I got a quick question. I have never worked with a dremmel before, how big is the learning curve with this tool? I am a pretty handy guy and the scratches on my engine covers are driving me crazy. I am sure I will try this no matter what just kinda curious about what i am in for......thanks

Dremel isn't the ideal tool for sanding, but if you use the wire brush its more forgiving.

If the damage is too deep, use a body filler like bondo.

:-
Sand(heavy), fill, sand(180), prime, sand(600), paint away!

bondo can stand the heat from the engine? if so that sounds alot easier than trying to grind scrapes out of metal...........thanks for your help

Sorry to bump an old thread, but thought it would be better than getting the "use the search" comments since this is the thread I would need to have searched.

Anyhow, I was wondering if that paint was the Dupli-Color Low Gloss Black Engine Enamel (DE1634)? That is the only Dupli-Color high temp paint that I could find that seemed to be fairly close to the engine color. Could it have been the DH1602 that I found listed on Dupli-Colors website that I couldn't find at the store?

Thanks in advance!

In the pictures, only the smaller circle portion is sanded. Is that the only part that I need to sand or do I need to sand down the ENTIRE case (both big circle and little circle)?

you need to sand down the whole cover both of them, its gives the paint grip.

1) - Sand the whole cover with 220 grit.

2) - Use acetone to clean the area you just sanded, also use gloves and well vented area so you don't breath it in acetone

3) - Use soap and water to clean off any excess of acetone.

4) - Now apply a coat of paint when surface is dry, don`t add to much so it runs but enough it coats the whole area.

5) - wait 30-45 minutes for the first coat to dry.

6) - Add another coat of paint.

7) - Wait 30-45 minutes to dry.

8) - Add another coat of paint.

9) - Wait 30-45 minutes to dry.

10) - Use 1000 grit wet sand paper.

11) - Use soap and water to clean the area off.

12) - Now apply the last coat of paint.

13) -- wait till it is fully dry and look at it, does it look good, if not then re-apply another coat.

14) - Congratulations you are done!!!

I'm think of trying this, I don't know though I'm not a good painter. How hard was this to do?

its not hard, just make sure you sand the whole area and do the steps.

The way you paint is you do spirts, spray and count to 1 stop, in a sweeping motion till the area is all hit, and do that for every other coat.

Really its like swinging your arm and hit the spray and hold it for one second.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I believe I posted on this last year for some instructions how to do this.....just want to say I did and it turned out awesome! I repainted both covers a darker shade of gray and you can't even tell they were scraped except for my clutch cover b/c it had a really deep mark. I would post a pic but I dont have one!

took me about 2hours for this whole process. sanding/prepping the 1st hour, and the other hour i sprayed it with 10min intervals in between. left it for about another hour or so, then rode around so that the heat from the engine would cure the paint. its been over a month and it looks rock solid!

Thanks I am gonna do the same now

....

Update:
Just finished, it looks great. only if you are up close can you notice some of the imperfections where the metal was gouged. from 2 steps back it looks just like it came from the factory. I was gonna spend a ridulous amount on new covers but for less than $25 i got everything i need to breath new life into the bike

just curious why you guys never mentioned applying primer after the initial sanding down of the surface. Is it because the paint sticks anyway to a sanded surface?

prim is ok if you got huge dips in the cover but if you got that deep of ones I would just replace it because who knows if you might have a crack. It's all up to what you want to do but high temp paint works like a charm without prim.

Hey Dave,
awesome job! I just found your thread and have some questions if you still remember:
1. Did you remove the small cap for dremelling?
2. If yes, how did you prevent small metal fragments getting into the engine when dremelling the edge of the whole?
3. Did you paint the small cap separately or screwed back and painted together with the big piece?
4. If U get it right, you dremelled the scratched parts (where metal can be seen) and sand papered all the engine cover (but left the original paint on on the unscratched parts). Is this correct?
5. You say you used DH 1602 High Heat Black paint. Is that right? (I found also two other types of paint that might be similar: DE 1634 Low Gloss Black, DE 1651 Cast Coat Iron - I might order both to see the difference, I d love to have it as close to origi as it can be.)

Sorry for the many questions, but I am very excited and want to to the job right. Thanks for your help!

Exactly what color paint did you use? I need to do this to my stator cover. I'm going to spray it while on the bike.
