Thanks for the write-up...funny enough that we are on a MC board and this RARELY happens. +1 for a good job and nice write up...., I wrote a write up on counter shaft seal/push rod replacement and barely anyone noticed....I guess a lot of folks like to just pay someone else to do the job.

Thanks all.

SEM has a wide variety of colors. If one was creative, you could probably lay out some cool designs.

Not yet. Seems pretty flexible. Paint on my hands seems more like a dye and it soaks in to cracks.

Johnson Auto Paint on Hwy. 3 in Dickinson. The paint is made for vinyl and leather apholstery, so it should stand up to daily use. Feedback from calls to a few auto apholstery shops recommended this brand.

Yeah. He was prez of one of Houston's Harley owners groups. Got lots of laughs and requests for test rides whenever I was with him. My wife chose his ride on a return trip from Galveston over mine because of it.
