Spent most of this morning polishing the wheels for this took bloody ages :roll: there's something quite theraputic about cleaning frames though and I could happily do it all day :)

Although I was quite chuffed with the condition of this, there were lots of grey lines that looked like scratches that I didn't think would come off :? but its come up almost ( insert that word thats banned here ) :wink: :lol:

Just got to clean all the other bits now, better find the Autosol I guess :?

Actually, I felt at the time that it was a testament to how well you had kept it, and in particular what a nice original example it was, that it sold so well for you. I'm not at all surprised that it has come up looking so nice.
