    I'm working on a project with my VTR Firestorm getting some stainless steel split flanges fabricated in a small run. On the VTR v-twin the front pot gets hit by salty spray and heat and the OEM mild steel flange gradually disintergrates. Not helped that Honda set them as non removeable on the...

    Hi all, I'm having trouble finding any suitable paint for the exhaust heat shields on an RD03. What have people used in the passed? As far as I know the colour is Magnesium Gold. Will regular paint work or will it need to be high temperature? I won't be painting the engine casings...
