Two wheeled stool - Lambretta bitsa

Recommended Posts

Struggling to find time to do much on this, did get the gearchange and throttle supports stripped of all paint today




Also stripped the paint off the back of the horncasing.




All aluminium parts are now ready for paint, hopefully I'll get it all away to a painter in the next week or so. :)

This GP toolbox wasn't in the best condition when I fitted it to my bitsa back in 1990, it had numerous scuffs and scratches - this was why I painted it. This time I thought I'd have a go at restoring it. So far the paint has been removed with a soak in thinners, and I've started to eradicate the sanding marks and scuffs with wet and dry paper. I intend to go through the grades of paper until I can polish it up to a semi gloss finish.




If it all goes horribly wrong, I can always paint it again! :P
