CarNoob - Congratulations on getting your car painted, the white looks good.

I like the section you added under the number plate, in fact, the whole back end of your car looks very "clean".

Good luck, Paul.

Did it go without a hitch?
Painting went ok except for the test area I used a sample can on, so test some spray on some areas first. A friend did a complete re spray on his Lamberetta said it looked fantastic because of all the prep. came back 2 hours later the whole bike had a crackle finish . If anyone else is painting prep then prep again then when ready once more for good measure. Add extra thinners to the final coat. I used a 2 for the high build and1.4 nozzle for the finish next time final coat would be with 1.8 nozzle

Car now has lights. had same problem as you Paul, holes for indicator screws too close to the centre hole. Slipped with drill and chipped paint just above the light, small job but annoying.

Sorry to hear you also had indicator fixing problems.

But getting the headlights fitted really does make a big difference.

Good luck, Paul.

Nice work on the badge.

Is it to the same scale as your cardboard mock up?

Thumbs up

Yes size is about the same. Made a rubber mould today. I am going to cast in a two part resin plastic that is very strong, I may make another in aluminum. But first need to make a small foundry.

Why dont you buy some aluminium powder to go in the resin that way if buffs up and looks very metallic

Looking very good.

Is there much left to do before you can take it for an MOT?

Good luck, Paul.
