Jason - have not heard of such a process. I do have Mothers wax in the garage now. Nor I have I heard of the technique of baking the polish on. The easy way would be to polish and then clear powder coat. I just spent the morning looking at hundreds of chips and parts over at the powder coaters. Wow - theres at lot of choices - I'm probably more uncertain of the frame color now - than before I went. :-DOn 2006-11-28 11:02, Mancha wrote:
John, have you heard of and/or used a product called Mother's? My friend recommends it for polished parts. He says that you put some on a final polished part and bake it in the oven for a while, and it prevents the aluminum from discoloring afterwards. Sound likely/familiar?
Jeff - just mailed my head and jugs to the machine shop and ordered the 42 mm Mikuni's from Bill. Now - what kind of cams...hmmOn 2006-11-28 12:46, sweatmachine wrote:
JCW, we can't wait to see what you come up with!
I'm about to follow in your footsteps...I'm going to order valves from Keith and I called Dinqua's recommended machine shop to do the valve install and port/polish, I'm going with a Wiseco kit I think, and the 41mm mikuni carbs...
that is, IF the XS650 sells and I have a few bites on it now.
Some powdercoat colors are a two-stage process, with one color baked on first, and then a second overlying it. I wonder if these particular colors are as stable? I think it may be the case that the second coat adheres to the first coat poorer than the first coat adheres to the bare metal. If you're thinking about such a color, you might want to ask them about it first.I just spent the morning looking at hundreds of chips and parts over at the powder coaters.
