Logan's first reel build Penn 180
« on: January 27, 2018, 07:34:47 PM »
From my poll post of what to build next, the 180 was the big winner. Since my son Logan has already started taking it apart, I decided to have him put it back together. So here's his first build thread.
He started by completely disassembling it all by himself.



After the parts soaked in Simple Green for a few days I had him scrubbing and rinsing them really good.





Got to track down a few parts before assembly, but he's pretty excited! ;D

You can't catch them from your computer chair.

I hope you had a screen on that drain, or your going to be missing a few more parts.  ;)

Yep, I have a stainless mesh screen I put in the drain.  I drop more parts than he does!  ;D

Looks like most all of the parts are here and ready to go. 
Hopefully we can assemble it in the next week or so.
