I have the time , and the wife is out of town. Now I can get something done. The plan is to redo my lower sliders with basecoat /clear, and do the same to my cast aluminum wheels, which will require more than enough detail taping off. I got the sliders sanded and primer last evening, and later to day after work I'll stop by the body shop and try to pick the color I need. I'm thinking either med. gray metallic for the sliders, and gloss black for the rim spokes? it's killing me to have the bike torn down now, I miss it already , and it's only two days.:shock: I guess the only way to get it back, is to really get on it.
