So it took me 45 minuets to the get the stickers off one side and the head tube.

Then polished it for 30 mins with Silvo and a washing up sponge.

Needs a lot more work, unsure about where the stickers used to be as it seems where they were lackered it's leaving an outline. Hopefully new decals from Gil will sort that out.

Don't think the Silvo is going to get all the scratches out so I might need some fine wet and dry paper?
