Sorry i can't help regarding colour. He works in a big body shop and mixes the paint to suit.+1 Thanks!:thumbup:
What color did your freind use? I used cheap wheel color (for you scandinavians: "Biltema fälgfärg") for the black bits but would like some paint of better quality for the engine ceses.
Do the same principles work on fork bottoms? Mine are a bit cruddy and need tidying up. Cheers.
Thats Nice Work on the shocks.Futter
Yes , my bike had a previous owner who knew nothing about bikes or just didnt give a sh1t . If your going to refurd your shocks you should change the oil seals and dust seals at a minimum and buy the way its easy.
I striped my forks for a rebuild. Wire brush the housings of the fork , then filed down a couple of nicks , did a good job degreaseing them and sprayed em with hammerite silver smooth finish and gave them a week to cure in the house. This is what they looked like before I started.
And this is how they finished up.
I did the head stock and lower as well .
I'm minding the bike now so far theres been no problem with the paint in fact the hammerite on the crank cases seems to have cured hard on account of the heat time will tell but Im happy.
Hope thats of some help.
