Not bad so far. Agree another pass would help fill in some of the bubbles/low spots.

Okay, this is looking nicer. Despite the slight off-white colour of the aBS paste, which no amount of sandinng will change, it's very smooth and flush. This is after 3 grades of sandpaper and buffed with a soft cloth.

**EDIT** Site says I'm only allowed to upload 10.24kb ?  Seems strange.

Most upload their photos to an online host then copy the link directly into their posts, allows greater size and amount of photos

Thanks. I used to do it that way with Photobucket but it's not an option for me now. I'll think of another way. Cheers!

Ok, no pics on the dremel polishing, s there's very little to see, but it is a bit glossier.

I've painted the blue stripe today - The blue is a little lighter than these pics show. Whereas in the past, I used liquid latex to mask off the scratches, I thought I'd do it manually this time and scrape off the paint where it seems needed.  The lightest pic was taken with added exposure to try and show the true colour of the blue. I'd say it almost exactly matches the tube stripes.

That's a nice Blue!

I did the same for scratches. I used a cut off pc. of coverstrip. The corner worked great and took paint off nicely.

I took a quite blunt knife ot the blue stripe, carefully adding random scratches to it. I looked at a number of different TKC lids, and wanted to go quite subtle than some I've seen, but more than a minimally weathered look. I'm quite happy with this at this degree of scratching.

ALso painted the rear traps grey, with only the vent lines to go on there to complete the painted detailing.
