The top of the trunk, saddle bags, etc. has deteriorated so bad that it's going to be a lot of sanding to smooth it all out. Then there's the stripping to deal with. I've been reading the back post's on the removing old stripping. Doesn't sound like to much fun to me.

I guess when the 86 Honda manual was written the paint was not as sophisticated as it is now. Didn't think about that. I'm pretty good at shooting lacquer on wood so thought I would try painting the Wing myself. If I mess it up to bad I'll take it in to a local auto body shop for a re-paint.
