The engine came up pretty well in the photos, not quite as nice in real life. I used a wire brush on electric drill along with a small brass wire brush, then degrease, pressure wash then 400 grit wet and dry. Pressure wash, dry with compressed air, heat gun and paint. Lockdown achievement accomplished 🙂
After much searching with Blue Wing Honda (found import records) and NZTA (couldn’t find it), VTNZ finally found the frame number in the Land Transport computer system. Now I know it’s been previously registered in New Zealand and I will be able to register it again, it’s time to begin.
