Priming the Tank

The Legbreaker tank is now primed and ready for base coating.

Spent most of the day today, sanding and bogging, sanding bogging x 20.  Removing the dings on the top and sides and the Yamaha indents smooth ready for primer.  If I had a babies bottom next to it and a blindfolded person had to distinguish between the too, I'd bet my bottom dollar that they would have a tough time.


Happy with the results.  Will need to wetsand the primer with 400 grit before laying down the base coat.

Also made a start on cleaning up the Engine cases.  They were slightly scratched up but using the buffer wheel they've come up alright.  Still deciding on the whether or not to paint the remaining engine parts.
