Post Rear swing arm derust/paint



Been busy picking up more toys 81 gl1100 standard (naked), 86 gl1200 interstate Goldwing's and also working on a old 96 ford aerostar minivan.
I have decided to let go on the crotch rocket and concentrate on the wings, something about a easier riding position for my back. Plus the bike will be happier with a younger rider that will flogger right.
At any rate here I am removing the swing arm for some much needed TLC, the humidity in the tropics is relentless, yet at least we don't throw salt on the roads figure that's even worst

Smile Paint prep


Down to the original primer, now comes the grinding and primer.
It helped a lot to clean all the dirt and grease with solvent/brush. This way the paint remover just had to work on the top paint coat.
It is actually worst on the underside.

Don't be down wind while wearing shorts when spraying.
What looks like nice lawn is actually some wild weeds that took over the backyard, if you keep them trim they look nice.

Thanks guys.
Definitely very good stuff, very aggressive.

Grinded away the heavy rust, used a hand wire brush for the tight spots and for the very hard stuff to get I used naval belly.
Got 2 coats on the swing arm already. Just that my old lumia 1520 needs a new battery.
I will post some pictures tomorrow. It looks great so far.

Thanks again for the B day wishes.

Looks really good compared to the way it was.
