    Re: Rim Decisions

    I used Rusteleum Appliance epoxy paint on mine. Seems pretty durable but requires a long cure time. Comes in a spray can and can be found at Lowes.

    Thanks for the info and pictures. I think this is the route I will attempt. I will try to locate the appliance epoxy. I imagine most places that sells rustoleum brand will have it. Thanks, eric

    You don't have to be really precise in taping it. A rag with acetone will dress a nice crisp line very quickly

    Thanks Jim. I was wondering how everyone made the lines so crisp and straight. I started stripping some last night. I need to buy a new scotch brite wheel that goes on my drill tonight. Heres what I got done so far.

    Looks good
    Be careful using power tools on the wheels, they can get messed up pretty quickly. It's hard to keep an even "grain" going with the power.

    Thanks for the tip. I've used the 3m scotch brite (red) wheels before with good success.

    Agree

    Paint stripper, wire wool and fine wet and dry (wet) for me, takes longer using fine grades of paper but getting deep scratch's out that the power tool put in can take even longer.

    On my ZX9R Kawasaki had already left a pretty good surface finish under the paint, all I had to do was gently remove it and polish it up a bit.

    Yes, the drill can cause more damage, If your not careful. But I have polished some other cases I had in the past and they turned out great. Heres a picture of one in mid polish. This was years ago. But I used scotchbrite wheels, some fine sand paper and diffrent compounds for a mirror finish. I know the pictures are not the greatest. Phones had bad cameras then lol. The engine is a built 1980 kz 1000 engine with a 1327 kit.

    Re: Rim Decisions

    all you need for the wheels is aircraft stripper and a plastic scraper. Oh, and a little elbow grease.
