Not much happenning....waiting for parts

Posted 16th June 2012 at 16:49 by 62 Ironhead

Waiting on a few parts before I can do much more:
- Thrust washers on order so I can complete the engine re-build
- Springer front end on order so I can finish the front end
- Front wheel bearings on order so I can finish the front wheel re-build

Decided to do a couple of small jobs:
- Fitted a Gorilla alarm
- Fitted up the kickstand (found some black hose...MADE IN USA)

Best way to get rid of chrome

Posted 9th June 2012 at 14:12 by 62 Ironhead

Just an update on what I have been doing to get ride of my chrome.

I have been using the following process and it has worked well so far on a lot chrome items, such as bolts, caps, brackets:
Step 1 - Buff with a Scotchbrite pad (medium) as this get rids of the shine and creates a profile
Step 2 - Clean with some metho
Step 3 - Paint with an etch primer (3 light coats...1 hour in between coats)
Step 4 - Paint with satin black acrylic (3 light coats...10-15...

Kustomtech hand controls

Posted 8th June 2012 at 15:04 by 62 Ironhead

Did a bit of custom work to my Kustomtech hand controls, dulled down the brass so it has a satin finish and also painted all the aluminium satin black.
