It has been painted and I am going to wait a few days for the paint to harden before any more reassembly. What do you think of the color. Leather Brown!

Great color - sets off the brass well. Maybe a deep green or red pinstripe on the flywheel or somewhere?

Pin stripes are difficult with shaky hands. How about lightning bolts? Thats how the seem to come out.

I've used pinstripe tape with good results, easier to adjust position, and it comes in colors. Hobby shops with airplane stuff usually have it, sometimes auto parts places.

It is as close as I could get, Stew.  I think brown is a shade of black, isn't it?
