Paint work on the rear half

As announced in the previous post, I painted the rear half of the body.
I used a light green with pearl effect for the edges, and give the rest of the body a second layer of clear coat.

The front half has to be changed in some points and is therefore not painted yet.
First of all, I have to change slightly the position of the jackshafts under the bench.
Then I can remove the idlers, which actually prevent the chain from rubbing against the bench.
 I have used small idlers from a normal derailleur, 
which can't withstand the forces of the chain for a long time.
These idlers are attached since 100km or a bit longer and ruined now.

To give a better view of the shape of the body, here is a short video:

Almost complete !!!

The front hood is read now.

A windscreen and a soft top will be the next steps.
The body has actually one layer of clear paint, must be sanded and painted again. 
Hundreds of screwheads must be filled and smoothed, then the edge will get a green color.
