Spiro, I think you will need to upload it to youtube and then embed it here.

Working out how to embed it here is above my pay grade.... I just post a link.

So what am I going to do with this lol

Well, nothing sinister at all really. I've had a real problem matching the paint on the Commando outboard. Approx eighty years of exposure to the elements affected the original paint/color so much it appeared brown, green or grey depending on the light that hit it. As I wanted to maintain its military heritage, I bought the shell case at an Army disposal store simply to match the color. Not original to the outboard I know, but still original military if you know what I mean.

It'll be back together within the next couple of weeks. Happy days 8)

G'day all, just a quick update.

Tank, Flywheel and Tiller/Throttle are all done but are yet to be fitted.

Excuse the picture quality.
