often wondered if you picked up the Dunkley from Jean , you never said  ;) screen surround looks excellent
I did thanks Richard though it turned out not to be a Dunkley but a Mercury Hermes, not so interesting but very rare all the same. The appeal of a Dunkley would have been the incredibly rare own four stroke motor. Yours and Jeans efforts to retrieve it for me were much appreciated all the same.

My smug feeling was soon overturned this morning when I found flakes of primer coming off in my hands! Apparently the panel wipe I had used on the bare metal is meant to be left for at least 30 minutes before painting. Of course I'm always in a hurry and left it about five! Result is the primer pops.  Spent this morning rubbing it all off again and this time used no chemical wipe down, just a scratch up with some emery and this time used an etch primer. Wont be making that mistake again.

Perhaps you shouldn't have bought the wipes off that " tacky " website  ;D

Didnt buy any wipes, it was a 5 litre can of the fluid from Battlesbridge autojumble. The product is fine, its just the twit using it! ;D  Still, the frame support pillars were successfully painted today in 2k Fiat monza rossa. Same colour as my Motobi Catria seen hear. My favorite shade of red.

screen pillars and frame now painted. Used 1k acrylic. Now I'm going to leave it for at least two weeks to gas off and harden before fitting it.
