may i ask you what you used on your frame ? looks nice, i need to do the same to mine also. zero rot, but the factory coating has flaked off in a few minor places and has developed surface rust and id like to take care of it soon, probally around the same time i do ufc skids in the spring.

ty, why did you not opt for something like por15 or rust inhibitor paints that people hold in higher regards to rustoleum ? just curious...or do you feel rustoleum is as good.

I see that youre from ny, we have really no snow fall down here so that plays a big part for me. Ive always used rustoleum on all my projects. The hammered brand is almost impossible to get off really the only time ive had it come off is when i was up against a rock.

2 biggest reason is price and I have a shop 20 minutes from my house that can tune them. Going with 16" in the front 14" in the rear.
