We Might As Well Make It Look Smart Too.

(Retrospective post for 5th November 2016)

By the end of October Dave Ross had largely finished the rebuild of Flamingo's Lister HA2 engine.

We had agreed with him that as we had had so much done to it, it would be a great shame not to give it a proper coat of paint to smarten it up a bit.

Apparently the "Lister Green" that so many of these engines sport was not the usual original cover for those delivered as marine engines.  Even the broadly silver colour it had been was not strictly correct, although the engine is believed to have always been a marine one.

However we decided we like green, and that so many now are, we weren't going to get fanatical about what is correct.

Here are some pictures taken by Dave on his phone that show the transformation from the previous multi-coloured mess.
