Not happy with the POR-15 engine enamel this time. The aluminum color doesn't level well like the MG Maroon did, and although I spent about a half-hour stirring it, came out very streaked looking. It will do as this is not a true restoration, just a rescue.

Yesterday I installed new-to-me front forks and a Super-Brace. In the process I found that the fork guard/beauty cover mounting hole bottoms were damaged. one side was broken out completely the other side was mostly broken out- so i broke it the rest of the way with one finger. I was probably close to losing it on the road.
Here's how I fixed it- I bought tapered rubber plugs and longer m6x1.0 stainless SHCS. I pushed the plugs into the holes as hard as I dared (didn't want to split the plastic) but compressed in there tight enough to hold it for me while I cut the excess with a knife and also hole it for me to drill thru it.

This is mounted very nicely and probably more stable than it was new. I need to trim the topside rubber better or maybe cap the rubber with a stainless washer...
