Thanks for the info. I'll check with my local paint supplier. What year is your bike? Might help when looking for the color. Is your paint a Tri-coat?

been sick a few days so its moving along a litle slow here, but i have been doing a few things here and there!

Finsihed welding the frame under the front end! all that its missing now is a few brackets and the gear box mount, but ill weld that on as im going...


Finaly made some progress on the IC too, almost happy with the outcome :P needs a little more work, but i think i will work well! and the Clamps on the IC is easly accessible with a radiator between the inlet /outlet pipes!


Made a custom Idle control on the intake to, since i have ITB`s its not as easy as throwing on a idle air valve :P Pics on that later!

Started monting Poly bushes on the front end to, between welding :P (that aluminium stuff gets hot!!)

The old benz also got some primer today!

last gearlink in place!



Welded the clutch housing to the adapter plate!



Bilstein Racing! 350/150 valving 35mm shorter, and the struts is also 40mm shorter so 75mm is the minimum lowering here
