I'll certainly do this but also considering doing some other bits, so am off to Jawel Paints in Dudley first thing tomorrow, as I finished off the cans I had. :-)

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Looks good, just needs the black section under oil filler cap painting to finish the job off IMHO. :)

That's a nice refresh, plastics can get to look very drab with age.

Thanks for the positive feedback. I did consider painting the plastic cover that the oil cap sits on top of but I thought I needed to leave something original :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :gmc:

Looks great.

Will the paint take to the plastic? you see so many bumpers with peeling paint.

Cheers
