Crikey its been a while since last progress report....
Well then, where were we?
Paint. Wasn't happy with it. I think the colour was a little out and there were a few small marks in the paint that I couldn't live with. So I pulled it apart and stripped it, re-mixed the paint and started again. I spent a little more time prepping this time and got it perfect before laying on the paint. Result- spot on! Colour looks much better (slightly darker), finish is flawless and it has a much better shine this time.
So I'm back where I was last time I posted but happier with the result.
I managed to find some Grab On grips for it, some NOS Mt Zefal toeclips, matching flouro straps (Tioga) and a seat binder so as soon as I find the cable guides and a set of decals its finished. Been a bit of a saga this one but soooo pleased with the result.
I'm sorry for the crap pics- camera phone, indoors etc. but as soon as the weather perks up she'll be outside for some better shots.
