View Full Version : Removing The Screen

12-06-2005, 01:02 PM
I've just finished spraying my headlight fairing and I need to get the screen off my old one and onto my new one. Do I just pop the screen off from the screws or is there some wierd toll I need to unsrew them with?

Cheers People.

they just pop off its best to put bolts in on your new faring though as there alot easier

Do you mean buy some new ones? I gotta have this done by tomorrow.

Is there any particular method for popping them off? I was gonna go for the screwdriver under the bolts and push method, but if there's an easier way please let me know.

Yes buy new ones, and just use a screw driver for the original bolt things

Couldn't get them on, so i've had to use some spare fairing bolts as a temporary thing. It looks okay, but it's all I've got at the moment.

Not as of yet. The only camera I have is on my phone and that isn't completely accurate in its depiction. I'll take some tomorrow if you still wanna see though. :)

same, how much you spend on all the paint. was it hard?? as ill be sprayin some spare panels when i get round to it

Paint was 12 for 1500ml of paint. I've spent about 60 so far and I've only got one bit to go.

The spraying itself wasn't hard, just make sure you start spraying before coming onto the panels and don't get too close. I also advise making sure there are no blankets or any other items that can deposit hairs onto your nice fresh paint job. I learnt that one the hard way.

Top tip: Sandpaper is your friend. :)

The finish isn't as good as it should be, but this was my first time spraying so I'm happy with the result. I've only got to do the tail piece, but here are some pics of the job so far:

You will have to excuse the shocking photo quality.
