Very nice. I like the choice of paint.
So, the wrinkle finish paint is a no go!
It absolutely will not wrinkle in a few areas no matter what I tried, worth a go i guess but it's not happening.
So to plan B, sand the paint smooth and use it as a tough undercoat for a 2K satin black paint.
Well, after leaving the paint for a good few days I decided I didn't like it,
It just looked a bit, I don't know, thin!!
So went again and this time gloss black followed by 2k clear, swingarm in the same.
Looks much better and nice and tough.
Got to loosely put a few bits together for a bit of a mental boost.
I have extended the thread down the swingarm pivot as I won't be using the old footrest hanger plates that it passed through, so I can cut it to a shorter length to suit.
Guys, I need some help.
I'm currently trying to get some measurements for a couple of spacers for the rear shock upper mounts.
But both sides are different and I can't grasp why, it would seem the standard shocks would have been at slightly different angles to each other.
One side (the chain side) has a captive spacer on the top shock mount that isn't on the right hand side.
Why would this be?
