    Frankies 850R project thread

    I didn't think to start a project thread for my v70r and that's near completion so waste of time now, but have my new 850r that's seen better days to start one with.

    as it was delivered



    that black crap all over the bumper is oil form where the car was towed to me and as you can see the state of the colour coding is terrible.

    Waw, that's realy pink, do you need new bumpers? can't you just sand/ paint strip the paint off the gray bits?

    Color coding doesn't go with every colour and certainly doesn't work on red 850s.

    Exhaust is different, is it complete exhaust or just the tail pipe?

    I would try masking off around the gray, and get some paint stripper on it, just try a little bit first to see if it works, looking at it I wouldnt be surprised if you got a good pressure washer at it a lot would just peel off.
