Your painted parts look great! as does the rest of the bike, nice work!
Since I got the Convert, I have tried a couple of rattle can high heat paint on the mufflers, and have not been 100% happy with the results. The most heat resistant paint I found is the VHT flat black header paint. The only thing I dont like is that the flat finish, while durable, after a few weeks turns into a dark grayish color, and I really wanted a gloss or semi gloss black finish. The mufflers are a period correct set made specifically for the Guzzi in the 70s by a company called " Alphabet's Headers" and they have a nice mellow rumble, so I wanted to preserve these. Some day I will pony up the bucks to have them properly ceramic coated, but for now ,I found a rattle can product that seems very good. Its a VHT paint made for engine blocks, that is supposed to be chemical resistant,and resistant to heat up to 500 degrees. ( the flat black VHT header paint works up to 2000 degrees) and so far, the finish has held up very well on the mufflers, and its a nice glossy black color. I tested the "chemical resistance" , after cured, with a rag soaked in lacquer thinner,and it did not wipe the paint off. Good Stuff !Rick
