I can see it needing a soft brush and a bucket of soapy water to get the dirt off.  A spray wax and a rag won't cut it here!

And today I have painted the frame.  I've carefully closed the shed door and i'll not disturb now for at least 24hrs to keep the dust down.  I'll venture in tomorrow afternoon and sneak some pictures.

I did seriously consider the bed liner for the frame, but went with plan A and the hammered finish I had originally decided upon.

The visible parts such as the frame spars were sprayed, the areas that will be hidden by seat or bodywork, such as the sub frame, were hand painted with a final coat sprayed on.

I really should have left the frame to dry for longer, but couldn't resist some reassembly today, being very mindful of the still green paint.

I know not why the pictures are rotated 90 degrees anti clockwise.

The finish is a little gauche for my tastes, but the silhouette is close to what I'm aiming for.
