I cut out the blackout guard for the front light and cleaned up the bezel and glued the chain guards to the engine cover but when fitted its way out so I had to cut it off and remount it.
Also you can see in the photo how far out the front fork spring is :think:

That front spring has a definite wobble! Can you correct it!

I've had a quick look at other builds online and most have a slight alignment issue, I checked the instructions and all looks correct. I did look at extending the top post somehow but decided to see how it goes when everything goes together :pray:

Wheels, tank and a few other parts have had a coat of flat black and the frame has been primed and sprayed in Tamiya black, needs a clear coat. The engine has been started but needs a lot more work. I tried AK true metal aluminium, it works really well with a brush and buffs up nice but its like working with eye shadow :shifty: not that I use eye shadow...work in slow :) progress
