I thought it was one of the unwritten laws of the Yorkshire Square

"thou shalt fettle one's velo whilst sipping a good malt and listening to top tunage whilst yon kids are in bed"

All fettling at Radar Towers being done late at night in the kitchen; the radarlings all tucked up in bed; usually Van Morrison on the CD player; and a glass of Talisker to hand

Nice!

Be careful with that workstand clamp, the paint remains a little flexible for a while and so you could mark it even with the gentlest clamp. Get a seatpost in there are clamp on that!

Also mind the water bottle riv-nuts as the blasting and painting can loosen them a bit. Use loads of grease and if the water bottle bolt feels tight don't crank it, take it out and tap the riv nut thread.

It's going to be good, Mark does a great pace paintjob!
