a bit of a freshen up.
« on: Apr 21, 2019, 06:02 PM »
As I've posted I did some cleaning of downpipes yesterday, so today was the top panels, as you may have guessed I'm not one for too much cost or effort these days, so some decent prep, some masking and a touch of Satin black paint.


peeling off old decals.



Rub down and a coat of primer.



some masking.



couple of coats of Satin black.



and the unmasked result, of course not finished yet, but good enough to go back on for tomorrow.



and offered up to the bike.

Great ride today, stayed off the beaten track mostly so not to much traffic, thought I'd give you a look with the top panels fitted as the bikes just had a quick hose down.
