Well my repair is well underway. Just waiting for the filler undercoat to arrive. Will post pics when done. The spraying will be an issue I think. Not sure if a lacquer is needed ? Anyone know? I have base and top coat at moment.
  Yes I can confirm that you will need lacquer.   Good luck.  :whistle:

As a Lancastrian myself - although moved to Yorkshire baxk in 1969 - my first thought was to try and effect a repair. If I can fix without a massive layout, I will.  Listen for the squeak as I walk.

Not much riding going on so do have some time to tinker.  Thus far I do  have a panel that has gone back together using epoxy, and fibrelass to add strength.  All good practice and a chance to increase my skill range in the workshop.  If it looks crap, afterwards, then I will prise open the wallet and cough up.  Look out fo the moths.

 To be continued....................?

🤬🤬🤬🤬
I checked the cost of RS paint:  70!!!!

So when I have found the right coloured panel for less than 120 I think we know what the answer is.

Thanks

Any half decent spray shop should be able to make you up a colour match,
but don't try a dealership spray shop, go independent.
If you can do the prep work yourself you will save a fair bit,
use 800 grit wet and dry paper and keep it wet.
Who know's how long the lock down will be but the longer it is the more you can practice.
