Right this one has been close to 9 months sitting in my shed, so today I decided to get started on it......
I striped the bike leaving the a-head set cups & the bottom bracket then I got out the paint stripper.......
After washing it down & drying it off, I then got out the metal polish.....
I did like the TI finish but there were too many surface rust spots for my liking, so this was the way to go. Already have the stickers from Gil.m so I guess they will be going on next before I think I will have to give it a coat of clear. Not sure whether to do this myself (rattle can) or pay for it to be done by a sprayer......how hard can it be..........!!!!
I now need to compile my parts list (not too long for this one as I am happy with most of the bits, so just cables hangers, gonna lose some of the faded red anno).
The build has defiantly started..............watch this space.
