    What happened there? My one won't idle and just stalls after a minute. Planning to do a service once the spark plug tool comes, none of my spark plug tools fitted. Might have to look at the fuel filter. Rear wheel isn't spinning freely as well sigh..

      I think it is just 25 years worth of rust from the tank that accumulates there under the pump strainer.
      As for your idle issue what sort of service history does it have?

        Rear brake master assembly mounted back up. Thanks to Gamma for the perch and lever that I still owe a 6 pack for.
        Before.

          Last service was 2 years ago and stored away.

            After 2 years it will be due for belts and check the rocker arm surface as well. Fuel filter is a good idea and check throttle bodies, lines, fittings. I don't hold a lot of faith in the plastic quick connections after 20 years. Here are the stainless ones I replaced with. Same manufacturer by the look of it too.

              Have had a chance to start on the panels this week. I am by no means a paint and panel guy this is my first foray into this area. I have a mix of carbon Kevlar, plastic and a dent in the metal tank.
              The plan is to use fibreglass reinforced bog for the carbon bits, and compatible big for the plastics and the tank. That's the plan any way.
              this is the worst damage in front of the rear brake lever.

                First thing I thought would be a good idea is to give them a good scrub and degrease.
                Then hang out to dry.

ID:	7115577 so the first job is some plastic welding.

                  Before repairing the seat unit I thought I would practice on something else. So I took to a brush handle with a hammer and the repair was surprisingly strong.

The two shorter ends went in well but the longer bridging section was hard to get enough heat into so I couldn't get it right down into the plastic, but it is about half way in.

The most effective technique was just to plunge it in about half to three quarters in and repeat a couple of mm along.

                  Next was the top side, this is not visible but I still want to get it as nice as possible. Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_20200220_141135.jpg Views:	0 Size:	672.1 KB ID:	7115689

                    After some plastic bog and sanding I'll call it done.

                      I spent another day just filling and sanding small scratches and chips.
                      Here are just a few.

ID:	7115697 Had a few goes at getting the larger areas done. Once again this is all new to me and I found the fibreglass reinforced bog a pain to lay down and sand.
                      However the plastic bog was a breeze to work with.

                          It's a repco branded multi purpose that is good for "most plastics".

                            To break the monotony of sanding, filling then repeat I thought I would start to knock up the spray booth.
                            I have a 5.5 X 5.5 shed that I try to keep everything off the floor.
                            The plan is to create a ventilated habitat within the space.
                            So I cobbled together a light frame from excess fencing materials and got some 100 micron plastic.
                            Shed space.

                              The duct is put through the top windows and connected to the fans outside.

                                done something very similar before with 25x25 tubing. put brown paper on floor and wet it before painting - catches all the dust
