Default winter tidy up

Ok so i`ve had the f4 about 6 months. she`d been put down by the previous owner with a few little things i had her registed been flying around on her since but never really been happy with it`s road rash paint job. i`ve ordered a new fairing kit and started repairing every thing while wainting for them to arrive. i`ll keep posting picks up as she comes together over the next couple weeks.

Great job! It looks nice and clean. Judging from the picture with the tank you have a paint shop or just your own garage?
