Managed to get a spare crown,the one al sold me has a bolt welded into it :lol: so the chap i got the frame from had an old battered one that had seen better days,took the needle files to it and blended all the superficial scars out then dipped it into the caustic..

Image

still 1 big dig in it which i managed to fettle out though and then took the scotchbrite pads and polishing block to it...

Image

finally a good going over with some brasso and buffed..

Image

Ready to send to JBD now for new elastomers and decals
