  • Darn bugs!

    Today I painted my bumper, lower air scoop and a mirror to take care of some road rash. Also painted the new panel we made for the top of the radiator. I don't have a good place to paint inside, but had the perfect calm warm and dry morning. Wouldn't you know, less than a minute after I laid down a nice smooth coat on the bumper a darn bee landed right in the middle of it and started wiggling around in paint! So tomorrow I will be back at it with some 500 grit and another coat.

    Be careful,... Worm's can also attract birds.

    Hehe.

    PS.
    Sorry about the paint though.

        Go to a sports or outddoor store (or probably even Walmart) and buy mosquito netting. Set up something a little taller than your stand so it doesn't touch the paint, and you're all set. (I built an enclosure using cheap PVC piping.) Mosquito netting is pretty cheap, and works beautifully.

              Hope you still have enough of that "free" paint left.

                Well, a bee is better than bird poop!
