You could scuff them with scotchbrite to dull them if the shine is too much for you?

I had considered this, however It will probably just look like balls, As in, A glossy paint job with score marks all over it from Scottying it back

 

I will probably just call you today and order some Satin paint I think

Well. Cert is booked for may the 3rd.

 

This should be interesting. 

Giz me a bit of time to sort the few things it needs hopefully for a wof also. Pink sticker life is hard.

 

 

 

 

 

Hardcore that is.

Spring, or those toothy things, or nylocks. Cert people are very keen on those. Also the 300mm clamps if you have run any new fuel lines.

Yeah got most of that covered I'm pretty sure. still need to do the tops of my front shocks with lock nuts. but yeah, Will give it a bit of a go over.

Fuel lines are all factory besides swapping the hose to EFI. Pretty sure. I have everything covered.

But as the old folks say, you never can tell.

Cert is tomorrow.  Mix of nervousness,  excitement,  and not looking forward to getting up at 6.30 lol.

 

I would be more excited if it was just the cert I had to deal with.  But also need to sort a proper wheel alignment, aka double wish bone fun, and the pink sticker inspection,  which could be its own can of worms. Still. Gotta start somewhere.

Kicker, go see Steve at Bridgestone Miramar. He did the wheel alignment on my Coon and turned it from a bit of a wanderlust dog to a point and go sweetheart.

Good price too.
