Get your minds out of the gutter you perverts!!!
I'm talking about painting some of the parts on the 9'er black!
I was hesitant to start spray bombing parts of the bike, but I started with the rear grab bar. It came out pretty well, with 5 coats of Black Metallic and three coats of clear its looking pretty nice. I did a couple other parts as well, and want to finish off everything that is the silver color like the forks and the piece the rear sets attach to. That will have to wait though, I don't want to take to much a part just yet!
Here are a few pics, I still need to let the Clear harden, wet sand, rubbing compound, polish and buff so keep that in mind.
This is the first coat on the headlight bracket.
This is just prior to the first coat of Clear.
One coat of Clear
This is the color I'm using. Black Metallic (Dupli-color) from Advance Auto.
As you can see, the sheen gets better and will look like a mirror once it is wet sanded and polished. Thank god for a 90+ degree day with plenty of sun. It really accelerated the process with my whole drive becoming a giant oven. Everything is cleared now, been baked in the oven (Drive way) for about 6 hours and now in the house cooling down. Tomorrow I will test a spot to see if they are ready for wet sanding.
