The chrome has to go!
This Sportster came to me with every optional chrome cover under the sun and was way too blingy for my taste. So, after taking off the covers the engine was masked up and sanded with 400 grit.
Followed by a light mist coat of high temperature paint/primer combination.
Then a heavier full coverage coat.
Paint was then wiped off the edges of the fins with paint thinners when it was still wet.
And finally unmasked to reveal what Harley should have done all along.
Next up is having the tank and fenders painted in 2k gloss black.
