Yep, you can make an oven with some wood and insulation and a couple light bulbs. Just need a thermometer and a vent to adjust the heat. The paint doesn't need high heat, most are 200-250 deg F and they will cure.

Mine is missing side covers, air filters and the filter housings, and it'll be hard and expensive to track them down, so it feels like a perfect donor for a custom build!
At present I'm gonna do the same as you, but if mods look hard to do with the 725b, I may have to save up for the mikuni's.
Anyway, I find having a deadline to work to sometimes energises you to get stuff done, so sure you'll get it all sorted in time. Chuffed for you that they wisely saw fit to include a true shed build in the show. See you then!
