Thursday

KYX 959K Now back on the road.

After a complete eradication of rust in all the normal areas a repaint was in order.
The owner preferred the use of brush painting methods, when it came to the "re-spray".
So this was carried out to the owners satisfaction and then taken for an MOT, its first for 10 years and it past the test with no problem and many admiring looks and comments.
You have to agree, it looks stunning.
