Fresh paint job
« on: May 23, 2019, 09:11:57 »
I just finished this paint job for my '71 CB350.  I also rebuilt the motor, painted the frame, and refurbished many parts.  I'm anxious to get it back together and ride.

That does look good....n shiny too. Hope you used petrol resistant paint?

I used rattlecans on my tank (not 2pak) which came out well with some buffing, but didn't seal it with a coat of lacquer (I'd had reaction issues on previous attempts) but then spilt some modern ethanol petrol on it.....it melted the surface as it ran down the tank :(

The clear is PPG catylized urethane.  It's long lasting.  I'll post pics in a few days when it's back on the road.

Still have a few details to iron out.
