Always looks good with some new paint

and the masking tape removed

I rotated it around on the stand so everything got a good coat

Water pump, fan, governor, and mag drive in place

We resurfaced the manifold so it is good and flat

Flywheel Fire marked with white and TDC black

Test fit of the radiator and grill screen

Nice contrast with the black fins

Looks nice from the front anyway

It started up with the hand crank quite nicely

Ready for the show and the tribute to Gilbert Vust we're planning

Too bad it has to all come apart after the show to finish the restoration.
