go figure. Oh well....Anyway, today I installed the vibrato line box. I flipped the organ over to make it easier. It still wasn't easy due to the type fasteners they used. But I persevered and got it on. I took picture of it upside down.

I just received the new preamp for the organ. This is a digital unit that replaces the heavier tube preamp. It also includes a reverb unit, and a unit to add percussion to the organ. Hammond organs this old did not have percussion, and a B3 model does. Here's a picture of the new parts. I'm in the deep end now!

But you do know how to swim, right?

Well, I learned a little late in life to swim....so I guess that still applies. I'm learning as I go about Hammond organs. I've always said, if you can read and add, you can do anything. I think that is about to be put to the test for me!

I'll tell you everything I know about Hammond organs. The church I attended as a kid had one and if one were to inadvertently bump the speaker, it sounded like thunder. Hope that helps.

Seriously though, I wish you well as you undertake this faze of your project.
