matt laquer on it for now, but i have clear por 15 for future use, just laquer wont do it, the rust is forming thin "snakes" on the body…

por 15 + laquer (uv-protection) is probably the way to do it properly

Looks awesome mate. I used to bare metal my bmx frames but even with laquer they rusted. Interested to know how the por15 works out.

Cheers

on the road! just been out for the first time :P

feels very light, and nippy to drive, no torque steer.

a bit lumpy on the low revs, 3000-7000ish it was flying, sounds just like a bike

VERY pleased with it, and a big thanks to everyone in here, without your help no 16v mini for me, thats for sure

Congratulations on the beer drinking!

Oh and well done on getting the motor fired up for the first time.

I'm not sure which is the greater achievement
