So... the Rockhopper has been off the road for a while to protect it as there where quite a few (down to the metal) chips, scrapes and scratches from over the years...
So last month it went to LSN in castleford to get powder coated..
chose them after seeing the great work they did on Rob's kilauea and having some alloy wheels done there earlier in the year..
they didn't have the exact same colour so i chose the darkest metal flake silver they had...
heres how it looked when it came back from the powder coaters last month..
the pics really don't do it justice though... as the metal flake really sparkles in the light and looks lovely!
ordered up some decals too.. and here's some pictures of how it sits currently after applying them..
And sometime over christmas i'll be getting busy with the laquer to protect the decals.. might as well do a proper job and see if it lasts another 16 years..
