Rear Fender Progress

The fender has been taking me so long, you can see all the surface rust that has formed.

I trimmed the end of the fender to make it even with the bottom of the swingarm.

Then I used my hand drill and nylon brush attachment to remove all the surface rust.

I used Duplicolor Self-Etching Primer followed by their Filling Primer.

After a few rounds of priming, sanding, priming, sanding, etc., I sprayed a Metal Specks silver basecoat.

That was followed with Metal Specks Red.

The pinstriping and lace is next followed by black and clear.  This is the same process and materials I used for the tank and previous fender.  When it's all done, assuming it all goes well, the rear fender should match the tank perfectly.
