“In Progress” is a very very good place to be my friend … Potential is easily folded into hope .. Labeled: I’m not done yet ! says everything. The best is yet to come. You ain’t seen nothing yet ! Etc etc…. That’s where the impetus for pushing into tomorrow and tomorrow ..is born. No matter how hopeless it feels at times there’s always renewed hope when the sun comes up again….. an opportunity with unlimited potential is always on the horizon for brave people…. and you CO are a shape-shifter my friend. I await your MasterPiece UpOn2 Sir. ………………… onward thru the fog ! ………………….Blitz
That is true!

If you following here’s a quick update …. The paint job I’m doing is in progress using a polyurethane rubber deck coating … it’s a two part mix so it must be used all at once. Therefore ALL prep must be complete before any painting can begin … so … I decided to finish the new tail bag I began a month ago so it could be painted along with the tank and swing arm….. see picts below ….. paint should happen mid-week and be ready to ride by the week end … BeWell Mates ….

This shows box to bike proportions …

This special sprayer throws paint everywhere so everything that does not get paint gets covered … very messy stuff and application is not real accurate … AND if you’ve ever tried to clean up cured rubber spray when it goes where you DONT want it you know it’s easier to mask and mask some more. You won’t be sorry ,….

@BlitzSchnell - Duke, I couldn't help notice the work you're doing on the tank - are you going full exposed aluminum?
I reckon he's going for a full repaint of the tank, but we'll have to wait for the man himself to reply! ;)

Yes but the serious advantage of this paint is the prep doesn’t have to be perfect so just throughly roughing the paint and aluminum with 80 grit is great … the tank will be completely covered head to foot … no emblems as I’m filling the badge indent as well as the three indents of design pressed into the tail. The tank cap will be blacked out and I’m going to try the reverse mount so the cap lifts the other way … I read about breaking the lid from the weight of the gasoline nozzle and hose so I thought I’d try that out ., I’ll let you know.

Enjoy … …Blitz
