Too late some of the paint is stripped and some is not.

There was rust at some spots, but only on the outside. The inside was clean though.
I thought, if am doing it, I might as well do it right. Bad choice I guess.

Any ideas on paint strippers??

If you're covering it up then you don't care about a pristine surface...

Get a paint removing wheel that chocks into a standard drill...go to town. You'll be done in 10 min for about $8

Aircraft Remover? Nasty stuff (don't get it on anything you don't want taken to bare metal) available at Walmart in the auto stuff (where they have bondo and spray on bed liners)

Yeah, that "kinda" did the trick. I got most of it out but not everything. Especially where there is decal adhesive or corners where the stripper wouldnt stay to bubble up the paint.

I also went ahead and bought one of these


WIll get back with results and pics in the evening.

Did the same on side plastics too.

I actually made sure that some of the brands I use on the bike are more visible, like vapor, wolfman, acerbis etc etc..
Too bad Keintech doesnt do stickers. (I asked them for some but they dont apparently have any in stock)

Man, this looks great. I want to sticker bomb my Pelican and have been collecting stickers from everywhere I go. Think I might clear over everything or even use some bartop epoxy to preserve them (stickers from yellowstone, grand canyon, national parks, etc.)

I've had the same pelican on 3 bikes so far and I think i'm gonna make it my little expression piece haha.

Great work. Can't wait to see it all on the bike.

If you want to do a long-distance endurance run with my wee vs your DR650 let me know. I couldn't handle more than 250 miles or so before I was beat on the DR.

Would absolutely be interested in any leftover stickers.

Challenge accepted. Something Mid-summer??

PS: I have previously ridden a 2-stroke 200CC bike over 900 Kilometers (500+ miles) on a winter night only stopping for gas. The DR is not going to be that bad..... (I think.. )

I have some friends that work for a company named Threadless out of Chicago; it's a t-shirt design company. They had some spare stickers and were looking for ways to add some advertisements to their van...



www.Threadless.com

I'm guessing their job was easier, because there weren't as many sharp corners.
