Hello Fellow Fighter Pilots! Been doing alot of work of the wrapping kind. Lots of pics. Might have to skip some projects to get the bike on the road. Such as my crash wings. They are 50% complete and require more work, and a few other doo dads... But for now this is what I've been working on. Partial pics more to come!

Unfortunately wasted a whole year waiting on painted rims... So I said ''Screw that! I'll do it myself! How hard could it be!!!'' I'll save a crap ton of $$ and learn along the way...

Will need to remove existing silver paint and do a light sanding. Followed by 2 cans of gloss white APPLIANCE EPOXY PAINT. That has an ultra hard enamel/finish. Will use TWO cans for each rim...

After doing all this work I decided to powder coat for better durability. So removed all the paint. Actually was easy to remove and chip!

Well, rim job came out better than expected with only one tiny little run. So I will allow one week to dry and wet sand it with probably 800 or maybe 1000 grit and apply one more coat and that’s it done! Really happy with the results! Saved myself a ton crap of money in the process and NOW I know how to paint rims!😃 (Cost per rim $350! So $700. My cost for one rim 6(7hrs) and $40 for stovetop ultra hard enamel paint!). Rear rim will be done in half the time! Soooo... 10 hrs and $85 worth of paint! 😃👍🏾

Thanks man! In part to you! Many Fighter Pilots on this forum(And a few from other Blackbird forums!) have inspired me to do AMAZING work on my Blackbird! (y)
Hello Fellow Fighter pilots! Still working on rims and adding some Black vinyl here and there... Will have pics of finish product soon! Waiting for FULL curing. In the mean time, did my first test of powder coating on rear disk bolt! Came out GREAT! Looking forward to completing ALL my bolts and bits!

Parts are really looking GOOD! You may notice a couple parts seem darker!? Not quite sure how that happened but I suspect maybe too much heat? OR uneaven spray? Not quite sure... However, don't think I'll have that problem with Black or white... Still have a couple of large pieces to do then I move onto to BLACK powder coating. This is alot of fun! I swear! If my oven was 2 to 3 inches wider I would have powder coated my rims!

PC rotors... I had originaly painted them, however they wouldn’t match with PC bolts...

Didn't get a chance to clean around the edges!

Looks so much better!

Hey my man Malo! Yep coming along fine! But still have soooo much work to do! I have the whole month of July off and pushing hard to have it all done so my G and I can go for a nice trip!
Powder Coated(PC) passenger hangers...

So after PC some 60 pieces finally had a small problem with hanger coating. I could leave it! But I'm NOT happy with it. So, will redo...

Not quite sure how this happened since it's been double cleaned AND degreased. AND surface is smooth with no defects!

Can't really see it here BUT it's there! Not happy! So going to strip it down to the metal(Pain in the azz!) an re-do it.

Love looks like you picked up some foreign matter while coating. Putting the electrostatic charge on the part means it'll grab dust in the air as well.

Isn't that area under the bodywork so won't be seen? Yes being a perfectionist is one thing (and congratz on excellent work) thing but add a tad of pragmatist and save yourself time/ resources. You can always go back later once project complete?
Thanks Beestoys! But in the end it was a blemish on the metal itself. Even after sanding still came out with a spot!
Thanks Malo! Blimey! NOW you tell me! Lolol quite right! But already done... No biggie! And now moving on to Black powder coating. Still have driver pegs to do in red but first have to cut out Honda wing... Migh have found a better méthode than hack saw cut like in first build.
