    You'll simply have to tell your boss that the HC must be available for inspection by the queen of Bunga.y when she arrives. I'll bring him a bag of Bunga.y rusks as a pressie.

    the whole covers had that problem,not only the tops.that the tops didn't painted yet ,is because i can hold them while painting them.
    so tomorrow the it's dry,i can hold it at the body ,and paint the top.
    i have to make the mudflaps hanging right,still some white paint on the cab,so minor things,but if it rains or i got a heavy container next weekend,it issn't a big problem.

    yes,dooing my best Ivy,just 1 weekend,just 1,then it's over for the show.
    boy what will i be happy then.

    Those nuts in #512.2 are dirty. Yes, I know they'll have their covers on but you'll KNOW that Ivy has seen them .
    But seriously, it's a shame about the nut covers, first with the spray paint not holding, then the silicon tops not taking the paint properly. It must have been really tedious doing so many covers with the brush, Thijs. Why didn't you paint the tops at the same time as the body of the nuts, with the paint brush?
    I hope there is nothing left to do after the covers are on. I can't see that there is, everything looks so fresh and clean and just look at the mirror finish of the metal surround where the nuts are in #515
    It's all really first rate, isn't it?

    60 bleu nuts covers.

    i thought to spray paint them.so spray them in plastic primer after we clean them with thinner.
    Wesley would spray them bleu,while i was bringen the truck back.
    when i return he stopped because of the paint was ''walking ''away.
    i try it too,the same result.
    so we had to paint them with a brush,60 in total.
    this week we/i have to paint the six corned top and spray the with varnish.



    as you can see ,the top are not wel covered with paint.
    i had this problem sometimes with modelbuilding,on silicon this spray paint wont stick properly,
    so these plastic covers are probally silicon covers.

    done,the only thins missing here are the nuts covers.



    i even sanded the ringbrackett that was rusty,primer it paint it silver and spay it in clear varnish,to get the same result as the rims.
    the brackett is within the red line.

    i did not much,just the tank bracketts sanded and put it in the primer aswel the chrome rings,.
    the guy which painted the wheels came for a talk,so that cost me a hour too.
    so tomorrow when it's dry i painted it bleu.

    that the truck is still on his parkingplace in Giessen,and that i'm not in the mood for picking it up ,so that i can go further with it.
