The frame and tricycle kit was fully restored by myself. The original frame paint should have been used by NASA as heat shielding for shuttle re-entries. It was the toughest paint I ever had the task of stripping, Commercial aircraft paint stripper failed to remove it completely and I had to resort to sandblasting to get it all off.
