Painting session 3

July 2015 - Having been unable to completely remove the sticky blue paint from the bottom yoke, the whole assembly, along with the headlight bracket, went to Max Power for a blasting. Extensive use of shot peening eventually got rid of the ugly blueish coating to reveal the bare metal at last.

Then came the masking step.

And finally, this painting session is over with nice looking, freshly painted yokes (masking tape still to be removed, though). The way these parts react even to light layers of paint is such a thing to cheer about I really wished I'd had more to do.
