    Set to with a dash cleaner on all the rubber bits.A bit of silver Hammerite smooth here and there with a nice long cheap artists brush and also a wee bit of black for the pulleys and thats it.











    The eagle eyed will have spotted that this is a dual-fuel car ! Autogas conversion from new. Runs like a dream with economy of a diesel !
