I've put a little bit of sneaky scuff tape on it, you wouldn't know unless you looked closely. Inevitably it's going to get scratched up but at least it'll protect the areas which will get major scuffage.

I have a fair bit of tape left if you want it, Mike?

The P.2 is finally looking like a bike. I think Christine has decided its hers before I've even finished it...
