Not just yet mate. infact the only way i think i'll be allowed to do that is if i turn this one over to her
I would definitely recommend Humbrol or other modelling paint rather than Halfords
Sussex Modelling Shop it is then, and thank you very much for the offer of help, that really means a lot
i did the ear/turn test this afternoon, and it wasn't totally silent, but it did seem very smooth.
I've had another minor set back with the front cogs and they seem fairly knackered. I'm not sure which eyes i was using when i looked at them the first and second times, but it was obviously the wrong ones..
I'm going to re-fit them anyway and see what happens.
also, i bashed the headset about today but it's claiming squatters rights in the frame and won't budge
Good things that happened today..
- I got a part worn chain and corresponding 8 speed XT cassette (very pleased about that, thank you Steve!)
- rojo sent me a headset
- Missing bits should be collected tomorrow after a quick phonecall this afternoon.
- a very tidy Kona top arrived for the missus from Rotwild, ta mate (this may not be so good, she is keeping a very close eye on this bike)
did some pics..
not amazing, but not bad for a couple hours work
