I'll post a few images and if there is interest i'll post some more. I just finished buffing/polishing,,it's purple!!! These show how easy us painters earn the exorbitant fees we charge, takes but a few minutes.

I usually do captions, i wasn't going to do a social media thread on that bike,,,but here goes.
The torch,,,after stripping parts with chemical stripper or solvents there will be nasty stuff trapped underneath where ever there are double panels or beaded edges. If this hidden junk is not removed it can rear it head later and ruin the job. Heating and setting this crap on fire effectively eliminates it from the parts. This is done before the sandblasting step.
Solder has been ground off from dent pulling adventure, time to 'blast.


sandblasted

2 thick, wet coats of epoxy. Rich with corrosion inhibitors and killer good adhesion to the base plus what goes on top of it (filler) also sticks like mad,,,if it is applied in the right time window.

Rear loop, tailite and sidecovers ready for epoxy.

Cool! I had a purple B50SS once. People would not believe it was a stock color.

I don't bother to talk to the television (often) but that doesn't stop me recording programs to watch ;-)
Take it as a compliment - we're speechless with awe...

Because you get offended when I type In spite of that, I like your work and want to see it. So, silence. Please, carry on.

Some of us learn more with our mouths shut. Carry on, we all (most of us, anyway) appreciate craft.

Windy, sorry.

OK, some of you are willing to type, thank you. Don't worry about pissing me off,i'll gladly respond, i'm not shy.

Know that this is not a DIY series, if you have questions about this work call me, i will do my best to help. My phone info and times to call are on my website warkshop.com.

My purpose in doing this thread stuff is two fold, #1 to show how much work goes into a properly done job and the materials involved to help people understand where the cost comes from. Hopefully save some folk wasted time and money finding out the hard way this ain't easy. Some folks do succeed painting their own bike,,,but sadly many more fail.#2 To try and improve 'hits' on my website. I'm told being social (which i am not naturally,,,bet you guessed!) will aid my website viewership.
