    Agree with all the comments!

    I note the advertiser describes the seller as a lorry driver who's scared of computers called Paul!! Whatever you make of that!!

    Well... each to their own!

    Evidently a patriot. Maybe an Ulsterman... they'e more likely to display their patriotism via the Union Flag than most Brits. Then again, I recall whole streets in my home city of Bristol (mainly in the district of Bedminster), during the Queens Silver Jubilee (1977), which had miles of kerbstones painted red, white & blue, plus lines of bunting in the same.

    Ive just read the description , it quotes " small paint damage on fairing " and "wouldn't take much to touch up "

    best option would be to matt black it with a rattle can all over !!
