Mmm, seems liked you’ve got it sorted. How do you fancy doing my belly pan for me, whilst you’ve got the gun out :lol


Gun? Rattle can more like.
Plenty of good finishes have been achieved using cans. Like most things, it's all down to the boring bit.....preparation. At least you've got some heat, which is key. I suppose I could leave my bellypan until summer and rattle can it, as finding a reliable sprayer who'll take on a small job, is quite difficult in my neck of the woods.


And tomorrow's mission is - empty the garage, re-carpet with one piece (instead of many pieces and lots of bodge tape), fix the main bench, refill the garage and continue.............
I've gotten the rack and rear box metalwork all sprayed, new rubber bungs ordered and the paint I ordered for the frame is a cracking match.

It's nice to get the garage all squared away neat and tidy. That doesn't happen often for me as I'm too much of a hoarder. My project has hit the buffers, waiting for a tool to remove the clutch cover bearing which needs to be removed prior to powder coating. The footrest hangers will be a bit of a gamble getting powder coated, due to the rubber bushes that might survive the oven heat. The firm I'm using have done them before and got away with it. Beginning to wish I hadn't started. :'( :'( :lol

So the blind bearing tool turned up. Heated up the clutch cover, gave it a go, and out came the bearing ,minus the outer roller cage. Deep joy. An hour with the Dremel finally got it out. Could have achieved that without the expense of the tool :wall . In the hands of the powder coater now, new bearing and seal ordered. Not cheap. Going to order the t-shirt tomorrow :lol

It’s amazing the amount of perfectly good riding kit that’s accumulated over the years between me and my mrs. , that seems to have shrunk in the wardrobe. Obviously should have got more upmarket wardrobes :lol

Haha tell me about it. We found two helmets in the storage unit the other day, been in there at least 6 years, never going to wear them again and one of them had her first pair of gloves in from 1987!


Gone now........ :lol :lol :lol
