My other WNG (the one furthest away in the picture below) is looking pretty bad.
I think it's 10 years (probably more) on the road, winter and summer, and the british weather (and road salt) has taken it's toll. It still is my bike of choice on really shitty winter days.
I quite like powdercoat, for the coverage/durability and that I can just give it someone else to blast and coat
- BUT getting it in BS381c olive drab is almost impossible locally.
I am debating whether to light sand back and handpaint or do it properly by stripping back to metal and spraying. I have a tin of enamel in the right colour and I can use a spray gun.
Part of me, like Nev, is thinking a light sand and a few thick hand painted coats. On the other hand, I've been doing that for a few years and it probably needs the full treatment (takes bloody ages with the wire wheel on the angle grinder).
What would you do ?
