Stripping the driveshafts



Coat of rust converter and then paint



Cut back the lip on the rear brake sheild for the brembos


Knuckles back from powder coating


Powder coaters got powder in the tapered joint so made a 7 degree reamer to clean them out



Turbo before and after nickel plating the pipes



Cusco mounts were starting to rust and underneath the paint was soft where they had been in contact with the seam sealer



Repainted Poseidon blue



M2 turbo elbow

In the pictures where you have painted with the epoxy did you just take the rust patches down to bare metal and repaint or did you do the entire area back to bare metal?

I took as much of it back to bare metal as I could and made sure that any paint left was solid and scuffed up by the wire wheel

New wheel bearings mounted on the knuckles

Fitting the knuckles



And the ohlins shocks



Had to drill the powdercoat out of the holes



The brace seems to have crushed the seam sealer a little


Brembos mounted

Cleaning up the AYC, it works but it isn't pretty



Managed to snap a valve

New valve stem


Pump apart, had to grind off the top bolt




Nut welded onto the bolt


Cleaning and painting





Valves



Opening the valve carefully with a hammer






More spray painting


After removing as much rust as I could from the motor housing I treated the pitted steel with rust converter from rust.co.uk, it seems like the same stuff as hammerite krust, I'm not that impressed by the finish as it dries with cracks, anyone got advice on using this? or Phos-kleen?

Use Phoskleen B mate it will phosphate it . Then wash it with Chlor X DTS prior to paint . Use Scotch Brite for both procedures

Unfortunately some of the bolts sheared in the turbo exhaust housing



Too much torque I guess


So I mounted it up on the mill at work



Back on
