Tubes

And....................here is another thing.

My tubes have a rope scuff down the side of the tubes.
My question is, is it possible to paint over this mark. It is approx. 1cm wide and 10cm long stretching down between a grab handle and the rubbibg strake. (Yes I know I should have sheathed the fender ropes first-but lesson learned).
And if it is, what sort of paint should I use. It is Pennel Industries material that is used for the tubes.

Hi Brian, long time no speak.

I dont frequent here that often now days, so coincidental you've posted i suppose.

I didnt have much sucess with the hypalon paint. I think the best option is a cleverly disguised "patch" over that and on the other side to match. I would condier a set of them, either yellow or a contrasting colour to protect all point of weat (fender ropes!). Patches can be replaced if it happend again...

I imagine getting someone on IoM to do it might be another hurdle, however.

too true and its easy to do

what you need to do is very thoroughly prepare your surfaces, they have to be roughed up very well! You can do it with a plastic wire brush in a drill.

tools needed
Bostik 2402 probably 1/2 a litre
Drill
Plastic wire brush http://www.tooled-up.com/MicroCatego...=3877#prodlist
Heat Gun
Paint brush
Thinners
Masking tape
Roller or heavy scraper.
Buddy or two
disposable latex gloves

After prepping the strake and tubes wipe down with a rag and thinners. after a while waft the heat gun over the areas to ensure evaporation of thinners.

Masking tape either side of the glue line will ensure no overspill of glue

Mix the glue up with a small amount of thinners 10% and hardener leave for a minute then paint a thin coat on both surfaces when this dry do it again. previous to this you will have put on 2 pairs of the disposable gloves. It means you can get rid of the top pair when it gets too gluey. When this coat becomes tacky you have to do the sticking

Now that you have gotten wasted on the glue fumes the job becomes a lot more fun

When you apply the patch it's a one time hit so you need to get it right. when it's in place work the heat gun over it and rub it in firmly with the roller.

You'll have to glue outside of the worn area and obviously I would abarid the worn area very gently

Rogue,

I was asking if it were possible to slap on a dollop of paint. Your fullsome reply, which is to be treasured by me, is more like Heston Blumental.
I am not quite up for the boiling, drizzling and reductions yet although the "wafting bit" has its obvious appeal.
Out of interest how many customers would your recipe cater for?
