licensing ,rego on hold black plates all good.

Engine does not idle good, took it to someone to test,air leak somewhere.

3000rpm air leak disappears,spindle on carb possible?, running

lean a little, they adjusted it,drive it good to go,might have take back for

further look at it.

Found these in pick a part rusty.

tyres taken off and dumped.

had some lacquer paint off white lying around.added a

little of yellow to it.dabbed a bit of paint on the rim

where the tyre hides the paint , the colour close to old

colour,as didn't want to paint them pure white.

The wheels rims will get road grime, brake dust over in time.
