aluminun cases
« on: December 04, 2012, 07:46:18 am »
my dad gave me his 82 virago with 25 k on it . has been sitting for 5 years . i am in cleaning mode . some of the aluminum is funky. i have  sanded and buffed handle bars. they look better than new. what is best kind of clear coat should i put on engine cases., or should i , or just polish now and then? runs great with new battery and carb rebuild. have 300 miles on it just road testing and tweeking.

I would go with the vht high heat engine paint. Really good stuff. You will pay a few dollars more but will last a lot longer and lay better then oher brands.
