Re:Just got a new project #11
I had a similar problem with a CB750 tank, I ended up chipping away with a screwdriver and grinding with a Dremel tool. I was able to get all the Bondo off, but It was to bad of shape so ended covering it back up. The PO pulled out the bracket holding the badge and it left holes on the tank.

Re:Just got a new project #12
Looks like someone didn't use the proper tool to disassemble the clutch.

This is correct ... We are locked down in the UK so no where to buy one, gave it a go..... And a very bad decision that was.

I will give blasting a try. I have access to a really nice blasting cabinet and never gave that a thought.

Re:Just got a new project #15
Yup. You have the 12 volt starter/generator system.. :likey

It requires a 12 volt battery and requires a good battery to make spark for the ignition.

(The magneto models are 6 volt and don't require a battery for spark)

Paint stripper works wonders for softening the filler, but you will have to re paint the tank.

Re:Just got a new project #17
Hi all

So I was going to get the frame etc sand blasted however as you might expect I can get this service done because everywhere is on lock down.

Are there any other options? Essentially I just want the frame super clean so I can prime and repaint, I don't think there is really anything wrong with it away from that

Will acetone dissolve it?


Paint stripper will soften it enough but will need several coats, let sit, scrape out and repeat. That will work .

Re:Just got a new project #19
On this , as I am stuck in limbo on the project, I have taken to trying to fig out the Bondi with nail varnish remover! A.k.a slightly watered down acetone.

I'm finding that coating a tissue in the stuff and then cling filming it to the tank seems to be working, but I have yet to see if it will truly work!!

Re:Just got a new project #20
Can't say I have a lot of experience removing Bondo but it seems like a wire wheel in a cordless drill might do the trick?
