    A big ol bug landed in my freshly painted side cover! And then of course as i do, i knocked it face down into the grass trying to remove it


    Just imagine the tank and the side covers on a non butchered bike and that’s what i’m going for lol


    BUT, speaking of side covers, has anyone bought from this guy? http://www.retrocb.com/index.html
    I guess he makes them himself, and lots of random little things for vintage hondas
    I ordered my missing side and it’s already in the mail so we’ll see

    It always happens when you get a good coat of paint on something that is very visible, it's painter's luck. Let it fully dry, sand it lightly and put another coat on it. A few here have bought from Retrocb, he seems to have a good reputation.

    Good to know, and if all works out i see he has the rubber grommets for the original air filters. If i ever find any, i may buy those. I still have mine, but i can’t imagine they will offer “peak performance”

    I think i am going to get the frame sand blasted by somebody. I was quoted $100 for sandblasting the frame and $300 to powdercoat it. The appliance paint is working great so i think i’ll stick with that.

    What needs removed? I think they can cover the vin plate. I’ll remove the 4 top rubber side cover grommets. I think there are 2 grommets where the rear fender attaches? The rubber looks pretty toast

    You'll also want to remove the steering head bearing races if you haven't already, along with the bushings in the swingarm if you're getting it done. I'd follow Jim's process of removing and reinstalling the VIN plate, too easily damaged if you leave it there. For that price the powdercoating place should do the blasting as well

    Definitely remove the VIN plate to preserve it, one little mistake in sandblasting is all it takes to ruin it.

    I think i changed my mind, i’m trying to do it myself. The company said it’d take 3 days to do it, there arent that many paintable days left.

    How do i remove the gas cap? I’d like to paint that today. Do i need to break the pins that hold it on?

    I think this piston on the left is clean enough, it’s the right side one. I made some progress on the other but it’s not quite there yet. Are those 4 hashes on it something to worry about?
    I’ll try to take the rings off and look at the ring lands next.

    I still haven’t been able to get the gas cap off, i may just wait until spring to paint now

    Give the pistons a shot of oven cleaner then scrub after a few minutes.

    Those 4 marks look like they could be from a spark plug, they're about in the right spot for it
