I managed to make my own vintage style spark plug lead covers with a cheap and cheerful rope from the local hardware. I also managed to make my own leather washers as these are really hard to find. I made them to help protect the final finishes and reduce vibrations (slightly).
Yesterday I finally got the pin-striping
done. I only need to wait for the enamel to cure for a few days prior to
final clear coat, sanding a buffing.
