Thin paint n rust

Post  sb1250 on Sat 02 Aug 2014, 11:27 am

First topic message reminder :

Just put my new rear tyre on and noticed rust on the frame!

 

The rust runs along the top of the pillion foot peg mtg brkt, and it's only on the left side.
Never had this on any of my previous steel framed bikes.

Not doubting the final finish, its what's underneath that would concern me.

I recon any other panel beater would have just thrown it in the skip.  This bloke has made it look bloody good for what he is going to use it for. I'm guessing he's a painter, not a panel beater.

Photos usually hide a lot of what is really there, I see less than average paint jobs every day that look great in photos

Paint, bog and panel beating aside (and compared to what I could do he did a brilliant job IMHO), I'm not sure having a switch positioned there is the wisest place to have it, especially on a race bike where pilot ejection has already been trialed affraid

Yes Barry. Funny place for a switch. Considering you have to take your hand off the bars to operate it, I wonder what it is for.

For what its used for why beat it out at all Razz

The end use is irrelevant.This bloke got onto a public forum stated he was a spray painter with a good deal of knowledge of panel beating. Then went on to show novices (who may try it on their pride and joy) how to do a pretty shabby job.
It might look good in the flesh but as he says himself its 90% in the prep work and then went onto to put bog on to 10mm thick. With his first layer of bog on he then taps the high points down with a hammer!
Hate to think that these are practices he's picked up from where he works

The point I'm trying to make, if your going to teach people to do anything, you teach them the right way.

And I'm not saying I could do better, but then I not the one putting out in public a "how to" thread.

The photos taken in the spray booth look better. Shape looks about right. But your right you'd need to see it in the flesh where you can get the angles with the light better.
