Good point.  Short answer is I don't know for sure.  However, hammerite survives calipers just fine, and the appliance stuff is supposed to be ok on cookers, so I'm pretty comfortable with it.

That's what I was thinking, ovens get pretty hot sometimes and the paint stays.

After much nagging from the Missus I've decided to re use the original  cover and front mud guard.  It was a rare special edition, so I guess it's nice to keep the spirit alive...

I'll probably pay a pro to paint the seat unit to match.

could always get another tank and guard to paint and mothball the limited bits for future too.

I've another tank and guard already primed, so that's not a bad idea.  I'll get some quotes when I get the seat done, see how anally invaded it'll leave me.

OK, apologies for the lack of updates.  One of the downsides of being a carer is I don't always get the time I could like.

Things are still progressing, albeit slowly.

I've rebuilt the fuel cock with a repair kit and resprayed the fuel tank.  That is to say the real tank, which is hidden from view once the dummy cover is fitted.

A few other brackets and bits repainted, and the Goodridge brake hose fittings cleaned up and polished.

I'm now cleaning up the shock, which I now believe is a GSXR600 unit rather than the 'busa unit I'd originally thought.  The shock body was excellent, but the spring was a little tatty.  Dismantled it all, cleaned up the spring and slipped a length of electrical heat shrink label over the spring.  A few minutes with the hot air gun and it looks good as new, but won't chip like paint.  Just need to reassemble.

Progress pics soon.

I''ve decided to spray the wheels with a fine truck bedliner, more in this soon.

And then I'll be starting on the frame.  Watch this space.
