Great! Itís not the money, itís getting the finish you are happy with, but for only £12 thatís a result!

Good painting. How much time did you spend?

That is looking very lovely, I've always liked the look of the Pantah derived 600 and 750 motors- much nicer looking than the later 620/800's in my opinion.

Yes. Iíd say over 98% of the time was prep, cleaning and masking.

The silver is Engine enamel and the grey/green is regular paint. It wonít last as long as the enamel but I wanted the colour match..... and they just pop off anyway so can be easily redone

You may want to fit the rear header too to help keep your new paint looking smart.
