Lookin' good perry 8) The frame looks to be in great condition..did you have to do much to it? Im liking the black! Gives me greater impetus to get on with mine once my frames back.

Its currently at colour-tech in grays having some hose guides brazed. Removed the aps mounts in the end to clean her up.
Just waiting on some forks which should be here tomorrow hopefully then i can run them down for spraying along with the frame. decals need printing sometime this week so he can lacquer over them too.

managed to stumble upon some dmr cranks thats about it as far as parts go :roll:

i just sprayed gt85 inside the tubes and that was it :lol: i remembered a mate has access to all the proper waxoyl kit . did the entire underside of a mk2 escort in half hour on sunday . so might see if he will give it a quick squirt next time he does a car

its actually a really really dark metallic blue

Cool...that colour looks even better. Was thinking something with a slight metallic myself if not it'll be just flat. Colour wise its a toss up between brown or green, something drab anyway. I probably decide on the day :lol:

Got some earlier trailblades on the way with disc mount only so ill give them a go. Got it in my head that want it rigid for now...wouldnt mind some bombers at some point tho
