Finishing the fan blades and fuel tank straps

Finishing work continues. First come the magnesium blades for the radiator fans. Before starting they were pretty ugly looking but some walnut blasting and powdercoat made them better than new.

Next came the fuel straps. These were a challenge because the ends are plated but the straps go black. The soloution was to zinc plate the entire strap, mask off the ends, sandblast and then powdercoat. Yes this is an insane amount of work for parts that are bearly visible but then again no one ever said we were sane.
