Plenty of paint stripper was required to get the frame back to bare metal. I then smartened it up by sand blasting.
A little bit body filler here and there to get rid of the water bottle and badge holes etc, and its ready for the paint.
Popped to the local paint supplier to check out some samples, and opted for Alfa Romeo Nero Black which is a nice rich metallic with silvery / gold metal fleck.
Paint applied to the tank, quite a few coats of clear lacquer to add depth. Thanks to my Dad for the cracking spray job, great end result, well pleased.
Engine mounts next, and I’ve got to sit and design the art work / pin striping for the engine cover.
Pressed in the bottom bracket and head set cups, and I’m almost ready to start assembling.
