My Grandfather used to paint everything wasn't in the house and made of metal, silver, perhaps I now know why!

Hi Guys
Thanks for the feed back....I thought I was all alone here :oops:
The silver is Simonised alloy wheel silver spray rattle can
which I got in Halfords.
I am happy with the resuts.

I have started to pit together the running gear and I will get some more photos here soon.
