Hope you dont mind, but I thought I would show you my 1966 Triumph Tenerife restoration..
Started off as above pictures a few days back, got to the stage of sanding down all the frame and primed it ready for respray
Front bit sprayed, just need to wait a day or 2 now for it to harden off, before I can mask it and spray the rest (different colour)
Mudguards are in a worse state than I first thought. so will have to make a jig/mould so i can panel beat them out
Next few days jobs are to clean up the chrome works..... so this is where I am from todays date... hoping to have it all done by the end of next week....
Nice wee bike, should look great when finished
Wife as just gone out, so I can sneak some bits into the dishwasher.....
Tread carefully Ozzie because if it was my most beloved and she ever found out, my gaud I would be lynched!! Nice work by the way.
nice, similar to my mums Triumph 'Palm Beach'
Did you use a spray gun or rattle can?
Use Spraymax 2k lacquer to finish. Its two pack in a can, fantastic stuff. Pricy, but much cheaper than paying someone else to domit.
Used a rattle can on the primer and front bit, might use the sprayer on the main bit.
Got a Palm Beach to restore after this one.
