Today I'll be painting the bottom yoke.  Undecided whether to paint or polish the top yoke.  I'll have to mull that over a Guinness or three.

Walking round the garage not paying attention and I headbutted the yoke which was hanging from the rafters.  It hurt.

Thanks guys.  Got a bump on the head  but thankfully the paint was undamaged - thats the important thing!

No real progress to report today. The Missus is out and I got the sprog.

Undeterred, I sneaks  the brake caliper indoors and checked them over.  Surprisingly clean and in good order, with smooth moving pistons and no evidence of leaks.  I thunked it over and then ordered some Rustoleum Appliance Stainless Steel spray to repaint them.  I'm quite looking forward to that.

Been working this week so not a great deal happening.  However, started stripping the Busa rear shock for cleaning and to repaint the spring.

Today I painted the rear caliper mount and the caliper itself.

I painted the mount in Hammerite to match the frame.  Lovely.

More interestingly I used Rustoleum stainless appliance spray on the caliper and it looks stunning.

I need to get some pictures up, but at the moment most items are still hanging up while the paint cures, and I'm just a bit wary of unnecessarily handling items whet  the paint is still green.  Soon my friends, soon...

Does the stainless appliance have a heat rating?  I know calipers get hot, I am guessing the paint is OK for ovens and such so they get hot, but is it rated hot enough?
