    the brace it had on it was the original, and the CC brace came without hardware of any type. Oh, the woman and the fiance are the same person; unfortunately she doesn't prescribe to the California "open" relationship lifestyle

    My rims where tarnished enough that even the front spoked where rusted...thoiught they were stainless...lot's of different sized wire wheels on the hub and steel wool on the spokes, and the Flitz polisher/polish on the rims finally got them to an acceptable cleanliness...but it tok a full Saturday to do it.

    I have both fenders with the CC brace also. Be careful installing the brace as you can pinch/rip the fork gaiters (not much clearance)...I did.
    Best to install it with the gaiters pulled up I suspect.
    FYI there are 2 CC brace styles. One for the high fender and one for the low fender. The later has 8 holes. 4 for mounting to the forks and 4 taped holes for the fender mounting.

    those do look nice... anybody familiar with the cloth you can buy that has some sort of cleaning agent on it that says it will clean all metals? They sell it at the dealership for like $12. I can't remember the brand name, but I have to go there today, and I think I will pick one up, or at least ask the knowledgable parts guy that works there, also an airhead (also saving my ass) :thumb

    edit: I went all the way out there to get all the shit I ordered, and I fuckin forgot to get one, or even ask about it but I did get some free carbs from the parts guy, I just have to return what I don't need. Let me say this: Greg at Gulf Coast BMW is a seriously right on guy

    Windham Hill, i was only asking you about the jug paint job as a wagging-finger clue-in to what else you might need to look at. That previous-owner hooliganism is what counts, 'cos you'll hve to live with it/make it work.
    Aesthetically I'm of the "aint broke/ain't leaking don't fuck with it yet" school. I don't care if the PO painted the jugs Barney Purple-- the solution is simple and fun:

    I just broke out the airtool, some light abrasive pads and was finished with the cylinders,heads and valve covers in about 45 min. Good enough for me and my dog.:freaky :clap
