Hard to tell in the pics but paint turned out great! A lot of work that's for sure.

I was goin though the hardware for the fairing. Looks like I'm pretty close to having all the parts. I need some diagrams to find out. I took pictures at the shop to try and match up the parts.






I believe I have it all.

Also I still have my koni's and my cables as well. Ill probably spend all day Friday putting it back together.

I will touch up the frame as well. Any recommendations for touch up painter just mask the bike off and spray with some black rustoleum?

I gotta pull the wheels off to paint the rims black and that's also the best time to remove the old fenders and reinstall the newly painted ones.

I've found semi-gloss black Krylon Plastic paint to be good. Be sure its the plastic though as the regular krylon is crap the last year or so.

I was planning on putting on the knee pads on today. I've heard of people using clear bathroom silicon. I wonder if I will have any issues with the tank being raw and using gibbs to seal the tank? I live in Az will the clear silicon hold in this high heat? I was thinking about adding primer to the part underneath the knee pads, as well as the roundels, then attaching the knee pads using the bathroom silicon and the roundels with the adhesive that is already on the back.

any opinions?

3M Weatherstrip Cement, aka gorilla snot.
make sure the surfaces are clean and follow the instructions on the tube. Wear gloves, the stuff smells foul and takes forever to come off your fingers. When I was racing my RD back in the 70's ( damn I'm old) it was accepted by WERA in place of safety wire.

Hah. You gotta be kidding. Your indoors. Looks like you have electricity, you have plenty of room, maybe pumped heat too? Dry and clean. How about taking it all outside and doing this in the dirt? Or you can borrow my curb.

Get you some Shade Tree mechanic creepers. Cardboard boxes to lay on. Now your livin'.

I'm outdoors. No heat. Usually in dirt. I usually wet the dirt so it doesn't get everywhere. Gravel would suck.
