Stripping Progress

Well, this weekend I have been stripping all the paint off the frame. Mainly using a wire brush attachment on the drill but for all the awkward areas and there were plenty) it was good old Wet or Dry or Emery paper and elbow grease.

I’ve posted some photos of the stripped frame in the photos section.

Also I received my seat back which has been recovered by my very talented friend Steven – you could easily be fooled into thinking it’s NOS šŸ™‚

I will take photos of the seat and some of the bits I’ve ‘Oven Prided’ – there’s a lot of bling around now.

I reversed the decision to change the original colour and the paint should arrive this week – it’s Vauxhall Rainbow Blue or as I call it Raleigh chopper Purple !!Image
