A nice job but why did you paint side toolbox & battery covers white?

No problem but I though laurpat was going to do it as original with new decals. I must admit that they do look a bit odd & as the originals are self colour I wonder if the paint will adhere to the plastic. May flake off after a bit.

John,

I have to agree with you - I'm on the fence witht he white - I've a second set in the orginal colour so I think they'll be the prefered. Over this side of the water it's something that happens to all the honda cubs - Thought I'd give it a try - I've used plastic flex primer so it should hold for a bit - P

Great job, but can I ask how did you pull apart the black plastic frame off the dash clock? I've tried to remove my one to get at the fuel gauge but it is glued solid.

Cheers, Frank.

I was lucky enough - the cover came of easy enough.

I used a little T-cut to clean it up
