Went and saw a local panel beater and he rang them and they said they only sold the hardener in 1ltr so the duropox ( no etch )would cost $270. Fuck that ! so one person there says a completely different thing to the other guy. I tried to ring them again today to find out what the go was .

    Good one Ian. Nice to see you the other day. Got the RHS lower cowling on the XF650 yesterday. Took 3hrs all as oppose to over a day for the LHS 1 can of primer suitable fo ABS plastic from Super cheap Autos $25, 2 cans of light grey colour match acrylic lacquer from Resenes Automotive $82. Just used the sand paper Connie had laying about. I'm very happy with the result considering I've never painted a panel that size before. Couldn't imagine what the job would cost by a professional auto painter.

    Hey Ian I found a Clymer DOHC CB900-1100 workshop manual in reasonable condition for its age. Ex librar. I got it from the annual P.N. Red Cross book sale years ago.

    Do you want it? I have no use for it at all.
