Aircraft Paint Remover (brand not important). Any big box home improvement store will have it. Read and follow the instructions!

Jasco spray is the best.

Jasco in the can is 2nd choice.

Found a clean CBR600 rear coilover w/ remote resivoir to replace the factory Sliverwing air shock... only $50 shipped.

The coilover is less than a centimeter longer that the air shock w/ same diameter mounting bolts.

Also making plugs to reinforce new seat joints.

Latest progress includes sandblasting the swingarm, painting it, and installing the bearing race.

Then even more sandblasting of the frame. I probably  have at least 5 hours of blasting this stinkin' frame. Yesterday's lunchtime consisted of  prepping the frame, then today was a great day between rainstorms to lay some primer on it.

Next is some basic assembly to begin seat tube fabrication.

Hopefully next week I can do some loose assembly of the GSXR front end
