I've turn my attention to the engine. I'm going to respray it. The cowling has been touched up already. I've got the colour matched and have the etch primer and lacquer.
To be straight with everyone I'm going to pay for the paint etc out of our funds that I still have

Thanks Ed, there's not much bare metal so it's easier just to aerosol it
