Could you find a better bit of cable?   Could you preserve some of it and wrap with something else for the missing section?  Perhaps that type of coarse woven fabric ribbon I think of as the fastening in PE shorts with a bit of whipping cord at the changes.  Got a haberdashers or a boat chandler for a rummage?

As for "finger tight once cracked" the Flavia fuel filler pipe to tank nut was towards that, and all the more satisfying for its size and the prior quest for a specialist spanner.

Cotton braided battery cable:

I can't really tell the texture you're after from the photos.  The iron's flex provided some inspiration that led to these:

Those might take a fabric paint if not a dye.

It's not THAT hard...

Something on my mind to look for was the type of "fuel hose clamp" on the Flavia.  Into Google Images.  Scroll down and bingo:

"spring hose clamp" gives me:

"mikalor" in ebay takes me to:

Horrible things and a real pain to apply or remove without the correct tool !

I liked them.  All I used was a pair of pliers like these:

Pliers have a habit of slipping on these, you need a pair of pliers with two recesses.

Thanks David, super-sleuth, the only problem is that the cable seems only to be available in black. The original is more 'sack-cloth', so I am going to investigate the rugby shorts waist tie and then sew it into a tube and turn it inside out ..... wish me luck !

This week we have started on the other side, removing the redlead and as much of the filler as possible, so we can see what lies beneath. The front wing was a pleasant surprise. The bottom had been welded/braized but is good and solid. The line had been lost along the sill and I was worried when Dog asked for a bolster chisel ........

Because the metal is so solid, he has been able to work his magic and has remade the line without the need for thick filler, just a skim to make it smooth. The rest of the wing is excellent, a couple of small dings to knock out and the old repeater hole to weld up. Really happy with the panel fit

Coat of primer next week Huh?

No progress here, just out of hospital after 2 weeks !

Appendicitis/peritonitis/abscess means I will be off my feet for a while yet so I am going to have to find a lightweight fiddly job to do .......

Not allowed to drive the Apriliia either  Sad
