Since I had the Speed Triple I've had a tin of Massey Ferguson Stoneleigh grey paint in the cupboard. The Trumpet was going to be painted in it, but I changed my mind and so the tin has stayed in the back of the cupboard since. It came out recently to paint my cider press frame, and has sat on the bench taunting me since.
It was no good, I wanted to see how it would look.
I decided to brush it on and then give it a bloody good cut and buff once the paint has cured.
