That frame is sparkling, looks mega neat. What's the finish? Paint?

Appliance epoxy over not hardened primer, gives slightly more satin finish (accidental, I'm a lousy painter  ;D )

Looks brilliant either way. Do you finish the tubes with anything? Reason I askis I've got some ripples from the grinder with my bike. Wondering if they won't be noticeable, a filler primer is to be used or if I need something more drastic like body filler.

Either take an orbital sander with some 220 to it or body filler if its bad. You'll see the grinder marks otherwise

I sandblasted, etch primer, undercoat primer then 3~4 topcoats (did them on different days)

I had the same problem after cutting a bunch of stuff off my frame.  Sometimes body filler is too heavy for some of the small defects.  Glazing putty is the best solution I have found.  It's like concentrated primer you spread on with a rubber squeegee.  Primer/sealer you parts first, scuff them down to reveal your low spots, and fill with glazing putty.  Knock back the putty with 220, or 400 grit.  Lay one more coat of primer over it to seal it up, and then prep for paint.  Don't final paint over glazing putty, or it will show through.

It ain't easy, but, it IS possible to fit a Dyna S off a Goldwing to a CB360.
 Had to machine backplate to fit 360 head and a few other modifications. Also machined points cover for clearance, then machined it a lot more as bike won't be out in the rain
Haven't fired it up yet but we have spark at the correct time
