Radiator cover


Recommended Posts

This might seem a stupid question but I noticed the paint on my radiator cover is stripping off and seems to be peeling quite a lot now. With the fine weather coming I was thinking of taking the paint of the outside edge and the middle grill bit. I was then thinking of painting the middle bit of the grill a dark red colour and the edge Black (spray paint).

Firstly is this possible?

I thought this would be a good place to try spray paints as its not that visable but the slight red on the bike will cosmetically make it look a bit nicer (imo).

I was thinking of using these:

On there website there is not a red but im pretty sure there is.

So is this a good idea? If so whats the best way to strip the pain?

If someone could do small points on EVERYTHING you have to do (no matter how trivia) to do a good job that would be great. IM not sure on wheather i need to gdo a finish like gloss etc...

Thanks in advance,

I think that you can use Nitromors to strip the old paint off. As it will be on the front of the radiator it shouldn't be exposed to silly heat.....so I'm not sure you need to use special heat proof paint....but I stand to be corrected on this..... :wink: Just make sure it is really clean before you paint it.....and use a good primer first..... 8-)
