    Unusual to see another Z in these parts, he let me in to the Shell garage in Horsforth at midday, friendly wave to each other, nice to see another one 😁
  4. Excellent news, it would be rude not to upgrade 😁
  5. I hope it turns out to be a simple fix and doesn`t scupper your CAT driver training day.
  6. Happy birthday Chubbs, now so celebrating and get those side repeaters sorted 😂
  7. Admiral are pretty good, I`ve had my Z insured with them since I bought it, cheaper than anyone else but living in Leeds it`s still £600 per year.
  8. Halfords do a grey etching primer which is what I used, where I went wrong was testing out the pearlescent paint and hen over spraying with the white primer and it reacted, which I didn`t expect as they supposed to be compatible but only with the primer first as it happens. You`ll have loads of fun with the masking due to the shape of the Z and the lens, it`s hard to find the definitive line between the two as they`re both a black glossy finish, the plus side is that it won`t show up as much as the white if it isn`t quite right. I used Tamiya masking tape which is designed to curve
  9. If you're going to paint them give me a shout, I'll give you a few tips so you won't make the same mistakes as I did.
  10. Yeah, that's the look I was aiming for, I prised the lenses from the body so I could retain the black ring around the edge. Thanks for the feedback, after the things that went wrong, I'm glad they turned out ok 🙂
  11. No but the ring could have been as a back up plan 😂
  12. My partner wasn't impressed 😂
  13. I broke my own internet shopping rules and paid the price 😂
  14. So I found some nice tyre valve stem caps online, some in the USA but wouldn't post to the UK so I bought some from China. I watched the tracking and thought at least they're coming, tracing number included etc and finally delivers today. The first photo is what I ordered, the second photo is what I got 😂
  15. Thank you Neil, they`re not perfect but I`m happy with them.
  16. Final flatting done, just one area where there is a mark that needs touching up, quite happy with it though given the intricacies of the Z. Mask it again and pearlescent paint tomorrow then fingers crossed I can get them fitted on Friday.
  17. I dropped the Z in for a service today, only a minor one S/P1 whatever it is these days, fresh fully synthetic oil ready for 15th May, though it was overdue by 5 months 🤐 I blame the lockdown 😂 I`ve also given the side repeaters a final coat of white primer ready for flatting and pearlescent lacquer tomorrow.
