Good evening chaps and chapess's,

Managed to do a fair bit over the weekend,
The air cowling has had a second coat of primer on the inside and 2 coats of primer on the outside, next up will be 2 coats of mid-Brunswick green on the outside. The 'Lister' lettering will be gloss red with a gold border.

Meanwhile, the rocker covers have had the paint stripped off them and a polish up, the letters will again be red with a green background, the center band will also be green as will the raised hem around the bottom. the oil filler caps will be black.
In other news, the decompression levers link rod has been wire brushed and has been repainted in matt black. Next up is the exhaust manifold. 8)

Hiya everyone,

It's been a few weeks I know but I've managed to do a bit more to my HA3 restoration.

I've painted the air cowling in Mid-Brunswick green, added red letters and a custom gold border round them. This is now ready to fit back on at some point.

Meanwhile I've primed and painted the oil filler caps in black and have fully painted one of the three rocker covers. just needs a coat of lacquer and it'll be ready to refit.
