    That's the paint I used on my pan... It's the best paint I have ever used... It doesn't mar when you bolt up the parts like so many paints do. It ain't cheap but you won't find better paint...

    Are you looking for someone to paint your stuff???

    worked on body work, 1 last primer coat and should be ready for me to paint
    cleaned my emblem ,amazed at how it looks, brazzo some tin foil and rubbing with cloth got the crud off it.


    little puddy sanded


    I sand the primer off on hinge, it will get 1 light coat, I then tape off. I open hinge 1 coat only of paint goes on then I close hinge and put my coats of base coat on making sure not to bury the rivets, I pull tape off hinge and last coat of base coat goes on.
    On clear coat I open hinge and put 1 coat of clear on then let it close , by the way not all the way dont want to marry the hinge to the fender and then i clear coat.
    reason is The hinge builds up with paint and clear or single stage and cracks off. this helps to combat that from happening...


    for those wondering why paint costs alot to have done, its at shit load of prep work

    Wow! Beautiful Dave! I'd kill to own a knucklehead, I'll be there someday. You are in that part of the building where it's almost there, then all the little time consuming shit starts- wiring, brakes, finish paint etc....... then again it's time consuming for me, because I'm slow as hell! You almost got her done, keep at it! I'm DYING to see it!!!!

    any suggestions for a good 18" wheel set? repop hubs? or just find decent OEM hubs and rebuild and re-lace them?

    how original is the bike your building?
    these 18" seem to go for alot of cash, i have a set originals on my 46
    Id say if its for chopper , you can buy the ones from ted and check bearings and set them to spec or buy some hubs and build them
    me i would try to find oem hubs and rebuild. Call Buchanan they will have rims and spokes
    rear fender with trim on it, think i will mount tomorrow
