I could always polish up all the ally castings as well lol!

(Actually, I have seen these stripped of paint, they don't look bad, but I prefer the thought of some nice fresh Olive Drab matt paint on everything except the head, barrel & exhaust, & possibly the flywheel, which are matt black).

Gotta sort my engine fund out before I can go any further with this one. Although I have been given some more pointers on what to do with the dynamo to see if it will ever give out some power. I will probably do that after I've finished the Tarpen.

Good idea to finish the Tarpen and sell it on then that should free up some of your cash for other things.
