CX 500 Frame Update

Well, the soda blasting and sanding continues. I never would have guessed how many hours it would take to prep the frame for paint. With another four hours of blasting yesterday and three hours of sanding today… at this point, I think I’m about 60% done with around 20 hours invested… so about 13-14 hours to go.

  1. Blimey! that looks like loads of work!! Are you painting it yourself, or are you powder coating? Would it not be worth having it shotblasted?

  2. I started welding up my frame at the weekend & have discovered some poor repair work on the swinging arm & some rusted through holes on the underside, so I must be a glutton too!!
