another H-4 restoration project


Recommended Posts

This one was a real mess when I started on it. Lots of paint including a gold enamel job done with a brush. This is the best interpretation I could get trying to work through the layers of paint & see what was underneath the mess & on top of the original gold paint job.

Ha! :lol:

 

I usually let things cure out about a month, then hand rub with compound, but not polish afterwards. Dulls it down to look like the old enamel. I do the same with the old vintage Harley frames/chassis parts & it works out well.
