Hi Richard - I know about rubber and solvent based paints - I never mix them.  Is the Halfords primer solvent based? 
I have put clear flat acrylic paint on rubber 'tires' with no issues, however, 'tyres' I don't know about  ;D.

krow113 - I forgot about sanding the tires.  I used to do that on all my model car tires.  I made some mandrels to turn them on the lathe or drill while sanding.   May do that if there is some issue with acrylic paint.

Tires/Tyres

Sometimes, you colonials use forms of English we grew out of centuries ago. Pants, for instance. And sometimes you got lazy and chose phonetic spelling instead

I can't help it if you mangle our language...

 ;D

I was surprised by the nitrile 'O' rings behaviour/behavior. I thought they would be OK

Well, we have to do things our way.  You can always tell an American, but you can't tell him much.  ;)

Nose panels and Lozenge are looking great! I don't know about tyres but I am not tired of seeing your outstanding progress  ::)
