You coming down to Rockers Reunion on May 14th?
I SO want to be there on the Bomber 'oldwing! Need to get some decent weather so I can get her out for some higher milage cruises now that everything is titled and registered befor I venture that far though...
 
While I was at the Autoparts store picking up some Duplicolor 1650 engine paint for the engine case I found VHT's epoxy black for the fork lowers and after reading the can seemed exactly what I need. Snagged a can and now waiting on the weather to co-opperate to shoot them.

This ones coming along nicely Hoosier!   Lots of love in the polished parts.  Let me know how the epoxy works may grab some for my sons mini bike project.

Thanks Maritime! I will post picks of the final product.
Today I got the polished oil pan back on and masked it off then shot the bottom half of the engine cases with the Duplicors engine enamel. That way I got the big end resealed ASAP and I can roll her back upright to continue onto the top half.
 Also finished scuffing the primer on the frame... Another good day with low humidity and I can shoot it in the metalic charcoal grey I picked up for it.

"...and the frame was hung from the rafters with care,
In hopes that warm dry weather soon would be there."
 
Some times it pays to listen to the Weather Man! Yesterday they were predicting good sunny warmth here for a change so I hung the frame and blew it all off while wipeing it down with alcohol, then turned to grinding off the tabs from the swinger for the fat chrome chaingaurd I won't be using. Need to sandblast, prime and paint it. I want to try that Rustoleum bedliner spray in its center section before shooting it with color...
 Today just as promised 70 when I got off work. I came home, blew it off one last time and shot the Charcoal Grey. 4 coats with the last one so heavy to avoid dry spray I though it might sag, but it turned out nice and glossy from any angle and no sags... At least what I could see in the shop lighting.
 

 

 
In person it is much darker, but my cell pics brightened it up in the shops low light conditions. So once it cures I will take it out in the sunshine for better pics with the good camera. Next comes the swingarm, I bought a spare can of paint from the same lot for that and will have enough for some misc fasteners later.

Hoosier, is that your garage? Looks like an airplane could park in there. Or at least a lot more motorcycles and such......


Good work!

Ha-ha-ha Rich, that is the east end of my "shop" aka: Garage Mahal / Man cave, that's NOT attached to the house.  Had a little thread when it was being built at the end of last summer here. http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=16545.0
 

 
Some of the previous posts on this Zookie build were looking the other direction (west). It's only 24 x 32 but it is the cats ass for my 3 bikes, 2 mowers, a 12' oak bar and 3 work benches and still room to work on a car if the two car garage is full. That's a 12' wide overhead door... For the winter I only had a 100' 10/3 extension cord running out there for lights and power tools, but this summer it's getting POWER! And yes, I plan on more bike builds and working on other peoples bikes out of it for a side business. Friends are getting the word around, have two jobs lined up already. Formal announcement of the business name forthcoming ;)

Ya, I remember that thread now. Maybe it's the angle of the pic or something but it looks huge in there. Power is great, I wouldn't mind running water. And air conditioning........

Better outdoor pics of the frame to show it's true color. Gloss is still there but didn't show up in the pics...
 


 
AND I got 4 coats of VHT epoxy paint on the fork lowers... today it was not too warm out, so once they dried to the touch I brought them in to cure over night. This stuff lays nice!
