painting 82
« on: March 15, 2008, 09:21:24 PM »
 My son 'Dustin' has been riding his 82 for 2 years now without the lowers and sporting a large dent in the left side of the tank. He's not as good in the corners as he thinks. :o  I'm in the process of prepping the body work for painting. We are probably going with a graphite color.    Anyway I'm installing stainless steel mesh behind the vent holes in the lowers. The mesh looks like house gutter stuff. Always something new to try on these old bikes.

 :) Kevin, try a piece behind the black plastic rad' housing...Looks neat but also helps to keep stones, etc away from the rad' fin's...

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming HOOOOYA lets go again baby !!!!!!

'82 Vision, Pearl Orange finish, lots of up-grades!!!
