Been to see the painter and he has kindly painted over most of the front wing Tiger badge, 260 motif and final wing finisher holes on both sides, does anyway have a drawing or template of where they should go?

cheers
Brad

Gun very similar to the sealey one I have used for years.i always used to drill extra drain holes.3 in the cills,1 at bottom of front wing and 1 in the front end of the rear wing.just so that any water that gets in there can drain out.i also used to inject wax oil thro these holes.
