Went for celtic, It looks a bit different to this when sprayed. Like a Hetchins green kind of colour.[/img]

finished spraying thank god thats done.

I really like the fc parkes logo, would it be really bad to use it rather than the specific manxman logo? I presume would hurt value if I went to sell?

different grades of wire wool and stanley blades really, just and tesco degreaser engine spray.

I've not really used rust remover much except to soak rear derailleur in.
