touching up silver bikes
« on: 12 October 2017, 03:36:45 PM »
well after fibreglassing the hole in my tail and the grabrail holes i obviously needed to paint it
needed it in a rush today so shot down to halfords to see what was close
it turns out ford moondust silver isnt a bad match
havent clearcoated it yet but it will do me and looks better than primer over filler
riding this that and the other
modifing everything...

Watched this video of yours on youtube. Look forward to seeing the finished item.

Had a Rack on mine, which has been removed. The 4 holes I "plugged" with black rubber grommets.
Looks flush, yet your work here eliminating them completely should look fantastic once finished (plus repairing that little hole at the back).  :thumbup

Going around touching up bikes is a bit unfair seen as the bike can't put a complaint in

Those are my principles...if you don't like them I have others.

When you are on Punks home page at the top of the page you should see the word "Videos" , just click on that and you should get a dropdown menu listing all his videos.

If you’re doing this sort of thing Jimmy Saville is the least of your worries!
