Finished this yesterday.





Today. Two hours of wet sanding on the original paint. Everywhere you don't see paint there was rust. There wasn't much paint left at the end.



Etch primer on the raw.



Then two hours later primer.

Bluedown.







Even though I am almost dead from the heat I decided to continue. Mostly as there is practically no wind.

Cosmos.





It's really rather difficult to show how utterly incredible this looks, but I tried.

Right. Decals are being printed within the next couple of days. My friend forgot. Probably the heat. Talking of which I have been going flat out, so I do need a break myself. It's literally just decals, final clear and then let it harden and build.

Sorry for the lack of updates on this. Simple fact is there hasn't really been any. The parts were delayed due to the pegs, and my buddy forgot to do the decals again. He's now had my toe in his arse, and printed them yesterday. He will laminate them today and send.

The parts finally shipped out yesterday and arrived today.



So I will get on switching the pedal axles around later.

Decals were laminated today. Should be here tomorrow, so weather permitting I can wipe the frame down, put the decals on and clear it.



Or, if it pisses down then hopefully Weds. Hoping to build this at the weekend !
