    Hi,

    Not sure if this qualifies as a fettle, or just a good cleanup, but I have spent a few hour on it anyway. Still waiting for some parts, but I can't see why this wouldn't run sometimes in the furure. I like the design of the R46 and when I got hold of one I just had to start (som might say backwards :content:). A good cleanup, got hold of a controlknob, box in the tank, and finished of with some more cleaning and a paintjob.

    Unfortunately heatresistantpaint is not common in Norway so had to use ordinary paint. Also dicovered a few dents in the tank, but this beeing my first run on a "complete makeover" I'm happy for now. And sure looking forward to get this one on fire :content:
