Hi, Jack:

Have you decided on a colour or color yet?
( depending on American or English spelling)

As we are discussing vehicle-hobbies that go at the expense of spudding:
I contacted the Chinese manufacturer of these:

I'm quite satisfied with the 4 stroke engines they make, but a "chopper" style scooter would offer me more style..
Maybe I can finally get something out of owning a business..
They can't be too expensive...

Seems like a fun project.
I got all the tools I need to take off all the unnessecary bits and a fresh spraycan of flat black paint.. :D

Given your big frame, wouldn't it look a little silly?

As to colour, I'm going for something vaguely like this, tan/sand sort of colour:

You left us for that? Hmm needs more epoxy! Just kidding looks great, glad to see that you've kept your word about fixing it up. Although i will be waiting from when you get so bored with it that you turn it into a super jeep :D

Wow that does look really nice. This gives me a very pointless idea of dying my epoxy to different colors just for eye appeal. What did you use as a mold for the epoxy?

In this case, the area where I poured it is recessed so no need for a mould, it's just a question of filling in :)

Eventually I'd like to fit an onboard compressor and something of the sort :D

I doubt it, they aren't too happy about all that oil on the road... I just tell them it's marking its territory :D

Landrover tip: if it stopped leaking, it needs to be topped up ;)
