I have a GL1200 I thats been idle for a long time. But now she is getting the attention. Paint is going to be a big one for me. When I paint the hole shop is too.

Then there's the gas tank, now it's got a little rust but, not to worry. Men have walked on the Moon so I can fix rust in the tank.( by sending it out to some one who knows how to deal with it). What I dont know is what to do with the rusted chrome items, can they be rechromed for less than buying new? Any way, thanks from both Maureen and I. and if you drive thru Parker, give me a gingle, the door is allways open.

I'm a aircraft mechanic by trade sothis project might not be so tough. Ive had a wing since 1976 and she was a 75 GL1000 with a Daytona fairing w/lowers and I put a raparound "TripTrunk" on it was one piece, with a detachable trunk. I worked for Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. in Alaska and offten rode her to work, about 350 miles one way. Since then I bought a GL1100 and now a GL1200. Looking for a new Wing next year. I'll keep the 1200 she is a fine ride.

Thanks,

Doug and Maureen:waving:

Hi,
I've never done it before, but I think rechroming rusty chrome parts probably won't be cost effective. Chrome itself doesn't rust, so any rust you see is coming from the steel below, and coming out through the pores in the chrome plating. So odds are there is plenty of rust under the chrome.
