Well the paint wont be perfect, its just gonna last.

I spent a total of 4 hrs up to now sanding down the three layer paint on the plastics to make it smooth enough to my liking. Yes, I can use a filler to get the cracks and deep scratches etc but its not worth it in my eyes.

I think it will turn out nice and to my liking.

I still have some reinforcement plastic welding to do.

I have the tank and two small pieces to sand down, then Im going to likely prime the rear trims at work and hopefully good a good feel for the color etc. The rear piece has white on it also so I need to reassemble and draw lines.

Also need to shave the rear seat and paint the vinyl, paint the wheels and some minor stuff like front turn sigs, license leds, rear tray modification and sanding.

I didnt take any pics of the prepping. There really isnt too much to see other then a pile of plastics

And the rest of it pretty much looks the same other then the winking headlight.

The most unproductive day since Christmas at work.


So I decided to fk some chit up.

I have primed the rear pieces(4) need to get some sand paper and a filler, as well as more white primer. Im doing the rear sections at work because of the color changes. The rest will be done in someone's garage.

I also did some plastic welding on the cracks to prevent further tearing. Cleaned the crack w a wedge for better grip, sand, heat w the plastic solder gun, add filler w heat. Viola!

I got the extra primer, sand paper etc; but I have to work tomorrow and I need to clean out the 600 for the forest ride Sunday.

Project HondaMutt is once again closed off for now. Rest assured it will be finished eventually.

I suppose I can put a small one on for ya...

But I'd need it before we do clearcoat so the sticker is permanent...


Oh and for those that havent heard; peeps helping w the build get to sign the tank before the clearcoat. All the forest gnome riders get to sign over the clear as they join the FG rides

Thanks!

Im going to start attempting to prime all the pieces on Saturday after the GodSpeed meet before work closes.

They are not liking the whole painting thing there... but we'll see what I can squeeze by with. I have to prep the paint and three smaller pieces along w what was just filled.
