Well I've been still busy straightening out the tinware and got some red paint on some parts so it is progressing slowly. Had the tyres fitted back on the rims and when I picked them up the fitter told me before I saw it that he scratched the paint on the backside of the naive plate. I thanked him for his honesty but when I looked it was not bad at all and I have already got it sorted for a quick touch up next time I have the spray gun out, hopefully tomorrow. The slight scratches are up against the axle flange anyway and is why I'm not screaming or worse.
The last 'spray day ' went well but 2 items did not meet the standards I was looking for so they have been rubbed back and ready for another go at them These are the side covers for the engine and I got 2 tiny spots of rejection and the finish was a not good enough for what I want. I have some engine parts back in place like the starter motor, radiator cooling system is complete, distributor and carby are on. I also have the hand clutch bolted back into place and the locking device is sitting in place ready to be bolted to the guard when it is ready to go back on.

After seeing what I have done with these badges I am certain that no one will ask me to do any for them. Having a steady hand OR the gift to do this sort of shit avoids me, but it is what it is and is how it is going to stay. At least at the end of the project I can say "I did the bloody lot" and it will show!    :o ::)

I am suffering with " foot in mouth" disease.
I can't leave it as is so I have touched it up with some yellow and will do the smallest touch up on the red in a couple of days.
I can be my own worse enemy at times.

Hi Cobba,

I?ve seen a hell of a lot worse.......

It will be fine , if anyone picks - just ask them where their restored tractor is and go pick the guts out of it !!!!.

Having done similar things on badges it is not as easy as it would appear.........

Cheers Justin

Hi Justin, thanks for the vote of support. Today's effort to tidy it up more certainly inproved the look and there are now 2 letters that would benefit from a bit of red on them so will do that over the weekend maybe.

Had another 'spray day' today and it was just that.
It had a gastric attack and got the runs in a couple of palces so I will have to see how bad it is tomorrow and take the appropriate action.
