While in the garage working on my new "small" winter project I have also been chipping away at the job I hate the most ...painting.
The rear mounts are 95% complete, So I started on the front mounts. These were a complete nightmare to wire brush to get rid of the surface rust. Once I did that they got a coat of black hammerlite and then a sand and coat of zinc grey.
While I was brushing away with the hammerlite the seat subframe also came in for a coat of paint.
Left guard drying,
All done ready for top coats.
Next up were the underside mounts, they got a good coat of hammerlite. The fiberglass guard also got a coat of the final satin black.
All bolted together ready for the top coats.
That has take over 2 weeks of even work to get to this stage. Its rough, but should be well rust proof.
