    I'll give it my best shot. The tank is sound and the frame should clean up ok and anyway it'll be sprayed as they all were. I've got a pump and the collar is in pretty good nick - thanks @paul m The hood is utter cr@p but all it's I had. It needs either throwing away, replacing or re-enameling!

    Wish me luck!

    Should clean up very nice; that hood looks to be the perfect candidate for re-enameling.

    When I sprayed mine I used halfords enamel spray then fuel resistant laquer, I was pleased with the result
