Both forks are now ready for primer and paint. Couldn't find wire brushes to get into the bottom yoke (what a shit state it's in!) so I've doused it in harpic. Hopefully that'll attack the worst of it.
Managed a whole 30 minutes sanding the wheel for paint before I snapped and phoned the powder coater!
Some high-tech bearing removal equipment was employed. New ones ordered for much cheapness online!
Trying a new place this time. Should have them back for the weekend.
Scraped some of the dirt, flaking paint and corrosion off the swing arm. Snapped the bolt head off the hugger/brake line mount and there was hella corrosion underneath. It's almost 3mm deep at the worst points so I'm just going to replace the swing arm to be safe.
How she currently sits. Hopefully the parts list won't get too much bigger, but we all know how that always turns out
I'm looking to ditch the standard oil cooler - finding replacement parts and lines is a bit of a pain. I see a lot of the track guys remove theirs as well.
Anybody know if they just plug the holes? I was going to get a hose made up just to basically loop it out?
