01/05/17. May Day

So it’s the May Bank Holiday (National holiday here in the UK), and despite the threat of rain, it actually stayed dry long enough for me to get some painting done. I had a go at the flywheel with an 80 grit flap disc in the grinder, to remove as much of the old paint as I could. The flywheel then had a coat of red oxide primer before getting onto applying some enamel paint today.

It was the same process as before when applying the enamel paint. 90% Mid Brunswick Green to 10% thinners, to make it a little easier to apply. I had the crankshaft area on the engine that needed painting and one or two other places that needed touching up

Both the flywheel and the crankshaft housing will need another coat of green, but I’ll have to give this a couple of days to dry first.
