I can recommend Roger’s Cellulose glass lacquer, which he used on my 1938 Flyer cylinder block. It looks good. I remember vaguely (it is very hot in Oslo today – 30 degrees C) that Scott had the cylinder blocks polished and nickeled (matt, soft nickel polished) before the paint was put on. I may remember wrongly, but it would have been a good idea to avoid corrosion and an ideal background for the glass lacquer. Please correct me if I am wrong – I may have dreamt it!
