Yeah, they sell the primer and 3 colors at most stores (purple is usually one of them though). I ordered any other colors from Summitracing.com.

There's some examples on Duplicolor's site too: an engine, I think a guitar, and some other stuff.

I have used VHT caliper paint with fantastic success on motors.  It will stick to a puddle of oil and is VERY chemical resistant, plus the 'Cast Aluminum' and gloss black colors are both VERY nice looking.

So I got my table finished, engine came in, and I started taking the head off. Just need to read the manual again and take the can chain off so I can finish taking it down.

Just waiting on my pistons to come in and I can start the boring process. Also. Going to work on the frame and remove the swing down kickstand and unnecessary tabs and suck and sand/wire wheel it clean.. other than that life has been getting in the way of doing more. Like usual I assume.

So, it's been a while since I have posted and I have done a good bit since.. I need to post pictures on here. I broke down the engine I'm waiting on my cam to get rephased, new springs and guides, painted engine parts, worked on the frame a bit. Now, I'm just waiting to find info on clearances for boring the new juggs to to the new 466 pistons. So its going pretty well..

I do however have a general question, Since my engine is broke down should I go ahead and change out the clutch plates? The engine had 15k+ miles on it and I dont know if they have been changed.. they are fairly cheap(around $40). Is the process hard and worth it?

To recap what I have done in the past few months, I have broke my engine down, removed valves, pistons, and cam, heavily cleaned everything that can be seen, prepped and painted the engine, and worked on the frame cleaning it up getting rid of unnecessary tabs and metal(not done yet). No I am just waiting on machine work for the bigger bore pistons and my cam to be returned with higher performance phased and new valve springs. Also some tidbits from 400tt like cam tensioner, new guides, and a couple other nic-nacks.. I'm posting some pictures of my progress so far..

Wow, I thought you were out this whole time.

If you do change the clutch plates, wait until the new ones are soaked in oil overnight before pulling the old clutch apart - makes it easier to keep track of assembly order. And get new clutch springs with the new plates.
