Decals should go on tommorow, then lacquer, as many coats as possible

Belly pan not done as needs fibreglassing around the casing holes

Cor'Blimey, that really making me want to get home and start working on mine... where did you get the decals done and is there any way you can get the original paint codes?

also, is that right-hand silencer the original? or "repaired", thinking about welding mine back up with a bit of fabrication

The right silencer is original tho been repainted in pj1, i have another thats been welded previously, no good to me but certainly do in an emergency

Paint codes are near impossible to find,

Automart do a silver alloy that seems to be a good match, won't know til its clearcoated

Decals bought on ebay from an american company, good color match but now as i've applied them i've found the ones for the nose are too short

And the rear is too dark

Not sure whether to keep them or try again

Clear coating starts today
