Time for the top coat and to refit some of the parts that adorn the radiator panel. The radiator is being completely rebuilt but more on that at a later date.
After the expenditure of some elbow grease rubbing down the Buzzweld RCP (which goes off rock hard) to a good starting point, the top coat was applied with 1.5″ paint brush. This is the only piece that I will paint in this fashion but the finish is pretty good. There’s a few brush marks on the “public” side of the panel but you have to be quite close to see them.
Once the radiator is available, the front panel will be removed to fit this, along with the fan cowl.
