Those tins are looking mighty fine sir! What paint did you use for the frame?

It's Dulux Metalsheild. It's really nice and thick and the gloss is amazing. I hope it lasts.

Damn, nice find on the tank and sidecovers - what is the tank interior like?
If you find yourself scratching your head at how some parts go back together at any stage, this thread is an invaluable resource to have handy.

Tank interior is actually really good. I'll put some dealer through it as a precaution and for long term protection.

Thanks for the link.

I've got factory workshop and parts manuals as well as having swung the spanners for 20years, but sometimes things just don't go as you think.

Finished second coat on frame yesterday and was able to do a quick mock up with some of my goodies.

Engines in good shape, apart from all the red.
Currently going through some extensive clean up work. Compression was good and it ran really strongly. Can't wait to get this thing on the road

Also got the gauges all tidied up. Pretty happy with how they came out. Had to give them a little test fit.
