I've lost my mind! Decided to completely disassemble. R65 now a project bike!
Below are two pictures of front of engine painted black with aluminum exposed and same for starter/solenoid top cover.
What qualities should the paint have? I know heat resistant but anything else?
What is the technique to paint it black but leave the BMW symbol in aluminum?
Lastly, want to clean the cylinders & heads - lots of corrosive gunk. How easy or difficult is it to soda blast? What type of unit do I need to purchase? I have a heavy duty air compressor.
