Free cap painting

The big one! Once again we are at Stourport in June with live bands, catering, an excursion, the AGM etc.....and over 300 Bongos munching grass contentedly on the banks of the River Severn.

I'll give your caps a paint luv, no problem, we'll have to see how it goes with the wiper arms though Jilly as they will take quite a bit longer... :shock:

I'd be interested in mine being "touched up" :shock: Ste. - mine could do with freshening and the wiper arms are a little untidy too....still if your able only to do the caps that would be fine.....as long as your not too busy with others of course..... would you like a donation for the materials/charity or just some consumables in kind....

:lol: No charge Mike, as the title says it's absolutley free. Just a token of goodwill for fellow forum members that are after a cap freshening up session. Not everyone has quality Enamel paint lying around, i have plenty, a set of model brushes, and a practised steady hand. :wink:

I'm intrigued about the consumables though... :-k

Ahh well I was going to bring a few trade workshop consumables with me ...... brake cleaner, copper grease and a few others.... in case you DIY chaps need some..... especially as some things are getting tricky to get......

Is a cap and wiper arm painting "sesh" worth a tin of copper grease? One can never have enough copper grease! [-o<

On the subject Ste... Thanks again for the tips! I'm about half way through my wiper arms at the moment... :mrgreen:

There is a tip to remove stubborn rear wipers without any damage.. :idea: It involves WD40, some mole-grips & a rag!! Show you the technique at the bash.... :arrow:
Cheaper by comparison to a race horse...

AH... Nice one Jamie... Rear wiper removal is often a bit hit and miss at the best of times (Duncan will confirm this) :oops: .....
