Lol it's true, I'm fly in fly out so I have a full 84 hrs primary focus is to get frame de tabbed, stripped and painted and engine striped and repainted then back in the frame so she's rolling again anything after that is a bonus hopefully the seat will also be finished

Paint stripper didn't work as well as I had hoped, apparently if you wrap it in foil dull side down it's more effective so I'm off to get some more stripper then back to it

Dogs are walked and fed washing done and hung out should have a full day at it

I spoke too soon apparently there is a BBQ we have to attend


First I gernied all the parts down to see what was left to get off
I'm not convinced the foil made any difference

Putting rust converter on after I hit the pieces with the wire brush


Then onto the frame


Thais is as far as I got

Keep in mind, a little shit left on there is gonna come off when scuffed up for the paint job anyhow. What are you painting with?

Yea I'll have to give it a scuff to smooth it out after the rust converter



Unfortunately spraying isn't going to be too tech so I thought I'd use this



This is the evolution of the frame batteries for the drill are both flat waiting for it to charge so I can finish the job and get the rust converter onto it

Fwiw I keep hearing good things about appliance epoxy for frames.

yea i figured if its good for roll cages it should be fairly durable. That said im still paranoid of scratching the frame when i  reinstall the engine.

Im thinking about bubble wrapping the frame when i go to in to install the engine, not sure how far ill get tomorrow as Im heading across town to my dads to have a crack at modifying the triple clamp on the mill to house the speedo and idiot lights.

If we get enough time we will try to make up some adapter plates so that the R6 rearsets can mount im thinking of using the original bolts that held the old rearsets then tap in some threads.

I  made up a wooden template for us to get the holes right
