The weather was great in Canberra today, so to get rid of the baby blue side cover I thought today was a good day to do some painting.

I have been priming and filling for the last few weeks and was happy with the smooth finish of both the oil tank and the sidecover.

I did this by applying a few light coats first to promot adhesion, then just followed through with a coat every 20 minutes, 4 or 5 coats UPOL gloss black, then 5 coats UPOL clear coat.



















these cans are $20 for gloss and clear and 33 for high build primer.

i used 2x cans primer, 2x cans gloss black and 2x cans clear.

All good except for one small dent to the clear coat that i made with my respirator mask when i was peering too close. Should buff out hopefully.

looks as good as a gun finish, particularly avoiding any dry patches around the anti froth tower and fill; well done.

i am at odds as to whether i should apply trophy stickers or bonneville stickers. or any stickers at all.

I like the idea of the original decals but im not too pedantic. The bike frame is a TR6p but the engine and colour combo is bonneville.

...may be put only the "minimum oil level" sticker on the oil tank and the Triumph emblem in the gasoline tank with the chromed stripe in the middle and just that.
There are some models that say: "650"

If it was mine I would probably put trophy stickers on one side and bonneville stickers on the other and don't tell anyone. Just wait and see who picks up on it then tell them the inside joke.

I like the way you think KCgran. That's the sort of shit I like to do. Really pisses off some people.

some of the old blokes i know would literally have a heart attack once they worked that out.

When i mentioned I was buying the oversized-fin exhaust clamps - old mate screwed up his face and told me he doesn't go for that hippy shit.

just as well you are building your bike to please you and not "old mate" .
Your spray can paint turned out tops.
I recently finished a 40's push bike resto/upgrade for a bloke using that U-POL paint and it is super good ,esp that clear.
