Possibly a powder coat could fill them in depending on how big they are. Take them to somebody who does that sort of thing and ask.

re spray time?
The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.

Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 160.

Ok so ive had a pro look at it (and not the street walker type)
The clear coating has been eatten away in spots. Front is worse than rear as is usually the case
Options are to strip it right back and polish like shit and every after a ride until its re coated in clear.

Im going to source a hydraulic lift before I give it a crack. I couldn't stand the pain on my back

Pic up when I get home. Another 1600km today

Thanks for the info too guys. Very helpful.
Ill be seeing you on the road very soon Mr Phere8me

Cheers
Poss
