Td-z build

Post by Rippin-lips » Sun Jan 20, 2019 10:47 am

I bought the reel for the spool and then decided the spool needed a deserving reel, so I built one.

Nice!
I have a basket case tdz all torn down ready for paint, was thinking a white pearl or metal flake... seeing yours confirms that is the color to go with.

Thanks, Forrest. I went with this color because it was left over from a Plymouth Barracuda repaint. I’m very happy with how it came out though.

The metal insert was removed from the housing and it was painted. I only fish fresh water and I have 2 others that are painted and so far they’ve held up for over a year.
