The saga of my FJ refurb has reached the first milestone with the painting of the motor and upper frame virtually complete.
I have yet to decide what to do with the peely-wally rocker cover. I will probably go for a more attractive finish on it and the clutch cover – perhaps some type of plating to catch the eye —
I have brush-painted the motor with heat resistant Satin Black High Temperature paint from Halfords and it appears to have stuck – so far —
For the frame I opted to use an aerosol can of Hammerite which should do the trick —
But time will tell and while I allow both lots of paint time to cure I will give the FJ a rest and head for the MoT Test Station on the Tenere tomorrow —
I checked the Ten out today and all she needed was a few psi in the tyres and she is ready to go.
Let’s hope the sun continues to shine on the righteous 🙂
