Decals have been ordered and this evening have applied them and the restoration is finished. i realise that in a matter of days from posting this that it looks a quick job,but in reality it has taken me 2 months in total.

I have forgot to mention that this machine was first made in 1957 and led the way for hayter and others to have a go at rotary production
