What am I about to do? FINALLY DONE! Pics.

Postby nitro450exp » Mon Aug 03, 2015 8:39 am

Well the parts are trickling in.
Some prep pictures.
I have sprayed in a professional booth before, but this will be a real backyard
adventure, with 2K cans of primer and topcoat.

Wish me luck.

Pre scuff and chip repair.

Post scuff and chip repair, masked for 2K primer.

2007 Lower profile pump has arrived.
Quick connect coupler is broken, will reuse '06 one.

just waiting on 3M fine line tape and fuel sensor (used) and then the fun begins.

Have:
Tank (2007 used black)
Inner shields (New)
Pump (2007 Used)
zip ties (KTM M6 plug type for sensor harness)
All hardware (2006 tank)
Fairings (Ti 2006 will be modified to fit )
Ti 2K aerosol Paint (GM WA529F Dark Bronze Metallic )
2K aerosol Primer
Paint prep and supplies.

Need:
3mm 3M fine line tape (Mask off original black center section and tank pad)
2007 Fuel sensor (used) orientation is 90 Deg from 2006 type.
Place to paint. I have no garage as I rent an apartment in downtown Paris.

Fun and games to ensue.
I will probably paint it in the parking Garage at work, lighting is terrible but it is inside and should keep stuff out of the paint.

No Orange , see above Ti = Titanium (GM WA529F Dark Bronze metallic)

Only orange is the KTM anodised Brake lids and clutch lid and Levers.

Painting aside - I wouldn't screw around with the piece-of-shit OE "Quick connect coupler". They all will eventually break.

The paint supplier did not send any tech data sheets with the order.
I am waiting for the info, I have sent several emails.

I need to know flash time, window time, final flash time and sand time.

I did google it, but came up with very wide range of times depending on manufacturer.
Flash times ranged from 2~3 Min all the way up to 20~30 min.
And Window time from 12 H to 48 H.

But that aside here Is the primer.

Image

Once I know the sand time, I will feather the edge, retape and then after 12H hit it with the color.

nice job so far. Looking forward to see your results.
This stuff always takes a longtime to do especially if the person doing it doesn't have a direct line to the right industry people. My bellypan took a lot longer to do because I wanted to be careful so to get a reasonable result. I recon 30% of the total build time was spent chasing up and understanding the many produce tech spec sheets so everything had to be compatible and work together chemically.
Good job nitro. I hope you get a great result mate.

SS

Bike is still in one piece and being ridden.
This is a large tank conversion.
That is why the color change
The later larger tank bikes (07-11) Were not offered in Titanium.
I will swap tanks this week shouldn't take more than a few hours.
