Now lets talk about a challenge.Ill type ,you read. Ron Spear told me of his good friends 2003 Anniversary Edition Springer Softail. This Bike was beyond dirty .Ron told me he wanted to get it cleaned up as a gift for Dave. So we stole the bike from Dave's shed.
There were many pieces of chrome FUBAR'ed ,Ron said "Just paint them black" I said now hold on I have something so much better. Hydrodipping . So we removed all the parts and I had a buddy doing the process & I wanted to learn. So I did it all myself except I let him spray it (he was tuned to the paint process) when I was ready to reinstall I felt it lacked a "POP" " A "Hey look at me " the skulls & barbwire blended ,SO I dropped a drop of Testers red to make eyes all over the place , NOW she popped . Cleaned the front spokes up while replacing the snotted up fender and polished out the windscreen. About a month in Dave noticed his bike missing ,so we had to fess up .He was almost in tears when he seen the bike "Better than new". I would like to do more hydrodipping.
