I painted the radiator a sort of brass colour. It's a tin of gold spray that was very old and I don't really like it but its all i have to hand. I will paint on lots of patina in the vain hope of improving it.

French polish might do the job of antiquing it, you can always remove it with meths if you don't like the result.

I think it looks appropriate, but that's cos I like the look of used cars!

I painted the bonnet and one of the sides black satin car paint and a sort of turquoise that I mixed using Windsor and newton acrylics. I diluted it and tried it in an air brush hopefully creating a bit of patina.

What friction material have you used in your dampers?

I used some old conveyor belt material that was in the bin. I don't know how effective it is compared to other stuff but does dampen well. It cuts ok with sharp scissors and I have plenty, so if you want some I can mail it to you.

If the conveyor belt doesn't work out, do the same as many of the vintage race cars (and my CK Hartfords) and use oil tempered hardboard, as used to beon the bottom of drawers and back of cupboards. It works perfectly with no snatching as most other materials do.

The paint has been rubbish on the kart. Every time I go nearby it gets rustier. It hasn't even rained.

Thanks Marek, the bike is an old honda cg125 that I converted into a flat tanker, board tracker type pit bike.
