G'day mate. When you say base coat, are you meaning just some sort of undercoat/primmer?Hey Nato fellow fighter pilot! I recommend a light sanding with 300 or 500 grit metal sandpaper, add base coat then silver paint. Base coat needs a ruff surface to grab onto and silver paint will grab onto base coat! Of course make sure others bike parts are well covered to avoid over spray. Good luck! Cheers!
Good stuff mate. I am down in the Gong and moving into the southern ranges soon... maybe. It is a good ride down. I go to Cairns and T'ville sometimes. Coffee is hot and the beer is cold here. Funny thing about this post thread, I am going to have to do my forks as soon as I get the new shop together. Still moving atm. I hate moving. Cheers
