So I'm building a 2001 GSX-R 600 piece by piece. Should be fun . I've got a lot of the important parts already, frame, motor, harness, front and rear suspension, wheels, and swing arm. Ordered some China man fairings for a great price. Just trying to build it for street use and a light to light warrior . I'll be on here from time to time posting updates and pictures.
Here's some now:
and the fairings I ordered. I like that they look OEM but still a diffrent style.
any tips or howtos on how to paint the wheel? I might gonna need to paint my rear wheel. also, paint looks very close to oe, what did you use?
Hey, I first sanded the wheels as close to bare metal as I could, gave them a wash with de-greaser, and let them completley dry. Next I added a single thick coat of primer, allowed it to dry for about an hour then added 3 light coats of white paint allowing about 20 minutes between coats. I let the paint dry over night and added a thick coat of non-yellowing clear.
I used the cheap primer and paint from the auto parts, nothing fancy. The clear was Krylon fast drying.
