I got the four coats of red followed by fours coats of lacquer sprayed on today. I've got to work quickly with the parts painting and make the most of any warm weather because I'm working in an unheated corrugated steel garage. Although I'm not aiming for a top finish, I want to avoid any bloom in the paint. Fortunately, my 'better half' is very understanding so I was able to bring the frame into the kitchen to harden off
(It's only occasionally that I have to remind her that I built her Honda 400/4 in the front room of our last house. It became quite a talking point with our friend and neighbours in the three years it was there)
Not the 'standard' red, but a nice shade nontheless - Honda Rio Red (Paint Code R63).
