Ta chaps.

A little more today. Got the tank on and the fuel lines connected. Both fenders are now attached as ia the front wheel. I also got one of those liquid chrome felt pens to try so I have applied it to the front brake lever.

I also got the rear light cluster painted and installed.

Still seems to be lots of bits left on the sprues.

Thanks guys really enjoying this in a masochistic way.

A little while ago someone mentioned a new Liquid Chrome felt pen and suggested it may work well for headlight interiors. Well I went ahead and got one and tried it out on my head light. I think it looks great. Highly recommended.

Simply done with the felt pen over Tamiya primer.

Scottie Thanks mate. I got the pen online through Amazon. It is made by molotow.com and my supplier happened to be from Wales.

Smashing.

AND you will never have to spend 2hrs+ with sponge, bucket, rag, hose & Autosol cleaning it after a ride in the wet.

Great work John looks excellent indeed.Did you use the Tamiya chrome silver marker that you have to shake and push down to work it?.
