Hi gang,

I'm planning on cleaning up some parts on the CB360, wire brush than re-spray (spray bomb) I've had good results in the past with Tremclad, as it goes on thick....I saw someone using Duplicolour engine enamel on a CB450 on the board and the results look great! The pics I saw below...

Is the stuff durable? What about the brake caliper paint, or high temp stuff? I'd like to touch up the pegs and maybe even spray the gas tank (though I am concerned that spilliage at the pump might ruin the job in sharp order) I see how creative you folks are on a budget and the astounding results. I'd like to soak up all the advice you care to dish out.

Thanks,

Jonny

Johnny,

Thanks for taking a look at my project. I used "RUST-OLEUM" (gloss protective emanel black) for everything but the motor. You can find it at Lowes, Walmart or other places. For the motor I used DUPLI-COLOR engine enamel, Primed with Grey Engine Primer DE1612, then semi-gloss black DE1635.
Since my project is not complete yet I don't know how durible it actually is but from what I researched I believe it is. As for usage issues, I had none. I just followed the directions on the can and it came out pretty well. If I remember it was about $5 or $6 a can.

Good Luck, Matt

Thanks Matt,

I like the rust paint as well, because it goes on thick and evenly. We have a chain of stores called Canadian Tire, which sell a derivative house brand for a few bucks less. They of course have high gloss, high temp black enamel in the more expensive brand.....but no high gloss high temp in the budget brand. buggers. :!:

Your bike is stunning....I love the CB450's...they remind me a lot of my old Triumph Daytona.
