    Nice and clean!!!

    Picked up a crappy blasting cabinet on ebay. I had to take it apart 3 times and seal it with RTV because it was almost like an open blaster! I also had to replace the light inside because it was about as bright as a dead flashlight.

    Anyway, this was the first round of parts. GP, raider, and kawi stuff there. All blasted, primed with zinc chromate, then mercury primer, and finally mercury phantom black. Some of them look like black ice!

    Mike looks great I love that Merc paint I did some of my outdrive stuff last year and it came out nice as well. The zinc chromate is the ticket to making it last good call there.

    Mike ,I like that primer.............the black looks great too, I am using the original color look on engine parts and the black on the pump parts also, the original blueish silver yamaha color is available near my house if you need some, you could actually paint JUST the pipe and it would matchthe other parts of a 1100 engine

    Thanks guys. I got the zinc chromate tip from Mr. BULLRAIDER.

    Jeff, my 1200 has black cylinders with a bright blue pipe. the raider is all the stock greyish metallic. bepending on what I go with, I may need some of that paint

    Oh yeah, I forgot to offer you guys what I offered my polaris brothers. If you need something blasted, send it to me. Just cover the shipping both ways.

    Yes if you want some of that greyish blue color let me know, it really looks good, I just got 50 lbs of glass from a place that had it marked 10.00$....
