Mate, that is going to look great. A close colour match too. Not bad for FREE!
Like the WI hubs and crank, i think they compliment it nicely.
Green nipples is a nice touch too.
I look forward to seeing it finished.

Recently found the exact same frame at my local tip, nice to see it restored, given me a bit of food for thought.
Looks like you did a decent job on the laquer, the guys who bodged it up sound like cowboys. Looking forward to seeing it completed in due course. :D
