Have painted over the patch and it took well. Took the tank to the paint shop and it's off to be colour matched, so work will start Monday. It goes off rock hard, fingers crossed. Thank you everyone.

Fearie,

I seems like you are using the picture from Baxter Cycle, why aren't you buying it from them?

I should think so too! £70 in 1970 was about four weeks wages, so maybe £1500 now.

I never thought of that. I remember I thought it a good deal at the time, every single piece of brightwork including complete exhaust and rims. Must have been flush ant the time.

Neil, would that have been 'Chrome-Plating' of The Alpha Centre, Armstrong Way, Yate? Or there's Castle Chrome Plating in Dudley, W Midlands.
I just dug through my box of receipts from the build. I found the name ACF Howell at Croft Street Walsall WS2 8JR.Phone 01922 649992. They were very good for me. As well as the petrol tank they did a good job on the kick and gear levers. They specialise in vehicle work.

Sad to hear London Chroming is no more. They triple plated all the bright work on my C11 in 1970, £70 the lot. It's still brilliant today.

I should think so too! £70 in 1970 was about four weeks wages, so maybe £1500 now.

You can if the paint hasn't started to go off yet. I've found that once you've opened the tin and the paint has been exposed to the atmosphere it isn't long until it goes off.

There are a lot of valuable old bits written off by a hamfist with a skurfing bob. My old man sent the knock on hubs from an old Riley 9 we were restoring to a local plater and they came back with all the instructions and logos polished off. The rusted again in a heatbeat too. Didn't use enough nickle. A good plater is a very important find in this business.
