I'm a stock kind of guy -- especially with things Italian, as street urchins in Naples likely have more art sense than I  Wink -- but that's nice.

The more I look at it I think that's too much red. Looks like a slut with colored finger nails. Perhaps the spark plug covers will change from red to black. I did this because they had a lot of small holes from little stones flying against them and a lot of red is in my stock - as the most used color on my LeMans.

Too much red??
You've barely dabbed it with the brush!

Swap the bolts around and take another pic. They should be subdued, not highlighted.

I once requested a painter to do the downpipes of the house in a contrasting colour.
His reply. "You want it to look like a Darrell Lea chocolate shop"?

Good tip thanks. Some of the screws though look as if they have been milled.

They look like the MVS screws. Looks like MVS are closed until further notice.
