Default GM Fox Question

Hello there,
Our Fox is starting to look a bit ragged around the edges and the time has come for a general spruce up.. When I last painted her about ten years ago I did the hull interior matt white. Is this correct? I have a feeling that it should have been gloss. Also, should the various fasteners that hold the accessories be black phosphate, cadmium/zinc or painted white?
If anybody's got an idea it would be a great help.
All the Best,
Stefano

Stefano:

I suggest that you contact Bruce Parker, of this Forum.

He just rolled out his immaculate machine last week.

Regards

Default Yeah, Kind of....

I mean, I saw the damned thing in this state, way back when...



And then this....




And this....




....and from there, in your garage, sans turret, with some new bits welded on and the hull mounted but much to do!!

It's been a while, Bruce, I'll call ya soon, I want to see this beast before you put it to bed for the winter!
