Great update! What are you gonna do with the engine's exterior? New pollish?

Thanks. Well, depends on how it looks when I´ve finnish washing all the dirt off. Originally the block has been painted grey, but to repaint that, the engine would have to be split and I´m not gonna do that. The engine covers was originally polished, but again, depends on how they end up. I do think the cylinder head cover did get quite alright, after all, it´s not a new bike and it won´t end up 100% original anyway, so if I do get a reasonable result, I´ll let it be with that. But washing the engine has been paused for a while, as I had other things to do (e.g. a meeting on Gotland  ;D ), and the frame was at the painter...
