I've had a Bell Fruit bandit in the state of restoration now for over 10 years now, well really I've only restored it for a couple of months then abandoned it under cover for the rest of that time in shock until now. Firstly I bought it for £30 then took the chrome to near Bristol for rechroming only to find when I collected it, it cost a staggering £450, then I had the body stove enamelled which only cost £70 back then but they lost the back door and the locks, great stuff, then the graphics on the glass decided to start coming off, at this point I was so p'd off with it I just wrapped it up and left it. Two house moves and 2 old cars later I have now found this forum so I'm asking for some inexpensive help.
The problem I have is the paintwork detail on the back of the glass is flaking off.
1/ How can I prevent it all flaking off (it does seem to have a light film of oil on it, the painted side), if I touch it, it will fall off.
2/ If I decide to hand paint the missing flaked off bits even though I'm not sure it is possible, what paint do I use?
3/ Does anyone do any reproduction graphics / decals or can I get them remade and where?
Thanks in advance for what is probably the most expensive Bell Fruit ever made.
