Jon would it be possible to post the last set of pictures under a "new" post.  I almost got them to load once and then had to go off-line and now I can't get them to load at all.  I get the little red X.  I don't know if there is too many pictures in that one thread for my poor old computer or what.

Thanks, Sum

More progress on the bike,, however today SUCKED... I had to sand the body down for new paint this year. Now this process sounds simple but it was the worst time yet this year working on the bike... First went with a 150 grit sandpaper and it wasnt touching the paint, then I tried 100 grit and it was doing something... Then went for the big stuff Aircraft Paint remover, bubbles the paint then scrapped with a putty knife, then sanded with 100 grit paper,,, Ahh now things started moving along... It was 95+ outside when I was doing this, so every 45 minutes I took a break and drank a couple glasses of water... I know one thing I WILL NOT be when I grow up and thats a body, paint guy..

I have also added pictures at this link.

I have a few things I need to repair the firberglass, like where I dropped it last year, a few extra holes that dont need to be there, and some fill in areas where the front body mates up with rear body, also planning to run APS so looking to make an extended tail section 8". And adding a new winshield this year, the little one I have been using was too hard to see out of in full tuck position on the bike...

Cant wait for the paint to get here...

Hi Jon
are you sticking with the same general idea on the paint job? I always thought it was a great looking "do"....from photo's anyway... can't agree more about paint and panel work...at the moment I've got "girly hands" after staying away from thinners and general sanding slurry for as long as I can and I can't say it's a bad thing!!

best wishes .James

Yeah my hands were pretty much cracked and hurt, even had gloves on during the whole process... O yeah dont get aircraft paint remover on your arms,,, it will set you running 5 sec 50 yard dashes for the nearest water source.... My wife made me do Satin Hands last night,, It was fun being pampered....

Paint job will not be the same, it will be what they call mirra chrome with red candy...
