10-4 on the hand guards (not a great fit, but I added them), the racks and the tank. When painting, I couldn't resist going khaki (or sand) with the engine; it wasn't that pretty to begin with, believe me :0.. I DID remember to tape the oil sight glass (but not the brake fluid reservoir, which I had to clean up later).
Seriously, everything was so rusty, it was an improvement, IMHO. I've got two Pelican cases (rough mounted) that go with the racks, but one case was sprung when I got the bike.
I ordered two more Pelican's off FleaBay and mounting kits from touratech-usa.com. When the mounting hardware arrives, I'll prep and probably paint the new Pelican 5150's, using the remaining one as a tail mount.
At least I've got one to practice on, to make sure the paint sticks
I really appreciate the welcome, Pardner. Tks!
