    Sep 15, 2006, 8:54 AM - ESB repair pics needed #1

    As the title says i am in need of some detailed pics of the repair on the ESB bucket (the one from the top left hand side of the visor). I remember seeing some really good pics of this before but now can't find any

    have tried the search function but can't find what i am looking for.

    BTW please no jokes in relation to my other thread posted today, i am still emotionally hurt by that experience

    I'm trying to find where I put my Ref CD! As soon as I do I'll have a look for you. I thought I had some on my hard drive but must have been mistaken. I can always take some pics of the repair I did on my bucket?

    Thanks Dan. Just a little question (when don't i have one ), what did you use to colour in the crack? Is it just yellow paint?

    I used some yellow and some orange. I applied each with a cocktail stick then smudged it with my finger and a cotton bud. Gives a pretty good effect.

    Also try rubbing some thinner(white spirit) into the paint as well as it strips the colour which I have found to be good for weathering. ONly use a small amount though!
