Default Painted!

Spent a few hours yesterday getting a coat of etch primer on the bare steel:









I used Tractol 729 industrial etch primer in grey - It went on quite well by brush and dried very quickly despite the ~10 degree temperature.

Have a few bits to touch up that I missed, but reasonably happy with it as a layer to stop the thing rusting.

Where in Kent are you eddy? I'm over in rochester and there is a really good local club called southern kitcar club (skcc). If you need a hand with anything let me know. My roadster has been on the road for a few years now so I have ironed out most of the floors

I based in Birchington, near Margate. I work just down the a228 from you in West Malling though.

I'll check out the SKCC website, thanks.

Thanks for the offer of help - Much appreciated

Few bits arrived from Phil during the week - He is sending bits through as they're ready:



Got a coat of anti rust primer on the drums:



Followed by the first top coat:



Then I started looking at the manifold I need to make for the bike carbs:



Not sure if I should re-space the carbs or just go with tubes at an angle - Any opinions?

The tubes in the pic are from some scrap I had lying around - They match the ID of the carb outlet perfectly, but are thin so there is a bit of a gap between the silicone tube. Will this be ok (or even helpful in getting the angles to work) or do I need some thicker tube?

Cheers
